Two newly constructed Marriott International branded hotels in Atlanta, Georgia, US, are touted to become the greenest hotels in the city.

The SpringHill Suites Atlanta Airport Gateway will be Atlanta’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold hotel.

The Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway will also apply for LEED silver status when it opens in August this year.

Marriott aims to acquire LEED certification for all its 300 properties by 2015 as part of its green initiative programme.

Both properties were built using recycled materials on a site equipped with water and energy-efficient features.
