Green practices earn guests discounts

The InterContinental San Francisco has introduced the LEED by Example package, which allows guests to save up to 10% off their room rate by taking part in various green programs at the hotel.

The package rewards the following green practices:

  • Reusing towels and linens: 2% off room rate
  • Showing a used public transportation stub: 2% off room rate
  • Walking 10,000 steps per day, as measured with a complimentary pedometer: 3% off room rate
  • Using the ecoMODE button on the in-room thermostat to reduce energy consumption: 3% off room rate

The InterContinental San Francisco recently was awarded LEED Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance.
