OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

As an establishment aware of its impact on the environment, Hotel Le Crystal is proud to adopt measures and standards that allow us to be at the forefront of our commitment to environment and society.

 

ENVIRONMENT


  • Using the Siemens energy efficient system with electronic key. A first in North America. The key is necessary to activate the electricity in the room;

SIEMENS SYSTEM

A TECHNOLOGY THAT TAKES CARE OF EVERYTHING! - In an era where we are more concerned about energy saving and efficient service, Hotel Le Crystal has been able to develop a state of the art technology system to provide an exemplary customer service and achieve substantial energy-efficient economies. In this context, the use of Siemens, a premiere in North America, can greatly reduce the building's energy consumption. Major investments were needed to implement the system to operate the facility.
Siemens Hotel Solution Technology not only helps manage reservations, guest management, access to rooms, air conditioning, and power consumption of each of the suites. The instructions are simple: every guest receives an access smart card upon arrival. This card allows the guest to access the different floors of the hotel, to unlock the door to his room and put on the lights and air conditioning system.
The system allows Le Crystal to be a fully integrated eco-friendly establishment. Software desert entire hotel and manages the monitoring and automatic adjustment of all systems.

  • All room keys are reusable;
  • Newspapers are now not automatically distributed to rooms (except on special request). Only few copies are left on the floor to reduce paper consumption;
  • Towels are changed at the request of guests during their stay to avoid excessive washing
  • Bed linen is changed every two days during the stay to avoid excessive water consumption
  • All cleaning products used in the hotel are biodegradable and water soluble;
  • The pool and Jacuzzi use salt water to replace chlorine.

 

SOCIETY


  • We are committed to our community by participating and offering several donations to charities that we care much about and that are making a difference in our society.
  •  We promote local artists by exhibiting their works to complement the decor of the public areas and meeting rooms.

 

HYGIENE

 

Platinum Hygiene Standards

Hotel Le Crystal has once again taken service excellence and customer comfort to new levels with the launch of our new Platinum Certified Hotel Hygiene Standard! We feel that our proactive operating standard focused on hygiene is a first for the boutique hospitality industry, providing customers hygienically optimal conditions with the peace of mind of knowing that every guest will enjoy a stay in a healthy environment!
Since we opened in 2008, Hotel Le Crystal has promoted itself as having the most hygienic bed solution in hospitality. All beds feature silk pillow covers and bed covers in triple sheeting to prevent allergies and bedbugs, and all bed linens are replaced for each check-in. In 2009, Le Crystal again took the lead in hotel hygiene in when, in response to the H1N1 virus, it became the first in Montreal to install hand sanitizing stations in all high-traffic public areas.
With its new hygiene program, Le Crystal takes both in-room and public hygiene one step further by identifying “high-touch” surfaces and items in suites, and by using hospital-certified disinfectants and other treatments to ensure they are germ free.

Hotel Le Crystal’s Platinum Certified Hotel Hygiene Standard at a Glance

  • Hospital certified disinfectant used in bathrooms and on high-touch points like remote controls, telephones, headboards and doorknobs
  • All bed linens changed before every check-in
  • Individually-wrapped extra blanket in the closet
  • Dishware washed at 140°F
  • All suites treated every 3 months with a 2-hour Ultra Violet Disinfectant session
  • Carpets routinely treated with an anti-bacterial agent
  • Routine pest control treatments for airborne and non-airborne insects
  • Anti-microbial sofa tissue in all suites (ongoing project)

 

IMPROVING OURSELVES AGAIN AND ALWAYS


With the desire to always improve ourselves, we are also working to implement the following practices:

  • Provide water pitcher in our meeting rooms to give the customer the option rather than taking bottled of water,
  • New reusable lunch boxes available as needed

Thank you for your comments and suggestions and we look forward to welcome you to Hotel Le Crystal.
