The following are examples of some of our ongoing efforts:
A "Green Roof" was installed on the building to decrease heating and cooling costs and to help maximize energy efficiency.
Efficient Purchasing of Natural Resources:
Our Boston Hotel utilizes a Bi-fuel Converter, allowing the most efficient natural resource to be purchased for Hotel energy.
Recycling and Using Recyclable Products:
Our Hotel recycles cardboard, aluminum & office paper and purchases recycled and recyclable products whenever possible.
Hotel Linen & Towel Reuse Program:
Guests have the option to reuse their linens and towels in order to conserve natural resources.
The Hotel is located 1 block from both Subway and Bus Transportation and is within walking distance of many Boston Restaurants, Boston Shopping & Boston Attractions, eliminating the need to drive.
Guest Room and Meeting Room Energy Management System:
The Boston Park Plaza Hotel employs a state-of-the-art energy management system that detects when a Guest room or public meeting room is vacant and turns off heating and air conditioning. The system also detects when an occupied room is vacant and sets it to room temperature.
Food & Beverage:
The Boston Park Plaza Hotel composts biodegradable organic food waste, recycles all kitchen oils, and uses bulk dispensers & reusable containers for beverages, food and condiments. The Hotel also uses reusable serving utensils, napkins and tablecloths when food and beverages are served.
The laundry department employs a water reuse system which allows water to be cleaned and used 3 times before being disposed.
In an effort to save paper, our Boston Hotel employs a paperless check-in/check-out policy. Additionally, Guests have a choice to receive daily complimentary newspaper delivery if desired.
Employees are trained extensively on ways in which they can help with conservation.
Compact Fluorescent Lighting is used.
