Reviews

This was a lovely hotel and was renovating several floors, something they didn't tell guests about -- not good for those who are chemically sensitive, though we found the carpet and paint to be low VOC so weren't impacted too much. We enjoyed our lanai, though we could see the ocean from it we also found ourselves overlooking a service entrance.

There were good and bad things about the hotel. We didn't like the fact there was only one switch for the sink and bath areas, though they were two separate rooms, but we liked the wooden hangars, TV and fridge. The shower curtain was made of cloth but the liner was vinyl. We had a spacious room so weren't bumping into each other.

The energy management system turned off the AC when we opened the lanai door, saving lots of energy. We had our door open lots. There was an interesting window covering for the sliding door -- a sliding louvered door. It was great for letting fresh air in and maintaining privacy, but lousy for any room darkening aspects making it hard to sleep in late.

Not the greenest hotel we've ever stayed in, but not the worst either.

Review this hotel

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.
