MIAMI, Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown just got a whole lot greener by doubling the amount of parking spaces equipped with Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations to meet public demand. The 221-room Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown, was awarded LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2012 when it became the first newly-built LEED certified hotel within City of Miami limits. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the nation's preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
"We have seen an increased demand for our EV charging stations by guests and visitors that are using more electric cars and at times occupying all the parking spaces we had available. We believe the additional number of EV charging stations will provide immediate availability without the need to wait for an empty space." said Eduardo Chapoval, general manager of the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown.
The Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown was also named recently one of the top 10 Highest-Rated Green hotels in the United States by tripadvisor.com according to its Annual Eco-Travel Survey and it has also held the #1 Ranking among 129 Miami-area properties on TripAdvisor.com®, the world's largest travel website since 2012. "Our Green initiatives and TripAdvisor ratings prove that a hotel can prioritize social and environmental responsibility alongside affordability, service, and value-added amenities," said Mr. Chapoval.
