Conrad Hilton Jr. was born in Dallas, Texas. His father, Conrad Hilton, was the founder of Hilton Hotels, and his mother was the former Mary Adelaide Barron. Hilton grew up with three siblings: William Barron Hilton, Eric Michael Hilton and Constance Francesca Hilton. He was the great-uncle of Paris and Nicky Hilton. He attended New Mexico Military Institute.
Hilton had an affair with his stepmother, Zsa Zsa Gabor, in 1944, according to claims made by Gabor after his death. He was Elizabeth Taylor's first husband, (May 6, 1950 – January 29, 1951) but his "gambling, drinking, and abusive behavior" horrified her and her parents. The marriage ended in divorce after eight months.
In 1958, Hilton married oil heiress from Oklahoma, Patricia "Trish" McClintock. They had two sons, Conrad Nicholson Hilton III and Michael Otis Hilton. McClintock filed for divorce from Hilton on 10 February 1964, which was granted in 1965. Accordingly, in 1960, his father Hilton Sr. also made a proposal of bethrothment to Stella Araneta, which she respectfully declined.
