Preserving Our Planet

Eco-friendly Hotel in Charlottesville

Eco-friendly is part of who we are

At Kimpton The Forum Hotel, we are proud to do our part to care for our environment and reduce our carbon footprint, and yours, as a green hotel in Charlottesville. From recycled materials to high-efficiency cooling systems, we've made sustainability a priority.

Let's take a peek into the green practices at our LEED-certified hotel.

Clean the World

Thanks to our partnership with Clean the World, unused portions of our bar soaps don't get tossed into the trash. Instead, Clean the World recycles them to provide hygiene kits for impoverished communities worldwide, as well as areas recovering from natural disasters.
