Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown - Convention Center as Gold Leader by Colorado's Environmental Leadership Program

DENVER, CO. September 20, 2017 - The Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown - Convention Center has been honored as a GOLD Leader by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Environmental Leadership Program, making it the third hotel in Colorado and the ONLY hotel in Denver to be honored with this coveted green recognition.

Colorado’s ELP honors companies for going beyond state and federal environmental regulations and for their outstanding environmental achievements that help keep Colorado a desirable place to work and live.

Denver’s first LEED Certified Silver hotel, the Embassy Suites Denver Downtown was also recently awarded the Green Leader badge by TripAdvisor and is currently ranked as the #1 Green hotel in Denver on TripAdvisor.

The full-service downtown Denver hotel completed a major property renovation earlier this year that included new modern furniture, lighting, carpet and soft goods in tones of blue-gray and camel in each of the 403 spacious guest suites and 27, 000 square feet of meeting space – which can host up to 650 people.

During the renovation, the hotel converted 4, 800 incandescent light bulbs to LED light, which reduced energy costs by 5.66% Also as part of the renovation, the hotel donated all furniture that was still in good condition to local charities. 

Each quarter, the hotel donates nearly 200 pounds of soap and 200 pounds of shampoo bottles to Clean the World, which repurposes the leftovers into new soaps for third world countries. 

“We are thrilled to be recognized for our dedication to offering guests an environmentally-friendly stay in the heart of downtown Denver, ” said General Manager Ed Blair. “We are constantly striving to finding new ways to operate this property as green as possible.”

Located in the heart of downtown Denver, across the street from the Colorado Convention Center, amenities at the hotel include a saline-based indoor swimming pool, 24-hour fitness facility and 24-hour BusinessLink™ Business Center. Guests can enjoy complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast daily and an Evening Reception with snacks, wine & beer.

Managed by Denver’s Sage Hospitality, the Embassy Suites Denver Downtown is owned by Carey Watermark Investors 2 (CWI 2), a non-traded REIT focused on investing in lodging and lodging-related properties.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
