Hyatt at Olive 8

Join Hyatt at Olive 8, Elaia and Urbane this Earth Day as they celebrate their continued environmental commitment with special offers to promote awareness. While April 22, 2011 is set aside to inspire appreciation for the Earth, Hyatt at Olive 8 participates year-round with its dedication to waste reduction and energy conservation, using 20 percent less electric power and 32 percent less water than similarly sized buildings. Since the groundbreaking opening in 2009 as the city’s first and only LEED-certified hotel, Hyatt at Olive 8 continues to be recognized as an industry leader in green initiatives, winning several new awards such as the coveted 4 Green Key rating and top honors in the hospitality category at the Green Washington Awards.

“We take our commitment to sustainability very seriously, ensuring that all entities of the hotel effectively minimize their environmental impact without sacrificing the comfort of our guests,” said Steve Vissotzky, General Manager of Hyatt at Olive 8. “Earth Day is a great opportunity to celebrate recent achievements and our continued leadership in green innovation.”

Hyatt welcomes guests to experience its uncompromised luxury with a special Earth Day package, valid throughout the month of April. The promotion includes deluxe accommodations and a walkabout with Seattle Urbane Adventures. The walking tour explores landmarks such as the Space Needle, Pike Place Market and Olympic Sculpture Park while detailing the city’s rich history from a local naturalist guide. Starting at $214, the package can be booked through the online offer code: ERTHGN. The hotel will also be rewarding stewards of the Earth with a ‘Greenest Fan’ contest running throughout the month of April. Fans on facebook can enter themselves or nominate a friend by describing what they do to reduce their carbon footprint. The winner will be selected and notified on Earth Day, receiving an overnight stay, breakfast for two at Urbane and a $25 metro card. To enter, visit:
