An Eco-Friendly Pillow-top Treat

The Tysons Corner Marriott is putting a healthy, eco-friendly spin on the traditional pillow-top treat. The hotel near Washington, D.C. is giving guests a special turndown treat of wholesome house-made granola with oats, almonds and dried fruit. The nourishing indulgence is packaged in cups made with 100 percent corn plastic that are fully compostable within 45 to 60 days in a commercial composting environment.

“We’ve always seen our hotel as an alternative to the same-old, same-old for travelers,” says general manager Shelly DiMeglio. “We think guests will be pleasantly surprised by both the taste and the beneficial characteristics of this new amenity.”

A note on the granola turndown amenity encourages guests who like it to make it part of their morning routine at the onsite Shula’s Steak House restaurant, which serves everything from quick nibbles to big bites for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
