Hilton Naples Awarded TripAdvisor Green Leaders™ Platinum Status

Hilton Naples Earns Platinum Level in the Trip Advisor Green Leaders Program
Our Hilton Naples team proudly announces we qualified for the Platinum Level Green Leader status into the new TripAdvisor® GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the U.S.
TripAdvisor GreenLeaders have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site.  Hilton Naples earned the top distinction of Platnimum Level for it's sustainability practices.
“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these accommodations and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online audience of more than 200 million travelers.”
The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the United Nations Environment Programme.
Hilton Naples Hotel is part of The Florida Department of Environmental Protection Green Lodging Program and the Hilton Worldwide Lightstay Conservation program.
The Hilton Naples Hotel became the first hotel in Naples to become a Florida Green Lodging Hotel in November of 2007. After successfully implementing their initial green initiatives and sustaining them for more than one year, they became “Two Palm” certified in May 2009.  In order to remain a green lodging certified property, new and innovative plans must be put into place each year to further conservation efforts.
