SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Hilton San Diego Bayfront has been named the number one most sustainable Hilton hotel in the United States of America by Hilton Worldwide.

Hilton San Diego Bayfront has recently received multiple of green sustainability awards for the property's multitude of recycling and energy conservation efforts. These notable recognitions come from a national and local level. In addition to being named the most sustainable Hilton property in the USA, City of San Diego has awarded the hotel with the 2014 Director's Recycling Award, and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) recently recongnized the hotel as the Energy Champion in Hospitality at their 2014 Energy Showcase Awards.

"We have achieved nearly 20 percent reduction in energy use," says Tip Jozsa, director of property operations for Hilton San Diego Bayfront. "As a result, we recently garnered the number one ranking for efficiency in the U.S. versus other properties in Hilton's LightStay program."

The hotel has been vetting multiple on-site renewable energy sources since its opening in 2008 and continues to explore additional sustainable practices. Some energy-saving initiatives include motion sensors with LED lights and occupancy sensor thermostats in all guest rooms, to prevent any energy or gas usage when guests are not in their room. Environmental responsibilities include using non-toxic and bio-degradable cleaning products, sustainable purchasing when it comes to paper products, participation in food waste composting with the City of San Diego, and a water reclamation system in the hotel's laundry department which reclaims 70 percent of water and filters it for reuse.
