About nine months ago, Green Lodging News published the winners of the American Hotel & Lodging Assn. (AH&LA) Achievement Awards, part of the annual Stars of the Industry Awards. As in previous years, AH&LA presented awards in a Good Earthkeeping category. Last year’s winners included: The Huntington Hotel, San Francisco, small property category; Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, medium property category; and Grand Hyatt Atlanta, large property category. AH&LA just announced that it is accepting nominations for its 2015 Stars of the Industry Awards program. Once again, there will be a Good Earthkeeping category this year but AH&LA has trimmed the number of winners to just two. There will be a small property category (250 rooms or less) and a large property category (250 rooms or more). If you are fortunate enough to have exactly 250 rooms in your property, you will have to decide which category to be considered for.
