CORONADO, CALIF.—The historic Glorietta Bay Inn announced several recent investments in environmental initiatives and sustainable solutions for daily hotel operations. The initiatives include installing a new renewable energy source, implementing a chemical-free cleaning program and introducing a digital application to reduce paper waste across several different hotel departments.
Recently, Glorietta Bay Inn installed more than nine large solar panels to generate its own renewable energy to power lighting, HVAC, heat water and more around the resort. As the first historic hotel in the region to install solar panels, Glorietta Bay Inn looks to significantly reduce its carbon footprint.
Located on Coronado Island, the award-winning hotel also implemented a water-based cleaning program to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals throughout the hotel. The chemical-free cleaning program is a safety trifecta; it’s safer for guests, hotel employees and the environment. Additionally, Glorietta Bay Inn introduced a new paperless processing application that has resulted in a reduction of paper used by hotel staff by 80 percent.

Built in the early 1900s, the mansion of Glorietta Bay Inn was modern and innovative for its time, a legacy the hotel remains committed to today.
