Marriott San Juan gives guests the option to go green

More hotels are getting into the green travel craze, and it’s paying off for travelers. The San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino recently introduced a new conserve and win initiative for its guests – go green and earn points toward Marriott nights.

The concept is simple: forgo housekeeping services and the hotel will award you 500 Marriott Reward points for each night. Housekeeping will continue to replenish amenities including shampoos, conditioners, soap and towels, as needed. However, a full cleaning including linen changes is the guest’s responsibility under this new program.

Marriott’s “Opt Out and Earn” program means guests can help the hotel conserve water and electricity by reducing the cleaning products the housekeeping staff uses daily. The hotel has been working on green initiatives for a while, including adding recycling bins in guest rooms and the new Green Key 1000-5000 Microbial Food Digestor, which converts all solid organic material into grey water.

Seems making your bed has its rewards with Marriott.

We want to hear from you: Would you choose to eliminate daily housekeeping during your hotel stay to help with greener travel initiatives?
