Overview

Our commitment to being environmentally conscious extends into every aspect of our hotel. Through a variety of initiatives from Housekeeping practices to sustainable food product choices, we keep sustainability and green efforts as pillars to guide how we operate.

Carbon Emissions and Water

Carbon Emissions and Water

  • Water is served in large carafes during meetings and events to reduce single use plastic bottle consumption. 
  • Daily operation reports are used to effectively schedule heating, cooling and lighting. 
  • Use of high efficiency lighting throughout public and meeting spaces 
  • Use of timers and motion sensors in back of house areas to ensure lights are turned off when necessary 
  • We use Hyatt EcoTrack to monitor sustainability metrics including gas emissions, energy, water, waste, and recycling. 
  • High efficiency laundry machines save on water us

Waste and Circularity
