Environmental Practices

Today’s green-savvy guests will find plenty of eco options at Aloft Washington National Harbor, thanks to our see green program. It starts at arrival, with park-like landscaping that offers the chance for a breath of fresh air.

Inside, natural materials like cork and sustainable wood veneers are integrated into the hotel’s design. And in guest rooms, less landfill litter is the thinking behind our in-shower product dispensers—non-biodegradable bottles, be gone! Guests can also choose to reuse—towels and linens, that is—to help save water and energy. Let’s go green!

Please note that some of the sustainability initiatives above may be in process of being implemented and may not be available in some areas of the facility.
