All 10 of Kimpton’s California San Francisco Bay Area hotels were recently awarded GS-33 Green Seal Silver certification. With these certifications, San Francisco-based Kimpton has achieved Green Seal certification for 41 of its 50 metropolitan city hotels nationwide. The company hopes to achieve 100 percent Green Seal certification through its company-wide EarthCare initiatives, which date back to the company’s inception in 1981.

Kimpton’s San Francisco area properties that achieved Green Seal certification include: Argonaut Hotel; Cypress; Harbor Court; Monaco San Francisco; Triton; Palomar San Francisco; Prescott; Serrano; Sir Francis Drake; and Tuscan Inn.

“We are so proud of our San Francisco hotels for achieving such an important and ambitious goal,” said Mike Depatie, Kimpton CEO. “This certification reaffirms for our guests and each hotel in our collection the impact our shared contribution makes on individual communities and the planet overall.”
