ABOUT THE EVENT

The Kimpton Aertson Hotel and Aertson Midtown Apartments come together in the great complex along with Woodhouse spa, Caviar & Bananas, Nada and more as a Design and Construction LEED Certified project.

Some of the highlights we will be seeing on the tour will be hotel guestrooms, to show the lighting and how that and the energy saving temp controls work.  And how we utilize full size shampoo, conditioner and shower gels in each room to reduce waste.  We also have a clean the world program that all Kimptons utilize, and each guest room is equipped with both trash & recycling bins aswell!

Stop and see our water stations that save the world from plastic water bottles and actually count how many we have saved from landfills!  We will wrap up with a talk with Chef who uses only hyper local food and beverage, local farmers and foragers and so many creative ways to reuse produce and limit waste.  We will also sample some small bites from Chef RJ Cooper that will show how all of these things come together.
