Z Ocean Ranks Gold in Green

There’s another reason why Z Ocean Hotel is the place to stay in South Beach, we’re Golden!

TripAdvisor.com recently recognized the luxury boutique hotel, Z Ocean Hotel, as a Gold Level GreenLeader, the second highest ranking, for our eco-friendly practices on South Beach. This award is not bestowed upon every hotel, but rather hotels that are committed to green practices by implementing programs that promote recycling, water efficiency, and alternative energy.

As a Gold Level GreenLeader, Z Ocean Hotel offers a variety of environmentally safe practices such as: Linen Reuse Program, which affords guest the opportunity to select how often they would like their towels and linens replace, Low-Flow Appliances that reduce water consumption, Eco-Friendly Products on all dry-cleaning services, Computerized Water Heaters and LED Lighting, Trash Recycling Program and Electronic billing, High Efficiency Air Filters, 100% Non-Smoking rooms, and more.

Whether its smart water practices, energy conservation, waste reduction, or clean air practices, we do our part to ensure all eco-friendly practices keep environmental and human safety in mind. (Learn more about our Green Practices)

Stay at Z Ocean Hotel and you’ll gain more than award winning services – you’ll be engaging in eco-friendly habits and practices!

How the GreenLeader Program works:

Hotels that qualify for the program are placed into two categories, GreenLeader and GreenPartner, which is based upon the use of green practices. GreenLeader’s are placed into four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. TripAdvisor.com has partnered with Energystar, U.S. Green Building Council (LEED), and United Nations Environment Programme to review these submissions.
