Habitat Suites Rooftop solar panels, organic gardens and salt water pool in the courtyard. EcoRooms and EcoSuites Certified

ecorooms ecocertifiedWhen Habitat Suites Hotel opened in 1985, it had not been designed or built with ecological considerations in mind. Thus, we have adopted innovative ways throughout our history to become recognized as an ecologically responsible hotel--one that fosters a healthy environment for guests, employees, and wildlife while seeking to minimize our impact upon the earth and its resources. In 1991, we became a charter member of the Green Hotels Association--long before it was popular to be 'green.'  Although we have already won many awards for our environmental track record, we will not rest on our laurels but will endeavor to lead the way in sustainable, responsible business practices.
