20160624_GreystoneHotels_CreeksideInn-53

Eric Horodas, president and CEO of Greystone Hotels, recently discussed the company’s present and future green initiatives and sustainability programs with Hotel News Now. As a leader in sustainable hospitality, Greystone Hotels maintains extremely valuable partnerships with eco-friendly organizations and continues to commit to these programs across all 11 hotels. Clean the World allows every hotel property to recycle bath amenities, which are then distributed to those in need. With these same properties converting to key-less entry and providing a bedside tablet through KEYPR, it reduces the production and waste of plastic key cards, printed in-room collateral and printed newspapers. Greystone has also partnered with Tesla Motors to continue installing electric car-charging stations at all properties that have parking lots, which are mostly suburban hotels.
