The Green Key awarded five star hotel in the centre of Milan (Italy) is highly committed to encourage its guests to participate in the hotel’s environmental actions.
As part of the Starwood Hotel Group, The Westin Palace Hotel Milan runs the “Make a Green Choice” programme, where guests staying more than one night at the hotel are encouraged to participate in the conservation of water and energy resources and reduction in use of detergents through declining housekeeping of the guest room. In return, the guests are offered a voucher for use in the hotel restaurant or bonus points in the Starwood Preferred Guest Programme.
In the guest rooms, guests are encouraged to separate waste. To save paper for newspaper production, guests are offered via a “Pressreader App” to download newspapers and magazines during they stay at the hotel. In the restaurant, the guests will have a wide selection of dishes with products that are locally produced in the Lombardia region of Italy. For the coming period, the hotel is planning additional sustainability activities for its guests, including the project of installing a charging station for electric cars.
