• Denver's Embassy Suites by Hilton is recognized for sustainable efforts

    POSTED October 2, 2017

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.” 

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.


To give guests a top-of-the-line meeting and events experience, Lion Square Lodge, managed by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, has announced the start of a $1.25 million renovation of its meeting space. The project will include significant upgrades and design enhancements that embrace the property’s rustic lodge atmosphere and stunning surrounding scenery.


Denver is getting ready to roll out the red carpet for the International Live Events Association’s annual conference ILEA Live this summer at Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. Colorado Meetings + Events is proud to be the media sponsor for this year’s conference, and we are looking forward to seeing many of our Colorado colleagues and meeting new people from across the world.
