Hampton Inn and Suites
View Full Case Study
The Residence Inn Gainesville I-75 opened August 7th, 2009, as a fully environmentally sound facility. Located on the site of an EPA "brownfield," the once-polluted land has been restored to pristine condition. Additionally, the site was xeriscaped to save water, and features all native plants, minimal turf areas, perforated pavement (to aid irrigation / preserve water), a water-saving irrigation system using gray water, and a nature walking trail. OTO bonded a 100+ year live oak to ensure its survival, as well; the tree anchors the development, and is celebrated by staff & guests alike.

"I am proud to be a part of such a great project. OTO has always incorporated environmental and sustainable efforts into the design of our hotels, but this particular site gave us some unique opportunities. I'm looking forward to offering Gainesville an opportunity to participate in our green efforts."
