The Courtyard Newark at the University of Delaware is the first "Green" hotel in the state of Delaware. With the aide and advice of several outside agencies and consultant's from nationally recognized organizations such as Hospitality Green. We are teaming up with vendors and guest alike to not only ensure our commitment to this much needed challenge but also the betterment of the environment.
As we move into this new way of operations we are experimenting with many new Green practices, such as composting, growing our own herbs and some vegetables, Green chemicals, finding vendors who support the Green efforts we are making, "Take BacK' programs with boxes and cardboard. Green products such as corn based paper-goods, and soy based materials. Some have been great success and some we are still working out the kinks. But there is an energy and empowerment amongst our staff to seek out new ways of conservation.
We are currently ranked as a Diamond hotel with Marriott and take our commitments seriously. Our hotel is a training facility for the University of Delaware and Marriott. We feel it is not only our commitment to the community but our responsibility to mentor the next generations of hospitality professionals.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit our hotel and staff. We would appreciate any input you could share with us during your stay about our Green Initiative. Please email me personally and I will send you a Green discounted rate and or special offers and coupons for your stay with us.
