At Hotel Citrine, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment and our community. From utilizing sustainable building materials, embracing eco-centric design, to ongoing programs and partnerships, we believe that sustainability is not only possible but essential.


Designed with Nature in Mind

Even before our boutique hotel opened its doors in 2021, Hotel Citrine planned to take the city’s strict environmental building standards to new heights. No other hotel can claim similar thoroughness of our efforts, and the conscious component is only the start. The unique appointed modern aesthetic with its unexpected details truly sets Hotel Citrine apart from the rest.

  • Building materials selected with intention: cork and terrazzo flooring in bathrooms and throughout hotel, bamboo in lieu of wood in guest rooms, eco-friendly carpet in meeting spaces
  • Organic mattresses and recycled cork headboards
  • Reclaimed wood and other fabric materials in guest rooms and throughout hotel
  • Dual-paned windows for energy conservation
  • Artwork featuring recycled materials
