If you travel a lot for work or pleasure, you have probably learned some tricks to try to stay healthy while on the road. Drink plenty of fluids, don’t overdo the airport food and try to get in a little exercise whenever possible are just a few tips you have heard. But have you ever stopped to think about your actual physical health and the health of the hotel itself?
Many hotels and motels are happy to provide a clean room with clean linens, but what about a healthy room? The Portola Hotel & Spa is one of the healthiest places to stay not only on the Monterey Peninsula, but throughout California’s Central Coast. With the distinction of being the local region’s first and only LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ certified hotels, comes a host of initiatives focused on the health of their guests and staff. Some of those include: 100% organic cotton mattresses that are hypoallergenic, an Ozone Laundry System that utilizes an enzyme based laundry detergent for cleaning linens and towels. They also include a green cleaning program that uses H203 system to clean and disinfect guest rooms without any harsh chemicals and guest room carpets that meet with the Carpet and Rug Institute’s plus program for low VOC material and paint that meets low VOC standards as well. This might not mean a lot to the average traveler, but to put it in terms that everyone can appreciate: when you come home from a vacation or business trip and everyone is healthy you know you have done your job and so has your hotel. Stay at the Portola Hotel & Spa and stay healthy!
