A Green Halloween at the Radisson LAX

Savvy hoteliers use holidays to help put heads in beds—or at least in costumes. This Halloween at the Radisson Hotel at Los Angeles Airport, hotel staff are inviting guests and employees to celebrate Halloween in an environmentally friendly fashion. Upon arrival, guests will be treated to green apples and organic candy. Then, they can vote for their favorite Jack-O-Lanterns, decorated by hotel employees using only recycled items. The Jack-O-Lanterns will be on display beginning Thursday, October 29 in the hotel lobby near the main entrance.

The Concorde Lounge is spotlighting Bonterra Chardonnay and True Earth Cabernet organic wines, as well as Mothership Witt and Samuel Smith Lager organic beers. For breakfast, Palmira Restaurant is featuring heart-healthy options, including organic eggs made-to-order, all-natural organic berries of the day, organic Greek yogurt, and a selection or organic cereals and breads.

The Radisson Hotel at Los Angeles Airport just became a member of the Green Hotels Association and is currently expanding its sustainable practices.

What "green" special event(s) do you have planned for Halloween to help bring in new business? What about for Thanksgiving? Christmas? New Year's Eve? If you are doing something creative, let me know about it. I will be sure to share your plans with my readers.
