We are working to build on our culture of sustainability. As a global company, Starwood has the size and scope to make a real difference.  Sustainability makes good business sense. Not only can we save money, but our guests and customers increasingly want it, and our associates are passionate about it.


"Eat Well' with Our Local Honey

Staying true to The Westin brand's six pillars of well-being: eat well, sleep well, play well, work well, feel well and move well. In 2016, building on the brand's eat well pillar, The Westin Charlotte installed rooftop bee hives to cultivate locally made honey. Our meeting professionals can help you incorporate this SuperFood into a variety of banquet menu options.
