Hilton Naples Awarded TripAdvisor Platinum GreenLeader Status

Hilton Naples has been accepted as a Platinum level GreenLeader into the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program for another year. The GreenLeader program helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the United States. GreenLeader levels range from the basic GreenPartner to the top-tier Platinum level. 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. 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 Program. 


How the program works:

  • All hotels must apply and be accepted into the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders Program, and qualify as a GreenLeader or GreenPartner.
  • GreenLeaders have achieved one of four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The higher the level, the greater the impact of a property's green practices.
  • GreenPartners have met the program's minimum requirements including having a towel and linen re-use program, using energy-efficient light bulbs, tracking energy usage, recycling, and educating staff and guests on green practices. Source: www.tripadvisor.com

Great Deals for a Great Dad!

Ok, you have checked Dad into his fabulous man cave oasis at the Hilton Naples, splurged and ordered him a 48oz. steak for dinner at Shula’s Steak House Naples (and he happily joined the Shula’s ‘I ate it all’ 48oz. club), relaxed a bit and then what? Let’s celebrate Dad all weekend long with these great deals for Father’s Day weekend!

Dad’s Day Out – Saturday, June 14th, 2014 at 10:00am at Village on Venetian Bay
In celebration of dad's special day, bring him out to Village on Venetian Bay. The Ferrari Club of Naples will have their cars on display, which you will be able to browse throughout the Village. Have a free photo of dad and you with your favorite car, compliments of the Village, as a memento of this great morning!

Father’s Day at the Naples Zoo   – Sunday, June 15th, 2014 at 10:00am at the Naples Zoo
Want to get rid of those half-empty bottles of cheap aftershave from previous Father’s Days? Dads can trade those for free Zoo admission by bringing the bottle to the Zoo on Father’s Day. Why does the Zoo want aftershave? For the animals, of course. This annual call for cologne provides new scents for the animals to enjoy all year. Dads and their families will be able to watch the animals’ reactions to these aftershaves as the scents are used throughout the day for animal enrichment. If Dad doesn’t have aftershave to donate, some of Mom’s perfume will work, too. Otherwise, dads can take advantage of an online offer for free admission with child ticket purchase in place of cologne.

See the Journey Ambassador in the Naples Hilton lobby for more information.

Father’s Day at Sun-N-Fun Lagoon Sunday, June 15th, 2014 at 10:00am at Sun-N-Fun Lagoon
The water park features a water slide that drops into the 1,200 foot long Sunny's Lazy River; four water slides leading to a drop pool; a heated family pool; the Tadpole Pool children's wading area with a fish slide and more; and Turtle Cove, a pool for children ages 5 to 12 with lily pads and ropes for climbing.

See the Journey Ambassador in the Naples Hilton lobby for more information.

Conclude the Father's Day celebrations with another legendary experience from Shula's Steak House Naples!



HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
