The Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Airport Hotel has achieved Green Seal™, Inc.’s Bronze Level certification under the GS-33 Lodging Standard, making the hotel one of only nine within the state of California with Green Seal certification status. The Sheraton’s management company, Portfolio Hotels & Resorts, manages four of the nine California Green Seal Certified hotels: The Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, The Radisson Los Angeles Airport Hotel, The Orchard Hotel and The Orchard Garden Hotel in San Francisco.

“We are thrilled to have joined such an elite group of environmentally conscious hotels,” states hotel General Manager, Michael Washington.“Achieving this status is truly a testament to the collaborative efforts of the entire team, and demonstrates the staff’s commitment to sustainability.”

The greening of the Sheraton Gateway was driven by the hotel’s Green Team, which is championed by Mark Eberwein, Director of Food and Beverage. “There are so many great reasons to become certified as a green hotel, but the motive closest to my heart is the fact that we are making a positive difference to the well-being of our community and the future of our planet. It is clear that our employees view this as a personal responsibility and have embraced our green initiatives.”

While recycling, conserving water and improving energy efficiency have always been part of the Sheraton Gateway’s daily operational standards, making the commitment to become certified has helped to solidify and reinforce environmental disciplines in all departments. “The staff has really stepped up and adopted the responsibilities of green stewardship,” says Washington.

Achieving Green Seal certification is no small feat. Requirements for certification include documented proof of waste minimization, recycling, energy efficiency, water conservation and environmentally conscious purchasing. The property uses Green Seal certified cleaning and laundry products, as well as recycled office paper and consumable paper products. Food waste in the kitchen is composted, and the lobby bar, which serves beverages to the pool area, uses cold beverage cups made of corn, and hot beverage cups and straws made from plant based materials, all of which are compostable. Sheraton’s “Make A Green Choice” program provides guests with a choice to either reuse towels and linens, or completely forego housekeeping services for a day in exchange for credit toward food and beverage. Recycling containers are also placed in each guestroom as well as all public space areas to encourage guests to be green while traveling.

“Surveys have shown that people want to maintain their recycling and conserving practices when they travel, but the hospitality industry has not always made it convenient. We want to make it easy for our guests to partner with us in our environmental efforts,” states Washington.

Established in 1989, Green Seal™ is a national non-profit organization that has developed science-based certification standards for products and services that meet rigorous environmental requirements. Having met the EPA’s criteria for third party certifiers, Green Seal’s certification has become a reliable and established eco-label verifying environmental stewardship.
The GS-33 standard for lodging properties requires hotels to demonstrate sustainable business practices in the areas of waste minimization and reduction, recycling, energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor air quality, and environmentally sensitive purchasing.

Stylish and sophisticated, warm and inviting - the thoughtfully renovated 802-room Sheraton Gateway Hotel offers a distinctive blend of classic West Coast luxury, up-to-the moment technologies and resort-style amenities. A conveniently located hotel near LAX, wired for technology, and outfitted for recreation, the hotel perfectly captures the city's unique vitality and refined sense of urban living.
