Our Focus on Luxury and Sustainability
Designed for sustainability, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown was the proud recipient of the Bronze Green Seal Certification on December 23, 2010, and we’ve recently earned our Silver Certificate as well. We’ve designed our Downtown Pittsburgh accommodations to meet the practical needs of our guests, and we take pride in our approach to creating a green setting that welcomes guests with a warm and inviting atmosphere. “The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown meets Green Seal™ Standard GS-33 based on waste minimization, water and energy efficiency, hazardous substance handling, and an environmental purchasing policy.

Our Green Approach
As part of our commitment to sustainable lodgings, our Downtown Pittsburgh accommodations have eliminated phosphate laundry chemicals, and all of the detergents that we use are biodegradable and safe for the environment. Cold washes and reduced drying times help to save energy and create a greener planet for the future of Pittsburgh and the rest of the country. Our cleaning chemicals are Green Seal GS-33 Compliant, and they have an MSDS rating that is between 0 and 1. We’ve also taken a comprehensive approach to our hotel’s future practices, and since 2011, we’ve reduced our landfill waste by more than 22%. We strive to recycle as much as possible, and we routinely compost food waste from the Bigelow Grille.
A Modern Facility
At DoubleTree, we embrace modern technology and appreciate the way in which new and emerging ideas can help us offer Downtown Pittsburgh accommodations that are luxurious and good for the planet at the same time. We’ve switched all of our light bulbs to energy-efficient Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs), and all of our televisions, coffee makers, hairdryers and irons are among the most energy efficient available. Reducing water consumption is another of our goals. We’ve installed aerators on the guest room faucets, and use gray water for our facility’s sprinkler system and exterior power washing. These measures allow you to stay in a sparkling hotel that refuses to compromise between client comfort and our environment.
Green Comfort and Luxury
We’re attentive to the way in which our actions can influence the planet, and we take pride in offering Downtown Pittsburgh accommodations that are as environmentally responsible as possible. Because we at DoubleTree understand that creating sustainable business practices is a crucial component of the environment’s preservation, we’ve adopted measures in our dining facility, the Bigelow Grille, that give you access to organic foods that are sustainably sourced, healthfully prepared, and full of natural flavor, ensuring that our fare is good for both you and the planet.
