Kimpton Hotel, Once a Post Office, Axes Environmental Impact


WASHINGTON, D.C.—The green team at Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Washington, D.C. has had a lot to smile about lately. The hotel was presented with the Technology Innovation, Medium Property award earlier this summer by the American Hotel & Lodging Association. That honor followed last year’s Mayor’s Sustainability Award. More importantly, in the last two years the hotel has completed a long list of projects—$2.4 million worth—that have resulted in a drop of 48 percent in utility costs, 24 percent reduction in energy use, 31 percent reduction in energy rates, and 32 percent drop in water consumption. Getting to its current operating condition has been a long road for the property that originally was built in 1842. It once served as the U.S. General Post Office and was converted into a hotel in 2001. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) owns the building and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust has owned the ground lease since 2010. Not long after Pebblebrook got involved in the hotel, it began identifying projects to invest in.
