Starwood Capital Group has announced it will open the first eco-hotel in the US capital in 2010.
The hotel, to be developed with Perseus Realty, will be one of Starwood’s first “1” Hotels, the recently launched five-star, eco-friendly international hotel brand.
“1” Hotels will combine environmentally sustainable architecture with impeccable service and luxurious comfort, Starwood says.
The hotel development will be advised by the National Resources Defence Council and will be LEED certified.
Starwood says 1% of the property’s profits will be donated to local environmental organisations.
