Le Meridien Delfina Santa Monica strives to improve its own green footprint, as well as that of its guests. The hotel is proof that environmentally responsible living doesn't preclude sophistication and style. Le Méridien Delfina has implemented numerous eco-programs and transformed its signature guest experience into an encompassing eco-practice. These diligent efforts align with the official Second Nature mission of Viceroy Hotel Group, the management company of Le Méridien Delfina.
This luxury hotel is the first on the west coast to pioneer the FDA approved electrolyzed water cleaning system reducing the purchase of cleaning products and associated plastic waste. The multi-purpose cleaning solution, made from electrolyzed tap water and salt, is refilled into dispensers by custodial staff for use facility-wide. Faucet aerators fitted in common area restroom hand sinks reduce water flow to 0.5 gallons per minute. The advanced PH conductivity controller installed in the cooling tower also recycles water. For energy efficiency, Le Meriden recently renovated the hotel facility-wide with LED lighting in common areas, parking garages and guest rooms, resulting in significant energy and cost savings. Retrofits include LED linear tubes.
Sustainable procurement ranges from toilet and facial tissue containing post-consumer recycled content. Le Meridien’s comprehensive recycling programs range from co-mingled blue bin collection to composting pre-consumer food waste via the City’s Restaurant Food Waste program. And to close the sustainable loop, every guest room is equipped with a recycling bin.
