All of the resort’s team worked throughout the 6 days following the storm along with many companies whose specialties brought the hotel back to its glory this week. With their timely and professional specialties, The King and Prince is delighted to welcome their leisure, group and wedding guests as scheduled.

Keeping our “Footprints” in the Sand by Going Green

The Historic Hotels of America is a program from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  The Trust has a sustainability initiative which focuses on the importance of reusing existing buildings.  As a Historic Hotel of America, The King and Prince is a part of this initiative.  The King and Prince Resort has their own “Going Green” programs to further these efforts.

The Resort has taken the following actions:

  • Two Tesla charging stations for guest use
  • Recycling of cardboard and paper in all staff areas.
  • Recycling of batteries
  • Recycling of ink cartridges
  • Eco-friendly disposal of fluorescent light bulbs
  • Cloth hand towels provided in public restrooms to reduce paper waste
  • Donation of discarded linens to local charities
  • Donation of outdated historical print materials to local schools
  • Usage of eco-friendly cleaning products for the vast majority of our general cleaning needs
  • Implementation of towel and linen re-use program in our guest rooms
  • Implementation of microfiber cleaning system
  • In-room recycling equipped with bio-degradable, eco-friendly bags.
  • Membership in the Clean the World Program
  • Utilization of low-flow shower heads and toilets
  • Recycling options for both plastic and aluminum in-room and throughout the hotel.

The Clean the World Program recycles and distributes soap to children around the world suffering from diseases that could be prevented by hand washing.  It also eliminates unnecessary waste filling up our land fills.  From May-July of this year, The King and Prince donated 270.4 pounds of soap.  This is equal to 2884 bars of soap, which provided soap for 289 children for one month.
