Hotel 1000 is committed to maintaining a leadership position in Seattle for environmental management of the property’s waste stream by continually researching new options, products, and methods that enhance this objective.

Maximization of ‘Inncom’ – Hotel 1000′s robust energy management system centrally controls all energy being utilized in every guestroom and public area.

The hotel searches out many products that are made with less energy, made with less materials, yet deliver the same service, are sold in bulk to reduce the amount of packing, are made with recycled materials, use renewable resources and not fossil fuels, have extended durability and reuse potential, and contain no toxics or less toxic chemicals.
