Boca Raton, FL April 1, 2009. Hilton Suites Boca Raton becomes one of the 1st lodging properties in Boca Raton, FL to receive the Green Eco-Leaf Rating. Currently Hilton Suites Boca Raton is the first of the hotels in Boca Raton (http://iStayGreen.org/getcityus.cfm/city/Boca Raton/st/FL) to complete the comprehensive environmental audit administered by iStayGreen.org. The property earned 2 Green Eco-Leafs, which is a “Good” rating.
All Green Eco-Leaf Rated properties are committed to environmentally friendly initiatives and meet Florida Green Lodging program standards. The Hilton Suites Boca Raton was awarded a One Palm Certification in 2008. Richard Varner, founder of iStayGreen.org states: “Simple changes helped the Hilton Suites Boca Raton earn their 2 Green Eco-Leaf Rating and become one of the 1st lodging properties rated. It’s great to see they’re intent on insuring a more sustainable future in travel.”
