A hotel built on Sustainability

Our sustainability story…

Here at voco® Grand Central we look after the planet with the same care as we look after our guests. You can relax knowing that everything from your super comfy bed to the locally sourced ingredients on our menu are designed to reduce our impact on the environment.



What you can expect from a voco™ sustainable stay




The filling of our indulgent mattress is made from 100% recycled materials! Estimated equivalent saving/reduction of 150 plastic bottles recycled per voco™ guest room, based on medium weight king duvet and four pillows per room





We’ve replaced our travel size amenities with ‘large format’ ones reducing plastic waste by 80%. As well as our amenities we’ve installed aerated showers in every guest room reducing water usage and lowers energy consumption for water heating but still giving you the ‘power shower’ experience – The perfect way to wake you up in the mornings!  If you’re happy to use your towel more than once, that would make us happy too. By hanging it up to use it again, it helps us to help the environment by saving water.




As well as replacing plastic straws with biodegradable ones, we have also swapped out plastic water bottles with large glass bottles in every room and key areas of the hotel like our Meeting rooms. Further reducing plastic waste by 3000+ bottles globally.





At IHG®, part of creating Great Hotels Guests Love®, is designing, building and running more sustainable hotels. We know that more and more of our guests want a greener hotel stay and that’s why we’ve made it easier for you to choose a hotel which matches with your sustainable values.
