Emerald City's Green - RezHub.com Announces a Top 6 List of Seattle's Greenest Hotels


Seattle's "Emerald City" nickname has taken on a slightly different meaning as they've succeeded on their mission to shrink their carbon footprint and become one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the country. As is true for most green cities, the hotels in Seattle are a big part of the efforts to go green. RezHub.com has announced a Top 6 List of Seattle's Greenest Hotels.

Seattle, WA, August 03, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Seattle has long been known as "The Emerald City," a nickname that accurately describes their lush and green landscape. Their cool summers and mild winters play a big role in keeping the city green, and keeping travelers visiting year round. In recent years however, the Emerald City's "greeness" has taken on a slightly different meaning as they've taken on a mission to shrink their carbon footprint and become one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the country. Even the hotels are in on the action, and RezHub.com has announced a Top 6 List of Seattle's Greenest Hotels.

Seattle has already reduced their carbon emissions to 8% of what they were just 15 years ago. Pretty impressive as they're already beating what the Kyoto Treaty is asking for by 1%. Their public transportation system can get travelers and residents alike almost anywhere in the city the need to go. Their fleet includes biodiesel and hybrid buses, a ferry system, monorails, and trolleys; and since cars are unnecessary in Seattle, their carbon output is greatly reduced. The Seattle Farmers Markets are famous for their fresh fish "tossing," fruits, and vegetables, and the Pike Place Market is the oldest farmers market in the country. Travelers could spend months exploring the outdoor activities of Seattle which range from sailing to hiking to golf to whale watching to scuba diving, and the list goes on.

As is true for most green cities, the hotels in Seattle are a big part of the efforts to go green. For those traveling to the Pacific Northwest, booking these eco friendly hotels in Seattle will help support the Emerald City's mission. Each of these Seattle Green Hotels have earned a RezHub Hotel Green Score of at least 3 out of 5 Green Branches. To learn what the greenest hotels in Seattle are doing to earn their Green Scores, simply visit RezHub.com.
