60 Renaissance Hotels & Resorts in North America Offer Free Parking to Guests Driving Hybrid Cars
(301) 380-8257
WashingtonDC  -  17 July 2006 - 

Renaissance Hotels & Resorts is making it easier for travelers to be “green” and save some green, by offering complimentary parking to all guests who drive hybrid cars.  Current hybrid cars can get up to 60 miles to the gallon and have lower greenhouse gas emissions.  Effective now through December 31, 2006, guests staying, attending a meeting or dining in the restaurant at a participating Renaissance can park their hybrid for free.

“We think this is a fun and constructive offer to our guests who are helping the environment by driving hybrid vehicles,” said Hank Biddle, senior vice president, Renaissance Hotels & Resorts North America.  “Our hotels are finding new ways to conserve energy, and this is a unique way to involve the customer.”

Renaissance Hotels and Resorts is a sophisticated, upscale brand of Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE:MAR), which has been named by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year for implementing programs that save more than 83 million kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electric energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 68,000 tons annually. Marriott is the only lodging company to be recognized and the only company to receive the EPA’s highest honor for two consecutive years.
