Hilton Aims To Become First Certified Energy-Efficient Hotel

Boasting a raft of sustainable design elements, including a heat-reflecting roof, the Hilton Vancouver (WA) is hoping to become the first hotel to receive a LEED certification

"Designed by the Portland, Oregon firm of Fletcher Farr Ayotte, the Hilton Vancouver is 30% more energy-efficient than city code requires. Green measures include CO2 sensors that adjust the temperature in vacant meeting rooms and hallways, a heat-reflecting roof, painting and carpet made from low-emitting materials, a construction recycling rate of 75 percent, water-efficient landscaping, and operable windows."
