How We're Green!
From green roof to pervious pavers – what makes our hotel green?
A 30-foot tall grain silo in our courtyard that was once used as a beer storage tank. Today, the silo captures rainwater runoff that is recycled and used for the hotel's landscape irrigation.
- Also in the courtyard: pervious flooring, with pavers and turf made of recycled tires that allow rainwater to return to the earth.
- Appliances and fixtures that reduce energy, waste and water usage.
- A green roof, which insulates the building while reducing the radiant heat and reduces the volume of storm water flowing into streams and drainage channels.
- Fragrance-free, all-natural, biodegradable cleaning products and laundering.
- Smoke-free throughout the hotel.
- A zero-carbon footprint, achieved by purchasing wind-sourced, renewable energy credits.
- Alternative transportation for both guests and associates by having bike racks and supplying bicycles in our Eco Suites
