The Fairfield Inn & Suites St. John's Newfoundland Becomes a TripAdvisor GreenLeader

A Green Giant Emerges Among Eco-Friendly Hotels in St John's, Newfoundland

ST. JOHN'S, NL--(Marketwired - Oct 16, 2014) - Being green may not be easy, but it is definitely worthwhile. With the environment increasingly in the spotlight of current affairs, it's never been more important for everyone to create a smaller carbon footprint. At least that's how the Fairfield Inn & Suites St. John's Newfoundland sees it. These new and well-appointed Newfoundland accommodations recently earned TripAdvisor's GreenLeader Silver status, proving that hospitality can be as environmentally responsible as it is inviting.

A trusted travel resource, TripAdvisor offers its GreenLeaders Program as a way to recognise those hotels that work hard to go easy on the environment. Green practices ranging from recycling to offering electric-car charging stations earn properties one of four statuses: Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum.

In the case of this extended-stay hotel in St John's, earning Silver status for 2014 involved a solid commitment to eco-friendly programs. In addition to standard procedures like recycling and a towel-reuse program, the property installed features like an Energy Star pool heater, sensors to adjust temperatures when guest rooms are empty and water-efficient showerheads, faucets and toilets throughout the building. Its toiletries are 100% biodegradable with packaging that's at least 50% recycled, its walls are swathed in low-VOC paints and everything from its flooring to its furniture is recycled when replaced.

Complementing the hotel's robust eco-friendly attitude is its warm hospitality. Guests choose this property over other hotels in St John's, Newfoundland for its winning combination of modern style and value-added amenities. A stylish lobby and business centre greet visitors, while complimentary daily breakfasts, spacious guest rooms and free wired and wireless Internet make it both convenient and practical. Plus the indoor pool with a waterslide earn it further distinction among St John's family hotels.

Whether travellers arrive for the indulgent amenities or the eco-friendly measures, this GreenLeader hotel welcomes its guests with the best of both.
