SILVER SPRING, MD.—Choice Hotels International’s announcement that it will require U.S. Econo Lodge hotels to participate in its Room to be Green program should elevate its overall number of Room to be Green participants to approximately 2,000 U.S. hotels by the end of the year. Currently, Room to be Green is an optional program for Choice’s other brands.

Choice hotels that participate in Room to be Green are noted as such on the Choice Hotels site with these words: “Supports Green Practices.” Craig Mustard, head of domestic brand management for Econo Lodge, said the new Econo Lodge mandate was made after visiting with Econo Lodge owners and operators—each part of the Econo Lodge Franchisee Association—to get their feedback. “I was surprised how easy it was,” Mustard says. “I haven’t heard any negative comments.”

Far Beyond ‘Low Hanging Fruit,’ Super 8 Owner’s Investments Pay Off Big Time


MONROE, WIS.—Arthur Bartsch, owner of Wisconsin’s Super 8 of Monroe, has spent the last 15 years trying to figure out how to remove inefficiencies from his 54-room property in Monroe, Wis. He is way past the “low hanging fruit” and well on his way to running one of the greenest lodging establishments in Wisconsin and possibly even the entire United States. The Energy Star rating for the Super 8 of Monroe in 2012, the first year he ran his numbers in the Energy Star Portfolio manager? A 95. That means the hotel, from an energy efficiency standpoint, has been performing better than 95 percent of hotel buildings of similar size. Bartsch says the Super 8 of Monroe is the only Energy Star rated hotel in Wisconsin. One of the first things guests notice about the hotel is its 14-panel solar hot water heating system on its south-facing roof. Eight of the panels pre-heat water for the indoor swimming pool and the remaining six pre-heat water for domestic use.
