From the moment you walk through the doors, it is clear that The Renaissance Arlington at Capital View is anything but an average place to stay in the Crystal City. This luxury hotel in Arlington, Virginia is nothing short of luminous, ranked among the top hotels in the area for service. But there is much more to this hotel than meets the eye.
This year, members of the Air Cycle team were able to travel to the Virginia Green Travel Conference, where The Renaissance Arlington at Capital View received the Star Award as the Green Hotel of the Year for their ongoing sustainability efforts.
Virginia Green is a statewide initiative to encourage sustainable practices throughout Virginia’s tourism industry through recycling, waste eduction, and energy and water conservation. Members of this prestigious organization instill programs to address their environmental impacts, and in return, consumer do their part by choosing green hotels, attractions, and more.
This award was more than well deserved. The Renaissance Arlington is an LEED certified hotel, boasting award-winning architecture and incredible city views in a building that is resource efficient, using less water and energy and therefore reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Guests can take advantage of a variety of environmentally conscious solutions throughout the hotel, like Tesla Motors electric charging stations.
Once more, we’re proud to say that Renaissance by Marriott is a proud partner of Air Cycle Corporation, utilizing our sustainability innovations to manage their Universal Waste recycling. Industry leaders like The Renaissance Arlington are making it easier for consumers to make educated decisions, choosing companies who make environmentally conscious decisions and utilize every sustainability solution at their disposal.
Thank you to Virginia Green Travel for encouraging and recognizing organizations throughout the state who continue to use green practices, and thank you to the Renaissance Arlington at Capital View for creating a hotel experience just as simply sustainable as it is luxurious.
