If Virginia is the state for lovers, the Washington Dulles Airport Marriot is the hotel for tree huggers.

That’s the message the Dulles airport hotel wants to send to CEOs and company owners looking for a place to hold a conference, convention or retreat in 2013. In the spirit of inspiring and promoting environmental responsibility, the Dulles hotel’s all-green meetings initiative has taken root now that the Virginia Department of Environmental Equality has awarded the hotel its Certificate of Environmental Commitment.

The newly renovated Dulles airport hotel features 13,500 square feet of flexible meeting spaces perfect for small breakout groups or large assemblies of up to 1,500 participants. Each Dulles meeting space boasts high-speed wireless Internet access along with available state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment such as portable PA systems, LCD projectors and microphones with guaranteed 24-hour onsite support. The hotel’s Lakeview Picnic Pavilion offers unique outdoor event space for groups to enjoy the weather while team building or strategic planning during the spring and summer months.

Experienced planning and creative catering teams set the Marriott Dulles hotel apart from others in the area. A dedicated meeting concierge provides onsite support for attendees and helps keep meetings running smoothly by making copies, faxing, shipping or printing necessary materials. With advance notice, the hotel’s professional catering staff can serve anything from a simple coffee or snack break to an elaborate themed dinner or gala. Messenger services, photographers and security guards also are available.

The Marriot is one of the only hotels in Dulles that offers an online guide for businesses to start their event planning early by calculating costs and setting up floor plans for maximum comfort and efficiency.

The Washington Dulles Airport Marriot demonstrates its Earth-friendly attitude while providing meeting attendees with 100 percent recycled note pads, pens made from recycled materials, eco-friendly water service, organic flowers, linen-free tables, paperless billing, online event menus and a recyclable box lunch program. All office paper, plastic and glass from events are recycled as well as grease and cooking oil from the hotel’s Aviate Bar & Grille and Lobby Lounge.

After the meeting, environmentally conscious business professionals will feel right at home when they retire to the hotel’s 364 spacious guest rooms and four luxury suites. Each of these accommodations offer low-flow shower heads, high-efficiency digital thermometers and a linen re-use program. Guests who bring their work “home” with them will find large desks with ergonomic chairs and high-speed Internet at their disposal. And convention-goers will find one king or two double beds most relaxing with down comforters, custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy down and feather pillows. Other convenient amenities and services include soundproof windows, irons and ironing boards, 24-room service, in-room coffeemakers, 27-inch TVs with premium movie channels, and Marriott’s Plug-In technology.
