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.” 

Metro Public Works recently announced the start of a new glass recycling initiative to being in Lower Broadway in Nashville, TN.

Mayor Megan Barry said it was the city’s first glass bottle recycling initiative. “Lower Broadway has become an international tourist destination, and long-neck bottles are now synonymous with the honky-tonk experience,” Barry said. “For too long, we’ve had to throw away glass that could have been recycled and repurposed. This program is like no other, and we are excited to lead the charge toward a more sustainable city.”

 

The Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Stapleton in Denver, Colorado, has been awarded the Connie Pride Award of Excellence.

“It is wonderful to see our hotel partners recognized for their hard work and exceptional service,” said Justin Clark, Visit Aurora director of sales and services. “The Connie Pride Award of Excellence is a national recognition that places our properties on the map for meeting planners and visitors to Colorado.”

 

It’s less than a month away from what has unofficially become known as Colorado Meetings Week.
