Green Features At NYLO Hotels

NYLO Green Hotel Initiatives

“Cutting edge” refers to more than NYLO's décor and style.  When it comes to environmental stewardship, NYLO is recognized among the leaders and top innovators in the hotel industry. Our Green Construction and Green Operation policies call for using the most energy-efficient building materials and techniques, including a minimum of 50 percent recyclable materials. The three R's - reduce, recycle, reuse - are second nature at eco-friendly NYLO Hotels.

Here are just some other things we're doing to help Mother Nature:
  • All NYLO Hotels operate with at least 50 percent Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). NYLO Providence/Warwick is the first hotel in Rhode Island to operate with 100 percent RECs; wind is the power of choice at NYLO Plano at Legacy.
  • NYLO's prototype hotels are constructed of eco-friendly concrete, which is then incorporated into the overall urban loft aesthetic.
  • NYLO's restaurants use a water purification system for all bottled water, including still and sparkling water. All bottles are sterilized and reused.
  • All “to-go” food and beverage containers, coffee cups, straws, utensils and napkins used at NYLO's restaurants are biodegradable and made from corn-based products.
  • All bottles and cardboard discarded by the hotels and their guests are recycled.
  • Energy-efficient light bulbs are used throughout NYLO's properties.
  • Guest lofts feature stand-alone heating and air-conditioning units that can be individually controlled for greater energy efficiency.
  • Recycled building materials are used whenever possible for hotel construction or renovation. 
  • Guestroom electricity is activated when the room's key-card is inserted into a switch by the door - which means all electric devices are turned off when the guest leaves the room.
  • Desk pads and folio binders use recycled paper.
  • Bath amenities come in recycled bottles and have no chemical preservations like Paraben.
  • The NYLO Dallas South Side has been awarded LEED Gold certification.
