As tourist became more conscious of the impact of their travels on the environment, many hotels nowadays begin to adapt the "green" hotel trend. Several hotels and accommodations from all over the world improve their facilities and make their amenities more sustainable and friendly to nature in order to attract many environmentally-conscious travelers.

The Hilton Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, promotes the urban agriculture in developing the hotel's rooftop farm where all the herbs and vegetables that are served in the hotel are cultured. In partnership with the Windy City Harvest, The Hilton Chicago employs and trains teenagers from poor communities to have basic knowledge on urban agriculture and apply it in order to develop the urban farming used by the hotel.

Also, according to a statement released to Traveler's Today, there is a hotel in New Orleans called the Windsor Court Hotel, which has coordinated with Tesla Motors and EnviroSpark Energy Solutions in order to come up with the installation of four Tesla-only and two valet-operated electric-vehicle charging stations for guests. The Windsor Court Hotel believes that this move will make it easier for hybrid/electric vehicle owners to plan for their trips and help save the environment all at the same time.

There is also the "cool roof" initiative in Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel and Casino for the purpose of efficient food waste conversion. The cool roof is a water-filter system that has the ability to decrease building temperatures, trap sediment and let clean water go through the sea. In this system, food wastes are also transformed into fertilizers, which are capable of helping the vegetables and other produce grow.

The Kitano Hotel New York in Manhattan also features the NIPPON PMAC heating and cooling system which allows its guests to have a full control over the in-room temperatures as this 2-pipe system has temperature flexibility capable of adjusting depending on the needs of each individual per room. The said heating and cooling system also shows a 20 percent savings on the energy costs and consumption of The Kitano Hotel New York.
