Our Big Green

“Going Green” is more than just a fad… it is essential to our success as a company and to our collective well-being as a planet.

We believe that environmental sustainability means good business! That's why the B. F. Saul Company Hospitality Group is proud to be a leader in “greening” the hospitality industry. We have been recognized with certifications and awards for our accomplishments thus far.

We received the first annual “Spirit to Preserve” award from Marriott. This prestigious award recognizes the franchisee who best exemplifies Marriott's global commitment to sustainability.  Mark Carrier, our Senior Vice President, was presented the EcoCEO Award by SmartCEO Magazine for the Hospitality Group's effectiveness in implementing green programs in a large company.  All of our Virginia hotels are certified as Virginia Green.  One of our veteran managers who launched the Hospitality Group's green initiative received the Green Footprint Award from the Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association.  The Holiday Inn in Gaithersburg, MD is a two-time award recipient from the City of Gaithersburg in recognition of their commitment to the environment.

The B. F. Saul Company Hospitality Group's commitment to the environment is expressed in Our Big Green Pledge:

We are committed to the preservation and improvement of the environment for the benefit of our guests, fellow team members and home communities. We will:

Conserve Our Resources!

Reduce Waste and Recycle!

Act Now! Learn and Lead!

Each team member is responsible to fulfill Our Big Green Pledge every day.
