The Element Ewing-Hopewell has become the first hotel in New Jersey to win the coveted Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The award reflects Element's commitment to design their hotels “green from the ground up.”
The design of the hotel’s 127 guest rooms uses eco-friendly materials to create a space that is both sustainable and elegant. Stylish carpets are made from 100 percent recycled material, and low-VOC paint brings color to the room without lowering its air quality.
Open room layout and oversized windows maximizes natural light, and the use of compact fluorescent bulbs cuts energy costs by up to 75 percent. Green cleaning products keep rooms both clean and healthy, and even the ubiquitous “Do Not Disturb” sign has been replaced by an environmentally friendly magnet.
The Element Ewing-Hopewell is the 14th property of Starwood Hotels and Resorts to attain LEED certification. Starwood, a pioneer in sustainable hospitality, uses its Element line of properties as a test bed for sustainable concepts.
