Thanks to Glenn Hasek at Green Lodging News for this story….
The Sheraton Seattle and Sheraton Kauai Resort launched a pilot program called “You Tidy, We Treat.” Now known as “Make a Green Choice,” it gives guests the option of not only opting out of towel and linen replacement but also all housekeeping for a day.
Guests can choose to participate in the program for one night or up to three nights at a time during their stay. To participate, guests must hang a “Make a Green Choice” card outside their guestroom door before 2 a.m. Guests are not eligible for the program the night before checking out of the room. For each night they participate, guests are given a $5 gift card to use at any of the hotel’s restaurants. Guests also have the option of receiving 500 Starpoints as part of Starwood’s loyalty program.
I would happily take a $5 gift card for a service I don’t really need while traveling. Another example of a green idea which also saves hotel labor and makes customers happy!
