The Hilton Asheville at Biltmore Park Town Square Goes "Solar"

ASHEVILLE, NC – Warm weather, sunny evenings, vacations, and open windows are all aspects of summer that we are eagerly anticipating. As cabin fever sets in, we can add one more summer excitement to our list: The Hilton Asheville at Biltmore Park Town Square.

The new Hilton at Biltmore Park Town Square will be far more than a hotel and conference center; it will also be a leader in sustainable design, setting new standards for environmental consciousness and green building practices. At Biltmore Park Town Square, the buildings are more than just locations for premier condos, apartments, townhomes, retailers and offices–they are a way of life.

The Hilton Asheville, in tune with the community’s focus on quality of life, is the first Hilton hotel to utilize a large-scale solar hot water system, and it will be the largest system in the Western North Carolina region to date. The solar panels will provide 2,000 gallons of hot water to the hotel every day, and it will eliminate 60 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year. As a complement to the solar water system, all guest and public rooms will feature low-flow toilets, shower heads, and sink fixtures, reducing normal water usage by up to 30%. The steps that the Hilton is taking to provide its guests with the highest quality and healthiest experience possible will also culminate in the equivalent of planting 18,000 trees a year.

The Hilton’s green design is further supported by its location. With residential, retail, and office space all within walking distance, guests at the Hilton have everything they need for business, dining, health, and recreation in an arm’s reach, which reduces pollution from frequent driving.

hotel will also feature a shuttle service, recycling program, environmentally-friendly cleaning products, and local services. Biltmore Park Town Square is where going green meets luxury, and the Hilton strives to be the epitome of both. For an unparalleled hotel experience or an idyllic event venue, consider the Hilton Asheville, where you will receive unbeatable service and experience a new quality of life.
