The Cavendish, with its wonderfully central location near the theatre district, Bond Street and Piccadilly Circus, blends real luxury with a genuine green attitude.

Not for one minute do you feel your luxury treatment is ever compromised by any of the eco initiatives the hotel has used to win its ‘gold’ green award. Seeming to hit all areas; there are energy reduction measures such as efficient lighting and condensing boilers, fair-trade products are used throughout the hotel, and the restaurant’s menu features fish from sustainable sources and local produce where possible.

The Cavendish then goes the extra mile by encouraging delegates at business conferences and meetings to engage in green behaviour. The meeting package includes a carbon offsetting fee, environmentally friendly cars receive a 50% discount in the hotel’s underground car park, while non paper based communication is encouraged, all paper is recycled or from paper mills that support sustainable practices. There are recycling bins everywhere and people are proactively encouraged to use them, mobile phones can be charged with wind up chargers, staples that don’t use staples are on offer, non toxic marker pens made from recycled parts are used, indeed real attention to detail is a constant theme throughout.

Not content with this, the hotel has plans for an energy efficient life, has a green team that trains the back end staff, a new low water dishwasher is planned and the grand vision whereby everything used is recycled !

So you can cycle to the hotel, leave your bike in the secure lock up, know that energy efficiency is everywhere, everything is fair trade, and the food you eat is as ethically sourced as possible, while you’ll still receive top 4 star London luxury in a great location including excellent views of the city. We will definitely be looking to stay at the Cavendish again and hope you manage to give it a try.
