Our green initiatives include LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council featuring many environmentally friendly resources.

In an effort to conserve resources, create an environmentally friendly workplace, and reflect the needs of today’s world, our 150-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton hotel located in Downtown Owensboro, has undertaken a sustainability policy for the benefit of our guests, our team members, our business partners and our community.

Enjoy our Electric Vehicle [EV] charging station in our parking lot, available 24 hours a day, at no additional charge to our guests. Charges do apply for non-guests. Please ask our friendly front desk staff for details.

We make a sincere effort to implement our green features discussed below, and incorporate environmentally friendly practices into our daily operations. We celebrate the current green initiatives already in place, and look toward even more innovative, eco-friendly practices for the future

We celebrate our Owensboro Downtown Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton hotel being the first new LEED-certified hotel in Kentucky, and downtown’s tallest building. Our hotel features the same number of stories as the former Executive Inn Rivermont’s central tower, where once it stood. Our sustainability initiatives include:

  • Clean the World Foundation - program that recycles all unused soap and shampoo products discarded by the hospitality industry every day. Through the distribution of these and other donated hygiene products to our domestic homeless and international impoverished population, millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses can be prevented each day.
  • EV Car Charging Station - we encourage our guests to drive their Electric Cars when staying at our hotel. Our guests can charge their EV at no additional cost. Electric Cars offer a significant reduction of local air pollution. They help to eliminate tailpipe pollutants leading to a large reduction in total greenhouse gas and other emissions. Therefore, making us less dependent on foreign oil.
  • Geothermal Heating & Cooling - powered by the sun's energy, our Geothermal system is highly efficient increasing our energy efficiency ratings by 400-500%. Geothermal energy is considered extremely safe since there is no combustion and does not require the burning of fossil fuels to operate positively impacting the environment. They demonstrate increased air purification and dehumidification versus conventional systems. In addition to improved air quality, geothermal systems keep indoor air temperatures at consistent levels, eliminating hot and cold spots that are typical of all conventional systems. According to the United States Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool any environment. They do not emit greenhouse gasses, which are known to contribute to environmental air pollution.
  • Solar Panels - the sun provides a tremendous resource for generating clean and sustainable electricity without toxic pollution or global warming emissions. Our Solar Panels offer zero global warming emissions associated with generating electricity from solar energy.
  • LED lighting - the electricity consumption over an equivalent period of lighting service is far greater than any other lamp, and is the dominant contributor to environmental impacts. LED lamps are expected to be about 70% lower than the CFL. The LED extended product lifetime reduces the amount of resources to be produced, packaged, and transported. Therefore, LED lighting eventually reduces the waste disposed in landfills.
  • Living "Green" Roof - covered with soil and plants to conserve energy, reduce energy consumption and ultimately keep storm water out of the drainage system.
  • All energy sources have some impact on our environment. Fossil fuels do substantially more harm than renewable energy sources by most measures, including air and water pollution, damage to public health, wildlife and habitat loss, water use, land use, and global warming emissions. ~ Union of Concerned Scientists
