The creature comforts in my room included one of those individual-serving coffee machines with disposable coffee cups that seem to be so popular these days. It often makes it hard for me to make coffee into my stainless steel mug, but I do find a way. There was also individual climate control, meaning I could keep a moderate temperature in my room and not waste energy. My bed was piled with pillows, letting me choose the right size for my good night's sleep and giving me good back support when I watched TV (a 48" LCD TV energy hog)in bed.
While there were individual toiletries instead of bulk ones, they at least were Nutrogena so not too stinky or harsh. Glasses were refreshed from the housekeeping cart, making me feel good about their cleanliness. The lack of robe didn't bother me, though it seems un-Hilton like, but environmentally sound by saving the laundering efforts and expenses.
The most exciting green action I found in the hotel was the combined trash and recycling bin! One lovely wooden container that had two plastic bins -- one for trash and the other for recyclables. There's hope for the hotel industry with this device.
This website is for you and your fellow green travelers. You can make it more useful by sharing your travel experiences at the different environmentally friendly hotels or eco-lodges you stay in. The more comments and reviews we have on the hotels in the database, the more you and other environmentally conscious travelers have to go on for making decisions.
When you review a hotel, the information we are looking for is what your experience was; how you felt about what you saw and did in regards to the hotel. Did you notice any environmentally sensitive steps taken that aren't covered by either the attributes list or the hotel's website? For example, were the shower curtains fabric rather than plastic, the wastebasket unlined, or did the room smell fresh without having been perfumed? Does the housekeeping staff honor the towel/sheet program? Are Styrofoam products offered at any food establishments connected to the environmentally friendly hotel? We want the good and the bad so other green travelers can make informed decisions.
There are lots of little things that go into making a great experience, and lots of little things that go into making a great green experience. That's what we are looking for in the reviews we receive. All comments and submissions become the property of HealthyStays.com, LLC and may be published.
