The Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown has been honored by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Environmental Leadership Program (ELP), earning the status of GOLD Leader and becoming the first hotel in Denver to be recognized for their efforts in sustainability.
The Embassy Suites Denver Downtown was also Denver's first LEED Certified Silver Hotel, as well as being awarded the Green Leader badge by TripAdvisor. After completing a renovation this year, the hotel converted 4,800 lightbulbs to LED light, reducing energy costs by 5.88%. All furniture that remained in good condition after the renovation was donated to local charities. The hotel also donates hundreds of pounds of soap and shampoo bottles to Clean the World, which sends the goods to third world countries.
The ELP Program in Colorado is designed to recognize companies in the state that are impacting the environment positively. Companies earn the award by going beyond state and federal regulations.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our dedication to offering guests an environmentally-friendly stay in the heart of downtown Denver,” says General Manager Ed Blair. “We are constantly striving to finding new ways to operate this property as green as possible.”
