Since LightStay’s launch in 2009, we are proud to have saved over $1 billion by operating sustainably and carefully managing our energy, carbon, water and waste. LightStay enables us to drive efficiencies and continuous improvement across our portfolio, providing value for our owners, a better experience for our guests, and a lighter environmental impact in our local communities.
