Starwood Hotels Building Green Choices

In July 2008, Starwood Hotels & Resorts will open its first hotel designed to appeal to environmentally conscious travelers.

Located in Lexington, Massachusetts, the hotel is part of the new chain of Element hotels, each of which will earn LEED certification through the U.S. Green Building Council's portfolio program.

"With the launch of Element, we're creating a new way to build hotels and guest experiences through the lens of environmental responsibility," says Frits van Paasschen, Starwood's chief executive officer.

Starwood plans to open 20 Element hotels by the end of 2009. Another one already on their site is Irving, Texas.
