A Sustainable Portland Waterfront Hotel

In Support of Green Hotels

In Portland, Oregon, recycling and bike-commuting rates are among the highest in the nation. Portland leads the way among the top 10 U.S. cities for sustainability. At the Red Lion Hotel on the River Jantzen Beach, we provide our guests the balance of comfort with the peace and sustainability of green practices.

As a guest of our Portland hotel, you can participate in our efforts by:

  • Utilizing in-room and public recycling bins
  • Save water by participating in the linen reuse program 
  • Opting to use express checkout and receive invoices via email

Behind the scenes we continue to lower our impact on the environment by:

  • Energy efficient lighting throughout the hotel
  • Water conserving fixtures including sensor controlled faucets and toilets in the public restrooms
  • Updated high efficiency tankless hot water heating system for guest rooms
  • Recycling and composting with a 75% diversion ratio
  • Reducing, packaging and purchasing in bulk
  • Purchasing products that contain recycled content, bio-based materials, energy efficient, water efficient and are environmentally preferable
  • Providing local and seasonally inspired cuisine in our restaurant and catering menus

Our sustainable hotel also has a dedicated Green Team that focuses on the following areas:

  • Increasing employee engagement and fostering a sustainable culture
  • Increasing efficiencies in environmental impact (i.e. diversion ratios, energy savings, water consumption)
  • Adhering to established departmental standards for sustainability
  • Community partnerships and outreach
