To underscore parent Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.’s dedication to environmental sustainability, Hotel Grande Bretagne & King George will also share other energy-saving measures during Earth Hour, March 19th at 8:30 p.m. local time. Among them: Turning off exterior lighting; dimming interior lighting in all public and banqueting areas plus food & beverage outlets offering guests the opportunity to dine by candlelight while ensuring of course that the safety of its guests and associates is not jeopardized in any way. Guests will be advised of the actions being taken by the hotel with messages on their in-room TV screens and will also have the opportunity to participate, either by switching off or dimming their own in-room lights. The hotel management will also encourage its associates to support Earth Hour in their own homes.

“Earth Hour gives Hotel Grande Bretagne & King George the opportunity to take part in the biggest ever global event in the fight against climate change, and to demonstrate to our associates and guests just how important simple actions can be towards saving energy and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions”, said Mr. Tim Ananiadis, General Manager of both hotels.

Hotel Grande Bretagne & King George are owned and controlled respectively by Lampsa Hellenic Hotels S.A, subsidiary company of Laskaridis group, and managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc.
