Our guests and PLANET 21
The new PLANET 21 strategy includes an innovative program for informing customers and encouraging them to contribute to the hotels' actions and achievements, all along the guest experience.
Plant for the Planet
The principle of this unique project is to offer guests the option of reusing their towels, with half of the savings on laundry bills then allocated for tree planting projects. The formula is "5 towels reused = 1 tree planted."
