Eco-boutique CityFlats Hotel is a modern spot in Holland, Michigan that expects to get LEED Silver within the next month. When certified, it’ll be one of only a few green hotels in the country, which is weird because hotels focus so much on energy and water efficiency. Some of the bigger hotel companies have announced trendy green hotel brands, but they’re moving slow and in the mean time, we’re seeing eco-boutiques like CityFlats pop up in various locations.
As you can tell from the images, style wasn’t sacrificed for sustainability at CityFlats.
In addition to recycling 95% of the waste from the construction process, the green hotel has some of the following features: cork flooring in guest rooms; bamboo bed bases, linens, and cloths (as opposed to cotton); recycled glass bathroom countertops; low-VOC paints; low-flow faucets and showerheads; dual-flush toilets in all guest rooms; decorative LED lighting on the exterior and interior; floor-to-ceiling windows for natural lighting; off-site waste recycling to minimize waste; and automated energy sensors for controlling non-occupied rooms.
CityFlats has fifty-five rooms on five floors and each room is unique. It’s part of the "anti-vanilla" experience at the modern, green hotel.
