Vail Valley’s Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa On Track
to Achieve Colorado’s
First Resort LEED Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council
|AVON, Colo. – November 2007 – The Westin Riverfront Resort
& Spa, Vail Valley’s newest luxury resort scheduled to open next summer,
is doing everything possible to be sensitive to the environment and “go
green” for guests. Situated on a magnificent 19-acre site bordering
the Eagle River at the base of Beaver Creek Mountain, the property has
brought sustainability to new heights with the ultimate in public transportation:
its own Riverfront Gondola that brings guests to the ski area.
“We are building this hotel from the ‘green up’,” said Bob Trotter,
general manager of The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa. “The new
gondola literally at our doorstep is the cornerstone of our eco-friendly
philosophy. Taking an environmentally sensitive approach to development
and operation will improve our guest experience in every way.”
From the construction materials to hotel operations, the property is committed to being true to its Beaver Creek Mountain setting through low-impact approaches that are respectful of both the environment and the community. The property is on track to achieve Colorado’s first resort LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council when it opens next summer.
Here’s how everyone will benefit from their green approach:
