Green guest amenities

Some of Coast Hotels’ green guest amenities include:

  • Helping you stay current by enjoying thousands of full-content, current-day newspapers and magazines on your tablet, laptop or smartphone during your stay with PressReader as our gift to you. No more print!
  • Helping you stay fresh with botanical-based bathroom amenities. We also use large format containers to help reduce the use of plastic.
  • Helping you stay charged with a growing number of EV Charging Stations. For example, Coast Coal Harbour Vancouver Hotel by APA offers two Sun Country Highway electric vehicle stations.

In our continual effort to remain environmentally friendly, three Coast Hotel properties have been retrofitted with Sempa hybrid heating systems. These use proprietary technology to decrease greenhouse gas emissions from space heating and water heating. Additionally, Coast Coal Harbour Vancouver Hotel by APA is our first Zero Waste property, so it doesn’t contribute waste to landfills.
