Seattle, A Beacon of Sustainability: Fortunately, Seattle has been a pioneer in sustainability, and as you spend time in this green city, you can feel good knowing that you’re helping to protect the planet. The city recycles more than double the national average, and more than 90 percent of local electricity comes from hydropower. Plastic single-use shopping and carryout bags are banned statewide, and Seattle banned plastic utensils at restaurants and bars in 2018.

Plastic-Free Pledge: Our steadfast commitment to eliminating single-use plastics is evident throughout our establishment. We’ve seamlessly integrated eco-friendly alternatives in guest rooms, dining areas, and operational zones, ensuring that your stay aligns with Seattle’s sustainable ethos.

For every sale of his Rub With Love salmon rub, he donates 1% of the proceeds to support their efforts in preserving and enhancing salmon populations in the Pacific Northwest.
