Hotel Near Denver Airport Embraces Cleaner, Greener Transportation

At the TownePlace Suites Denver Airport at Gateway Park, the Setting Isn't the Only Thing That's Electric

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - When it comes to environmental responsibility, every little bit counts. From low-flow water fixtures, to VOC-free paint, the options for going green are as numerous as the variations of the shade itself. But at TownePlace Suites Denver Airport at Gateway Park, eco-friendliness is a way of life, thanks to its exclusive LEED status and its exciting new partnership with the green giant of airport shuttle services.

Where guests of these Denver International Airport hotel suites might have once been forced to board a rumbling van belching out carcinogenic smoke just to get to the terminal, they are instead greeted by something altogether cleaner, quieter and more appealing. In a project spearheaded by Arapahoe Development, LLC, the 10-bus fleet with which the hotel is partnering introduced its two new electric buses in September 2013 and plans to convert the remaining eight diesel-fueled machines to electric buses next year.

Not only are these new shuttles lean, mean green machines, they are also reliable. As a Denver, Colorado hotel near the airport, the property must facilitate regular transportation back and forth for the comfort and convenience of its guests. Accordingly, visitors can access the shuttles 24-hours a day at 20-minute intervals.

Of course, considering that this extended-stay hotel offers guests complimentary breakfast and Internet access, three floor plans and spacious suites that include separate living and sleeping areas as well as fully-equipped kitchens, no one will be in a hurry to get to the airport. Plus all the highlights of Denver, Colorado -- from parks, to the zoo, to shopping and galleries -- are just a short drive away.

In a testament to its commitment to ecological responsibility, the hotel has joined forces with four other Gateway Park hotels in Denver, CO to commit to the necessary $3-million-per-year budget that facilitates the electric- and diesel-bus shuttle service. The ensuing "Airport Green District" is just one more powerful message that green is the color of the future.
