OK, so that's good news for environmentally conscious planners, but was it worth the portion of the $60 million Marriott International spent on the property since it bought the hotel five years ago? According to a press release:
- After the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort and Spa invested over a million dollars in four new chillers and energy efficient lighting fixtures throughout the resort, the resort recorded an annual savings of $350,000 in energy operating costs and reaped more than $150,000 in rebates from the Hawaiian Electric Company.
I'd say that's a pretty positive endorsement for doing the right thing, wouldn't you?
