US: Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center Hotel in Texas has been designed and built to achieve LEED Gold Certification.

If approved, the property, which opened last month, would be the first Embassy Suites to achieve LEED Gold Certification. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable design. Located near the University of North Texas (UNT), the property features 1,000 solar panels.

It features 318 guest rooms, lobby, ballrooms and conference rooms, indoor pool, bar and restaurant, as well as the 70,000-square-foot convention centre.

The interiors were designed by award-winning boutique Dallas firm, MatchLine Design Group.
In keeping with the LEED Gold Certification standards, MatchLine Design Group integrated sustainable interior products, where possible, including recycled glass countertops at the registration desk and dining table tops made from SFI-certified wood chips.

A gallery wall showcases work by local artists and students from UNT with future rotating exhibitions.
