A Green Indianapolis Hotel Experience

Marriott's Spirit to Conserve and Preserve

The new and improved green Marriott experience is taking shape at Indianapolis Marriott Downtown. We have put into place a series of sustainable hotel practices to position our property as one of the leading eco reponsible businesses in the area.

As a result of our eco responsible efforts, Indianapolis Marriott Downtown was officially named a Certified Green Hotel by environmental non-profit Green Seal™. The organization’s Green Seal Standard for Hotels and Lodging Properties is one of the most rigorous in the hospitality industry, requiring compliance with waste management, energy efficiency, water conservation, wastewater management and green procurement standards. Our hotel is the first property in Indy and one of five Marriott hotels to earn certification from Green Seal™.

Long-term goals of our green Indianapolis hotel and the Marriott brand include further reducing energy and water consumption by 25 percent per available room by 2017, creating green construction standards for hotel developers, educating associates and guests to support the environment, and investing in innovative conservation initiatives. Some of the green Indianapolis hotel practices we have implemented include:
