The Hilton Quebec is participating in the event "60 EARTH HOUR"

30 mars 2012

The Hilton Quebec is preparing to participate for a fourth consecutive year in the international event "60 EARTH HOUR." This event is intended as a symbolic action for the fight against climate change that will take place in over 135 countries next Saturday, March 31st.  For more information, visit wwf.ca/earthhour/

Following the example of the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building or the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Hilton Quebec will be turning off all non-essential lights and reducing power usage for one hour, between 8:30 and 9:30 pm, local time. To do this, all the hotel staff invites customers to keep their room lights turned off. During this same period, customers will be invited by management to the Earth hour Reception; clients will enjoy a complimentary Earth cocktail and dessert in the lobby and in the Executive lounge on the 23rd floor.

The Hilton Quebec offers an original program in honor of the Earth, as soon as the clients arrive they will experience:

    • Sounds of nature and relaxing music
    • DVD revealing the wonders of the world or climatic disasters
    • Earth Hour Reception

This appointment demonstrates once more the position of Hilton Quebec regarding environmental problems. With its global and ecological action plan commonly called "Go Green", the Hilton Quebec has made radical changes in the management to take the path towards a new mode of consumption, to sustainable tourism development.

An impeccable customer service while respecting the environment?  Yes, at the Hilton Quebec, it is possible!
