As part of our company’s vision, the Colonel Butler Inn is committed to being a green hotel. A green, or eco-friendly, hotel is one that considers environmental aspects in all areas of operations including building management, guest services, and dining.
We have taken a number of environmentally conscious steps to become more sustainable and lessen our carbon footprint. We will be implementing even more initiatives in our ongoing efforts in being an eco-friendly hotel. Currently, we have a 3-key environmental rating by Green Key.
And if you know of any other environmental initiatives that we could implement, please don’t hesitate to email us to let us know!
