Element Hotel – A LEEDS certified hotel property is located on the quiet west edge of Las Vegas, in the planned up-scale community of Summerlin, and only 5 miles from Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

The Element features a design highlighting bright spaces with natural lighting, an open layout, and an Eco-friendly design that is smoke free throughout.   One finds wonderful multipurpose public areas inspiring either productivity or relaxation, and food offerings with health in mind.

Element provides priority parking spots for hybrid cars.  Guest rooms reflect the smart sensibilities of going green. Each space has ENERGY STAR qualified kitchen appliances, Eco-friendly bath fixtures, and recycling bins for paper, plastic, and glass. Recycled paper towels limit waste in the kitchen, filter systems for drinking water to replace plastic bottles, and silverware and glassware instead of disposable products. Showers feature dispensers for shampoo- conditioner and body wash, rather than wasteful mini-bottles.

The physical spaces use materials that are both sustainable and inviting, from stylish carpets with up to 100% recycled content to low-VOC paint that enlivens walls without harming indoor air quality. Large windows and open layouts bring in as much natural light as possible, supplemented by compact fluorescent bulbs that shed a soothing glow while using about 75% less energy than conventional bulbs. Green cleaning products help keep Element sparkling clean and healthy for people and the planet.

All Element hotels, part of the Starwood Hotels family, pursue the U.S. Green Building  Council’s (USGBC) LEED Certification, the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.  LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

LEED was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council as a third-party certification program based on a performance-based rating system designed to accelerate the development and implementation of sustainable  building practices.

Element Las Vegas/Summerlin is only about 15 minutes from McCarran airport around the 215 Beltway and about 20 minutes from the “Strip” and/or downtown Las Vegas (caution this link has high volume sound).  An excellent “off strip” west side location near dozens of restaurants of all types, and within 3 miles of 3 different casinos; Red Rock, Suncoast, and Rampart.
