Make a Green Choice.
One night can mean significant savings.
The Four Points Milan Hotel is proudly giving you the opportunity to Make A Green Choice by allowing you the option to conserve water, electricity, gas and chemicals. As part of our green initiatives program, we are offering a 5€ voucher to our Nectare restaurant or 250Starwood Preferred Guest® Starpoints awarded at checkout for each night you decline housekeeping (except day of departure).
Conserving water, energy and other resources is rewarding for you and great for the environment. Did you know that it takes an average of 30 gallons of water to wash the sheets and towels in your guestroom? Expanded to doing that every day for a full year, that's enough water to fill the average family swimming pool!
See what a difference a night can make!
186.2 liters is 787 cups, enough for 1 person to drink almost 2 cups per day for a year.
That's enough to run an Energy Star-rated laptop for 10 hours.
Save natural gas
Enough energy to heat a 37 square meter room at 21°C for 4 hours - when it's 12°C outside.
Fewer chemicals equals less toxicity in the environment. And that's good for everyone.
*All amounts estimated based on average guestroom size and materials usage.
