Meet Greener in Irvine

When it comes to being environmentally conscious, Irvine hotels have installed and implemented a variety of energy, gas, water and electric saving devices to minimize the carbon footprint of their clients' meetings and events.

Several Irvine hotels participate in corporate programs and have been recognized for their efforts;

DoubleTree by Hilton Irvine Spectrum Center, Embassy Suites Irvine/Orange County Airport, and Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport, part of Hilton Worldwide, participate in the LightStayTM program. LightStayTM is a sustainability measurement system and brand standard for hotels to improve hotel performance and profitability while decreasing our company's overall impact on the environment.

Embassy Suites Irvine/Orange County Airport has also been recognized as a TripAdvisor® GreenLeader.

Wyndham Worldwide was recently named to four top sustainability leadership indices: the Dow Jones North America and World Sustainability Indices, and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Climate Disclosure and Climate Performance Leadership Indices. The Wyndham Irvine has an energy management system to control all public and meeting space air conditioners; upgraded elevators with high efficiency motors to reduce energy usage; and other gas and electricity saving efforts that provide for a cleaner environment. The hotel received Green Certification by TripAdvisor® and is working to become Green Key Certified in 2015.

In addition, many Irvine hotels have individual green initiatives;

The Atrium Hotel has water efficient low waste designed toilets that use less water and provide the same efficiency as standard toilets. The hotel also practices a food recycling program that eliminates most food waste.

The developers of one of Irvine newest properties, the Courtyard Irvine Spectrum, gave considerable thought into the building's overall carbon foot print from installing motion/occupancy lighting sensors throughout, solar window tinting  and LED exterior light fixtures to electric vehicle charging stations and recycling efforts including cooking oil for production of bio fuel for alternative fueled vehicles.

Hotel Irvine has surpassed local energy standards; in fact, the hotel is currently at a near-perfect 97% efficiency. Hotel Irvine's award-winning initiatives include Energy Star products, extensive recycling programs, and other property-wide efforts that ensure the grounds will be just as perfect on every visit. A certified green hotel through the TripAdvisor® GreenLeader Program, Hotel Irvine's recent reinvestment initiative included the implementation of water-efficient toilets, reducing gallons per flush from 3.5 to 0.8, as well as water-efficient flow shower heads and sink faucets to conserve water usage. 

The Irvine Marriott practices a statewide auto demand response program to reduce electrical use when statewide electrical loads are heavy. The hotel has LED lighting in the basement service corridors where lights run 24 /7, along with high efficiency hot water heating boilers. The hotel also recycles old batteries, fluorescent lighting and ballasts.

In addition to Marriott International company-wide efforts such as recycling 50% or more of construction and demolition waster and the installation of water-efficient irrigation systems and automatic sensor type faucets in public and employee restrooms; individual properties like SpringHill Suites, provide bike racks for hotel guests and staff, plant one tree for every four parking spaces on site
