The Hotel des Marronniers, a charming hotel environmentally friendly in the heart of Paris

We are delighted to welcome you to our little green bower in the heart of Paris. Our two beautiful and large chestnut trees as well as our plants and shrubs remind us every day how important it is to preserve our environment. Thus, it was obvious for the Hotel des Marronniers and its secret garden to become environmentally friendly.
In order to make our commitment more concrete, we obtained theGreen Key” label, the first sustainable tourism label in the world for tourist accommodations.
In this sense, we have made water and energy consumption our priority:
  • Water resources management: Installation of flow limiters
  • Energy resources management: Low consumption light bulbs / presence detector / timer
  • Contract with a Green Energy supplier
  • Sensitization of our guests and staff to the use of air conditioning, heating…
But not only …
  • Our teams are trained to respect the daily ecological gestures.
  • We choose our service providers and suppliers according to their sustainable and social commitments.
  • The sorting of waste which is set up in the rooms and in the common areas also contributes to our ecological approach. Thus, our waste is entirely sorted.
  • The products used for cleaning are now all eco-labeled and their consumption controlled which offers better air quality and fewer health risks.
  • The care products put in the rooms have been reviewed to save plastic and to be recyclable. They are fully eco-certified.
     Of course, we use organic products, short supply chains and seasonal products for breakfast.
  • And always thinking about the respect for nature, we have decided to fully digitalize our reservation system in order to considerably reduce our use of paper.
Finally, how could we make this change without thinking about taking care of our garden? We maintain it without pesticides and use alternative methods to control weeds and insects. Each new planting is eco-responsible, local and in accordance with our garden and our values. Rainwater is collected for cleaning, and watering is reasonable and automated.
Moreover, we would like to enlist your help in achieving our aims.
Let’s protect our water resources
We will change your towels when needed: please leave in the bathtub or on the ground the ones to be changed
We limit the linen change (every 3 days) in order to reduce the impact of harmful products for the environment. Make sure taps are switched off when brushing teeth in order not to run Water unnecessarily. A 5 minutes shower consumes 40 to 50 liters of water, each additional minute consumes 10 liters more.
Be careful about what you throw into the toilets, wastebaskets are available in all bathrooms. Cigarette butts or sanitary towels for example distort the smooth running of water-treatment plants
Please call the staff if there is any water leak or dysfunction.
Energy is our future, let’s save it!
As part of our environmental certification, we signed a «green» and 100% renewable electricity contract.
In your room, have the right reflexes:
  • Use heating and air conditioning sparingly: it’s better for your health
