During the same business trip which allowed me to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Olathe, KS (see blog post here)
I was able to arrange a stay at another hotel which had installed Enerworks Inc. solar hot water panels (also built by Heart of America Group – http://www.heartofamericagroup.com/). This hotel brand was a Holiday Inn & Suites situated in the trendy new developments in East Peoria.
This hotel uses many of the same energy saving features used at the Hilton Garden Inn, Olathe KS and I found a news article which details how these features make this hotel stand out with a competitive edge in a very competitive market (http://www.pjstar.com/article/20140427/NEWS/140429299/1994/NEWS?utm_content=bufferf1c64&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer).
If you’re traveling in the Peoria Illinois, area make sure to look up the Holiday Inn & Suites for your travel needs. It’s got a full restaurant, indoor pool, conference facilities and surpasses any other Holiday Inn’s I’ve stayed at in recent memory.
