LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) ratings have become increasingly sought after by businesses and architects around the world, and the Portola Hotel and Spa is just the latest of many organizations shaping up for their consideration.

The Portola Hotel and Spa just completed an extensive "greenovation" that earned them a coveted LEED Silver rating for its existing buildings. The award is no small feat as only six hotels in the entire United States have managed to obtain the rating.

It is a small start, but this award raises hope that more hotels across the country (and the world) will take note and work hard to follow suit and go green. Stats for Hotel Greenovations Trending: Older & Average
