-- Hilton Washington Dulles Airport is proud to announce that their team has elected to participate in Virginia's Adopt-A-Highway program, and will be maintaining a 2 mile stretch of road near the hotel. The hotel's volunteers have committed to a minimum of 3 cleanups per year for a 3 year period. The decision to volunteer locally was rooted in the employees' pride in the neighborhood and wanting guests and staff to be able to appreciate their efforts to maintain the beauty of the community.
Community service is a key part of Hilton Hotels & Resorts' Blue Energy initiative, with the goals of creating opportunities, strengthening communities and preserving the environment. The Hotel's first cleanup will take place in August. The Adopt-a-Highway program provides an opportunity for families, businesses or civic groups to clean up litter. Participants will be recognized for their efforts with a sign after the completion of the first 2 clean ups.
Each year, nearly 17,000 Adopt-a-Highway volunteers collect more than 25,000 bags of waste along Virginia's highways, and it is estimated that this program saves over $1.5 million that would have otherwise gone to clean up Virginia's roads.
The Hilton Washington Dulles Airport hotel is located just three miles from Dulles International Airport (IAD) and 30 minutes from Washington DC. Featuring 449 rooms & suites, 2 full service restaurants and over 40,000 square feet of event space, the hotel was designed with comfort and amenities in mind. All rooms offer sophisticated decor and custom-designed beds, plus flat-screen TVs and WiFi. Executive rooms and suites provide access to the Executive Lounge's free breakfast and evening appetizers. There's a fashionable lounge, a grill, a bistro-style restaurant and a business center, plus over 40,000 sq ft of meeting space. Other amenities include an indoor and outdoor pool, a whirlpool and a fitness center. There's also free parking, plus a complimentary area shuttle.
