Hilton to Open Net Zero Hotel

Hotel Marcel New Haven joins the Hilton family under the Tapestry Collection and is believed to be the first net zero emissions hotel in the U.S. 

The hotel will utilize renewable solar power sources on-site to generate the electricity needed for its common areas, restaurant, laundry, meeting rooms and 165 guest rooms and suites. The all-electric hotel will open on May 19, 2022.

The building features a power-over-ethernet lighting system that reduces lighting energy use by more than 30% and extensive upgrades to enhance interior temperature control and air quality, resulting in the building using significantly less energy per square foot than most hotels. Guests have the convenience of 12 Tesla Superchargers or universal level-two chargers for their electric vehicles.

The onsite American restaurant and lounge BLDG  kitchen and laundry room run on electricity instead of natural gas. 

“Hotel Marcel New Haven is a major milestone for the Tapestry Collection by Hilton brand as the first anticipated net-zero hotel in the U.S.,” said Jenna Hackett, global brand head, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, in a statement. “Each Tapestry Collection property displays an original style and personality while also encouraging guests to explore local destinations.”
