What a great all-round experience! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and dedicated to Kimpton's earthcare program.

The hotel's commitment to the environment is quite evident. Kimpton Hotels, the owner of Cypress Hotel, provides brochures & pamphlets in the room which describe their day-to-day efforts to be part of the solution instead a contributor to the problem. All hotel collateral is printed on recycled paper with soy-based inks.

They have recycling trash bins in the room for bottles, cans & paper, they use earth-friendly cleaning products & provide L'Occitane bath products in each room. They do not use plastic trash liners, have a towel & linen program and keep your newspaper preferences on file to reduce waste. The disposable cups they use are 30% post-consumer recyclable.

There is a shuttle service for transportation to San Jose International Airport. There is also a shuttle service to nearby business campuses.

Despite the fact that they use regular light bulbs, one of their managers assured me that they are in the process of replacing all of their light bulbs with compact fluorescent lighting.

The hotel donates used bath amenities, towels & linens to local shelters. They regularly fiend other ways to contribute to the community as well.

What a great stay at a great hotel!

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, LLC and may be published.
