Proudly Offering Saratoga Green Meetings & Events

As a responsible member of the world community, Holiday Inn Saratoga Springs is committed to providing you a Green Meeting Alternative for your next meeting or event. Please let us know if you would like your meeting to be Green so we can work together to promote and execute your environmentally-conscious event. In addition to Green meetings, the Holiday Inn Saratoga Springs is a Tier One Green Engage Certified hotel with Intercontinental Hotels Group. This certification reflects the hotel-wide efforts to conserve water and energy, and establish exclusive partnerships with Eco-friendly suppliers.

The Benefits

Green meetings offer environmental savings: for example, using china service rather than disposables for a large group of attendees can eliminate hundreds of pounds of plastics products being sent to the landfill.

Green meetings offer a competitive advantage: meeting managers can increase their value to their organization by providing an elevated level of expertise and for implementing an innovative, environmentally responsible meeting.
