Sedona Green Hotel
Sedona Arizona’s Kings Ransom Inn, surrounded by the majestic red rocks of Sedona, is doing their share to protect the environment, thanks to a host of environmentally enhanced products from Green Suites® International, an environmental product and program supplier to the lodging industry.
On December 1st, 2009, Sedona’s Kings Ransom Inn launched the "EcoRoom® Accommodation Program" converting each of their 53 guestrooms into healthier, more environmental "EcoRooms." They are the first property in the area to do so. The guestrooms will now feature more than a dozen environmental products including compact fluorescent light bulbs; water efficient showerheads and sink faucets; L.E.D. nightlights (according to a study at Livermore Laboratories, 40% of all travelers leave bathroom lights on as nightlights); non-toxic cleaning chemicals; a linen reuse program; and Natura brand liquid soaps, lotions and shampoo products offered in shower and vanity dispensers. Each dispenser states that use of it may "eliminate over 1000 amenity packages a year from entering our landfills," adding that the liquid products are biodegradable, hypoallergenic and not animal tested.
The EcoRoom® Accommodation Program crowns another step in a series of environmental initiatives by the Kings Ransom Inn. Sedona’s Kings Ransom Inn prides itself in being a non-smoking hotel and uses recycled office supplies such as ink toner and printer paper. In addition, all cardboard packaging, cans and bottles for both the hotel and their restaurant, Elote Café, are recycled. Individual recycle bins are placed in each room to encourage guests to do the same.
Amy Bertorelli, President of the Kings Ransom Inn, knows that going green will not only benefit her property but also the community and her guests. “We believe it is vitally important for individuals and businesses to be mindful of our planet’s health and contribute to sustaining that health by implementing Green practices daily. Our website, kingsransominn.com offers the following welcome: Be Prepared to take in Breathtaking Beauty that Fills the Senses and Feeds the Soul. The Kings Ransom Inn endeavors to fulfill this promise to our guests by providing green environmentally-friendly accommodations which will enhance their experience and fulfill their expectations. At the same time, our guests have an opportunity to contribute to this effort! We know people who visit Sedona enjoy a pristine environment and will want to leave it that way!”.
Dan Bornholdt, President of Green Suites® International estimates that the Kings Ransom Inn will save 30 percent to 70 percent on the cost of amenities, 20 percent to 40 percent on water, 30 percent to 70 percent of energy, 10 percent on waste and 10 percent on labor. He bases these numbers on the 3000 hotels they have supplied in the company's 16 year history.
Due to their participation in the EcoRoom® Accommodation Program, Sedona’s Kings Ransom Inn has also received a 4-leaf rating as part of the Green Suites® Green Hotel Certification Program. This program aims to recognize hotels for the positive green initiatives they've performed, while simultaneously challenging the hotels' competitors to step up their environmental performance.
In an era when environmental consciousness is increasing in response to greater demands on our environment, green initiatives are vital to maintaining social responsibility in all industries, and the hospitality sector is no exception. As a Green Suites® Certified Green Hotel, the Kings Ransom Inn is ahead of the curve in recognizing this and putting green values into practice.
