Environmental Excellence

Since early 2008, the refurbished Q hotel + spa kansas city in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri's oldest entertainment district - Westport - has instituted more than 30 environmental initiatives. Environmentally sound cleaning supplies, organic wines in the bar, and bulk table condiments, ceramic plates and organic Fair Trade coffees in the breakfast room, are only the beginning.

There's a trashcan in each room for recyclable materials
, a single cup coffee maker with ceramic mugs, and Earth-friendly body care products at sink and shower. Q uses compact fluorescent bulbs in every light fixture, recycled paper products throughout the property, and flow restrictors on everything that moves water – from toilets to laundry facilities. The hotel also offers free bicycle or shuttle transportation, to reduce the use of rental cars.

But Q hotel & spa offers luxury too. There are HDTVs in every room, comfortable, modern furnishings and decor in a soothing palette of
chocolate brown, sea foam green, cream, and brushed chrome, a day spa with pedicure and manicure stations, and a room with two massage tables. If you appreciate environmental awareness while traveling, Q hotel & spa may fit the bill when you visit Kansas City.
