  • A towel and linen reuse program.
  • Extensive use of perennial plants and a drip water irrigation system for landscaping.
  • The installation of low-flow water devices as rooms are updated.

  • Donating or repurposing used furnishings when rooms are updated.
  • Using cloth napkins and reusable dinnerware with meals and reusable glasses in guest rooms.
