The Bancroft Hotel is the greenest hotel in Berkeley! How can we say this and why should staying at an Eco Friendly hotel be important to you, when visiting Berkeley? Most businesses, like hotels, consume a lot of resources. From large amounts of water being heated and used, to lights being on, to regularly planned renovation—hotels are big consumers. By making our historic building a green hotel, we wanted to accomplish a few things. We wanted to lessen our impact on the environment, we wanted to prove that a historic building could be an eco-friendly hotel and we wanted to encourage our guests to bring some green into their lives. This is why we are an open book—literally! When staying with us, just open the guest book to find out where each of the beautiful products in your rooms came from. We hope that you will feel inspired to bring some of these ideas home with you. Hotels can be more than a place to sleep. They should refresh, connect you with the city you are in—and even inform. Bring some green home today!
