Hotel Sustainability & Social Action

At Viceroy Santa Monica, we are committed to taking care of our employees, guests and the earth through the following initiatives. Learn more about sustainability and social action at Viceroy Hotels & Resorts.

Sustainability Practices

Guest Services

For each guest, we provide local listings for eco-friendly restaurants, businesses, and services.

Guests can receive their folios via email at check-out.

Water Conservation

Over 95% of the fixtures installed in the hotel are low flow, meaning they use less water than ordinary fixtures.

A drip-irrigation system has been installed for all trees and flowerbeds and is set to irrigate in early morning and evening periods only.

A leak-detection system has been set up for all fixtures.

An active plan has been established to reduce chlorine usage in the swimming pool and fountains.

Viceroy Santa Monica has implemented a linen and towel reuse program for our guests.

Green Housekeeping

Our housekeeping staff utilizes our state-of-the-art Electrolyzer system, which creates in-house cleaning products that are non-toxic and hypoallergenic, ensuring that the air in your room is healthy, clean and fresh.

All products, including soaps, shampoo, and conditioner, for the spa, guest bathrooms and public restrooms are eco-friendly.

Neil George refillable soap, shampoo and conditioner bottles are used in all guest bathrooms, saving thousands of plastic bottles each month.

Indoor Air Quality

Viceroy Santa Monica has an air purifier or HEPA filter in each room.

The property is 100% non-smoking.

Reduced Emissions

Complimentary charging stations for in-house guests.

Viceroy Santa Monica has established incentives for employee carpooling and the use of public transport.

Waste Management

We have a comprehensive recycling program that includes light bulbs, glass, cardboard, paper, cell phones, batteries and printer cartridges.

Our policy for newspaper delivery is by request only.

We installed runoff filters in our parking lots to prevent debris from draining into the Santa Monica Bay.


Viceroy Santa Monica has adopted a Green Purchasing policy that outlines our commitment to purchasing sustainable, eco-friendly products whenever possible.

We have actively increased the purchasing of food from local sources.

PEB 5-Star Promise Statement

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (“Pebblebrook”) strongly supports AHLA’s 5-Star Promise. Our pledge to AHLA complements the practices and policies in place by our hotel operating partners which are designed to ensure that the hotel employees at our owned hotels abide by the law, respect individual rights and do not tolerate sexual harassment of any kind at our properties. We have dedicated a significant amount of resources to assist our hotel operators with sexual harassment awareness training and avoidance programs, in addition to training and resources to prevent trafficking. We will continue to engage without hotel operators to provide the resources to further assist them in ensuring the safety of our hotel employees as well as our guests. Pebblebrook has committed to funding the purchase of hotel employee safety devices for use at all of our owned hotels by 2020. Through our pledge to the 5-Star Promise, Pebblebrook intends to contribute to positive, industry-wide improvements to continue to make hotels a safe place for employees and guests.
