Here at The Refinishing Touch, our production team has implemented our award-winning furniture asset management services in the hospitality industry all across the globe. Our sustainable renovation work – which includes on-site refinishing, reupholstering and remanufacturing – has been utilized by the Marriott Charlotte City Center, the PGA National Resort & Spa, the DoubleTree Hilton in Anaheim and many others.
Environmental consciousness remains a key component to our business, as well as the various hoteliers we work with. To commemorate such sustainable efforts, The Refinishing Touch will be running a three part blog series over the next two weeks, each spotlighting a different hotel brand that is currently making moves to become a greener establishment.
Just recently, the new TownePlace Suites located in Denver Airport at Gateway Park opened with a silver LEED ranking, proving that the Marriott brand’s commitment to ‘going green’ has become a core component of the corporate mission. The LEED-certified building is making history, becoming the first of the TownePlace Suites ever to be built with such a ranking.
Marriott executives have decided to pursue a LEED-certified line of locations because of consumer reports indicating hotel sustainability, along with environmental responsibility, is an important factor to guests when deciding which hotel to book. Other Marriott brands in the LEED program include the Courtyard, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites and Fairfield Inn & Suites.
In addition, the LEED building will generate a long-term cost reduction for Marriott, adding a bonus to its bottom line – much like our furniture asset management services, which save our clients up to 80 percent in budget costs when compared to buying new.
