Hampton Inn

The Hampton Inn & Suites Brickell-Downtown is now Miami’s first LEED-certified hotel, following its award of LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The 15-story, 221-room property is located at 50 SW 12th Street in Brickell. “The hotel industry has historically trailed other sectors when it comes to emphasizing sustainability, largely due to excessive energy and water usage,” said Bernard Wolfson, president of hotel owner Hospitality Operations. “We are overcoming these obstacles at the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown by embracing the green features that conserve resources, appeal to eco-conscious guests and reduce our operating costs.” — Alexander Britell
