NAPLES, Fla. -

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection announced that Hilton Naples featuring Shula’s Steak House received the Two Palm Certification under the department’s Green Lodging Program. The Hilton is the first Two Palm designated hotel in Naples.

Hilton Naples has shown a 12-month period of environmentally friendly practices, increasing recycling, reducing water consumption by 20%, dramatically lowering waste, and reducing natural gas and electrical usage. The hotel’s Green Team participated in numerous “green events” such as the Edison Greenfest in Naples.

“Our entire team is dedicated to preserving Florida’s natural resources,” said general manager Clark Hill. “Our goal is to reach the highest level of certification under the Green Lodging Program, the Three Palm designation.”
