Australia's first carbon neutral hotel
Alto Hotel protects the environment and leads as one of Melbourne's few resource smart and environmentally friendly rated hotels. For example we have reduced our carbon footprint to an average of 13.5kg per room, compared to estimate of 24-26kg as set by the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Council . We have then offset this remaining carbon via the Carbon Reduction Institute. We also offer free parking for guests arriving with electric or hybrid vehicles and get free recharging from 100% green energy. This and living up to our motto 'Sit Hospes Rex', (The Guest be King), has earned the hotel several awards for environmental and hospitality excellence.
