The Shore Hotel- Sustainable Luxury Boutique Hotel in Santa Monica

Close to the Santa Monica pier on Ocean Avenue, the Shore Hotel Santa Monica is the newest luxury boutique hotel in the city.  The Silver LEED-registered Santa Monica environmentally friendly hotel takes a revolutionary approach to sustainability.

The hotel worked with a LEED consultant to ensure that every aspect of the hotel was designed to reduce the consumption of natural resources, from the building design itself to its day-to-day operation. As much as possible, the hotel relies on locally procured recycled and recyclable materials, many salvaged from the building's demolished preexisting site for use in the new build. Every aspect of the hotel was designed to reduce consumption of natural resources. If only all the other hotels would follow suit....

Eco-ticity Facts:
  • 50% of construction waste was recycled or salvaged
  • Wood sourced from sustainable forests
  • 10% of all building materials are from within a 500 mile radius of the project
  • Low-flow water fixtures that significantly reduce water consumption
  • Native landscaping that reduces the extent of required irrigation
  • Sophisticated building controls system that monitors and adjusts energy usage
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) materials
  • Maximized access to natural daylight

Love the color coordinated turquoise and orange that consistently permeates the hotel.
