Green Sustainability

When it comes to sustainability, the AC Hotel Minneapolis Downtown was built using the latest in building materials. Being newly built, we use one, three (3) yard trash container for 245 guestrooms, 3 recycling containers for glass, plastics and aluminum and we paper shred and recycle all cardboard. Our employees have asked us about food recycling and we are currently in the exploratory/gathering information process. All toilets in the building are a 2 option, 1 gallon flush, the sinks all have a lower water flow of ½ gallon per second. All lighting for the building is LED.
