Hotels in Brunswick, ME Salute a Green Leader in Their Midst

TripAdvisor Recognizes the Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport as a GreenPartner in Hospitality

BRUNSWICK, ME -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Green, some might argue, is the new black. Whether it's a local coffee shop opting to use cups made from corn, or an authoritative federal report outlining the ramifications of climate change, it seems everyone is trying on the mossy hue one way or another. And that includes Brunswick Airport hotels. Recently announcing its GreenPartner status with TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders program, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport is becoming a green giant among local hotels and an attractive option among eco-conscious travelers.

TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders program is based upon a set of environmental standards developed by a leading environmental consulting firm in conjunction with other expert partners. These standards are then used to assess a given property's eligibility to participate in the program and, if accepted, determine its GreenLeader level. (Levels range from GreenPartner, to Bronze-, Silver-, Gold- and Platinum-level GreenLeaders.)

With its newly awarded GreenPartner status, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport once again stands out among other hotels in Freeport, ME. Here, eco-minded guests will look on admiringly at landscaped beds where weeds have been manually removed rather than sprayed out of existence. They will breathe a little easier in rooms outfitted with energy-efficient light bulbs. They will sleep soundly in linens destined to eventually be donated to a Rwandan orphanage program. And while their guests relax, the hotel staff can be found hard at work implementing their own recycling program that involves diligently sorting and recycling paper, glass, cardboard, plastic and metal daily as well as recycling old closet doors for lumber.

Of course, its GreenPartner status is just one of many reasons why travelers might choose this Brunswick, ME accommodation. Other reasons range from its host of gracious features, to its convenient location near General Dynamics/Bath Iron Works, Bowdoin College and L.L. Bean. Complimentary hot breakfasts, for example, get visitors off to a good start each morning, while spacious suites equipped with mini-refrigerators and free, high-speed Internet access make the hotel ideal for travelers arriving in Brunswick, Maine on extended stays.

With a certifiable commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, and a range of impressive amenities available for guests, this property unites the best of sustainability and service. After all, it may not be easy being green, but it certainly is attractive.
