TOBERMORY, ONTARIO—With its six suites, the E’Terra Inn here serves as one of the best examples of sustainable building in Canada and the United States. Most of the products and materials used throughout the inn were made in North America.
BEREA, KENTUCKY—It was in 1909 that Berea College, located here, first opened the Boone Tavern Hotel. Next year, 100 years after its opening, the college intends to reopen the hotel as a green property and will pursue LEED certification.
KINGSTON, ONTARIO—Bill Allinson, one of the owners of the Confederation Place Hotel here, was skeptical at first when approached several years ago about installing a $52,000 rooftop solar water heating system. Today, he is sold on solar.
UNITY VILLAGE, MO.—The Unity Village Hotel and Conference Center, which opened January 2007, recently received LEED Silver certification from the Washington, D.C.-based United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
OLD SAYBROOK, CONN.—Situated on the site of one of New England’s first settlements (1623), the Energy Star rated Saybrook Point Inn & Spa is a champion of energy conservation and environmental protection.
MIAMI—One would not expect a property’s environmental champion to come out of the security department but that is what has happened at the 221-room Four Seasons Hotel Miami.
TRUCKEE, CALIF.—Located more than a mile high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains about 200 miles northeast of San Francisco, the Cedar House Sport Hotel has been very well received since it opened in mid-2006.
LAKE PLACID, N.Y.—Next spring will be an exciting time here at the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort. Up on the roof, just between the main lobby and the restaurant, a green roof will be installed.
BOULDER, COLO.—If you would like to learn about the Boulder Outlook Hotel & Suites’ zero waste program, I suggest checking with the property’s Ambassador of Cool (owner Dan King), or maybe its Green Goddess (Diane Schevene).
BOSTON—On September 1, the 225-room Jurys Boston Hotel will do what few other hotel properties in the United States have done—offset 100 percent of its electricity consumption.
