Our Green Attribute Rating System

Our 30 point green attribute rating system covers everything from air quality, environmental education, energy conservation, and eco-friendly food to solid waste reduction, towel and sheet programs and water conservation. Some of the 30 green attributes are more visible, like recycling bins in the guest rooms and hotel lobbies. Others are less visible, like being active and responsible in the community by donating to environmental charities or providing environmental education to hotel staff and guests. In order to be listed on EnvironmentallyFriendlyHotels.com, a hotel must include at least 10 of these green attributes. The more green attributes a hotel possesses, the higher our "green leaf" rating for that hotel.


Ways to Search Our Green Hotel Database

The most basic way to search is to enter your destination or a specific property name in the Green Hotel Search box located on all the pages. If you're traveling to a specific city and want to see all the green hotels in that location, this is a great way to search. Or if you have a specific hotel in mind, this will let you quickly find it.

The "Advanced Search" lets you get really specific in what you're looking for. You can search for the greenest of the green hotels by selecting hotels that have at least a 5 or 6 green leaf rating. Or, say you have allergies or prefer to eat organic food or like the idea of a hotel that provides the option of reusing towels and sheets for additional days. Simply select what's important to you and click "advanced search".
