Seattle Eco-Friendly Hotel . . . Feel the Difference

A symbol of green hospitality in the Emerald City, one of the greenest metros in the country, the Sheraton Seattle is an eco-friendly hotel in downtown Seattle, Washington, where being green is more than a choice; it's who we are. Through water and energy conservation, recycling and innovative eco-friendly practices, this Seattle green hotel is dedicated to preserving and sustaining the Seattle community and Mother Earth. From farm-fresh cuisine to cleaning green, we help Seattle lead the nation in recycling, clean drinking water and reduction of climate changing pollution. Welcoming travelers while conserving the Earth makes us feel good!

In 2009, Starwood launched 30/20 by 20, an environmental initiative designed to reduce energy use by 30% and water consumption by 20% by 2020. Since 2008, the Sheraton Seattle has reduced energy usage by 24.3% and water usage by 4.98%. We have received the Green Seal Silver designation in 2013 which was recently renewed in 2015! 

Sheraton Seattle also plays an active role in the Seattle 2030 District, a high-performance building district in downtown Seattle that strives to dramatically reduce environmental impacts through education and collaboration across every sector of the built environment.

Seattle Green Hotel - Composting

Recycling and Composting - Implemented in 1993, Sheraton Seattle's recycling program is the green thumb of our hotel's eco-friendly practices. Each department contains designated receptacles to collect recycled materials such as paper, plastic, cardboard, glass, aluminum, fluorescent light bulbs, toner cartridges, oil, batteries and pallets. Composting bins are located in our employee cafeteria, Daily Grill restaurant and culinary, banquet and room service departments.

Seattle Green Hotel - Recycle

Energy & Water Conservation - The Sheraton Seattle saves water by using efficient low flow toilets, 1.5gpm sink faucet aerators and 2.5gpm shower heads in our guestrooms. We save 480,000 watts of electricity with the hotel's instantaneous steam-to-water heat exchanger. This highly efficient "MAC" system significantly reduces our carbon footprint.

Seattle Green Hotel - Lightbulb

Lights Out On Waste - The entire Sheraton Seattle Hotel is outfitted with compact florescent bulbs and our meeting rooms feature motion censored lights. With over 75,000 square feet of meeting space, our eco-friendly Seattle hotel saves a lot of energy. Energy is conserved in guest rooms through daily light and air conditioning inspections, and security lights are on timers. The hotel also features a Building Automation System that allows for the energy efficient operation of the hotel's HVAC system.

Seattle Green Hotel - Green Cleaning

Environmental Sustainability: Green Cleaning - To reduce our impact on Mother Earth, Sheraton Seattle guestrooms are cleaned with green products composed of a green chemical composition. These products are concentrated and dispensed through small containers that save energy by reducing the need for packaging, shipping and storing. Water is saved with a dilution controlled dispensing system that ensures proper mix of chemicals and reduces landfill waste up to 80% over a traditional container.

Green Meetings at Sheraton Seattle

Meeting & Eating Green - As an alternative to bottled water at your meetings, our Seattle hotel provides water bubblers to reduce plastic waste. Meeting planners can provide a logo'd conference water bottle at event registration, inviting groups to meet greener! Eating at your meeting can be green with sustainable banquet menus for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and refreshment breaks. Sustainably grown ingredients from local and regional farming and managed fishing are free of growth hormones, toxic pesticides and fertilizers.

Seattle Green Hotel - Make a Green Choice Guests Go Greener For Mother Earth - We invite guests to go greener. Each room has an opt-in linen and towel replacement program that reduces the amount of water, chlorine, and detergents used in the cleaning process. You can choose to decline housekeeping service by hanging a "Make a Green Choice" card by 2pm to reduce energy, water and chemical consumption. In return for going green, guests receive a $5 gift card or 500 SPG points for each day they participate. The gift card can be used for the Daily Grill Restaurant, Lobby Lounge, in-room dining and our coffee bar. Learn More.
