An Innovative Toronto Green Hotel

Our eco friendly property has shown national industry leadership and commitment to protecting the environment through wide ranging environmentally friendly hotel policies and practices. Mature programs that involve management, employees, guests, and the public have shown substantial and measurable results. We do a number of things to maintain our role as an eco friendly hotel from growing our own rooftop herb garden to programs that reduce water and electricity usage to paperless meetings.

Eco Friendly Practices

  • Recycling bins in each room, shredder upon request
  • Donate gently used linens to our hotel charity
  • Use of timers and dimmers to reduce electricity
  • Extensive composting and recycling
  • Aeration to reduce water consumption
  • Rooftop garden for herbs keeps us local
  • Biodegradable take-out containers, if needed
  • Paperless airline check-in in lobby
  • Organic Menu, when possible local
  • Plastic free and non-disposable containers
  • Selection of naturally flavoured spa waters, no plastic
  • Recycled meeting pads and compost friendly pens
