According to an article on hotel-online, The Fairfield Inn by Marriott is among the hotels that don’t just chuck or auction off the old stuff after a renovation. Instead, they donate them to Habitat for Humanity and other charitable organizations.
"We wanted to ensure that people, who truly needed these items, would have a vehicle and an opportunity to put them to good use. We also wanted to have an impact in the community in which we operate our hotels," said Bharat Sangani, M.D., Chairman of Encore Enterprises, Inc., in the article. "For us, this was a perfect way to accomplish all of our goals."
