When you travel, you want to stay somewhere that feels like a home away from home, a place where you can relax, unwind, and feel welcome. What if you could do all of that while also making a positive impact on the environment and the community around you? That’s where INNhotels comes in. When you stay at INNhotels, you’re not just checking into a hotel; you’re entering a place of exceptional hospitality, eco-tourism, and community development.

This family of independent hotels, which started with a single property in Jasper, Alberta, has grown to include 10 hotels throughout Alberta and British Columbia. But despite their growth, they’ve never lost sight of their core belief in sharing a pristine, natural environment like Jasper National Park with their guests.

At the heart of INNhotels’ commitment to sustainability is the Sustainable Tourism 2030 Pledge. This is a global movement of individuals, businesses, and organizations within the tourism and hospitality industry. They believe tourism has a tremendous opportunity to become a force for good and change the world.

INNhotels has been doing business differently for over 50 years. All 10 of their hotels are Green Step certified in both Alberta and British Columbia, and they have on-site “GreenTeam” ambassadors at every property to ensure that each of their properties become consistent in the pledge to Sustainable Tourism.

INNhotels takes extreme care to ensure that the best practices are used at each of their properties, remaining focused on their pledge to Sustainable Tourism. They use recycled microfiber sheets, enviro-friendly and biodegradable amenities, as well as cleaning chemicals. They’ve implemented “keep your towel” and other policies to reduce water and power consumption. They also offer reusable water bottles and biodegradable food containers, straws and garbage bags.

INNhotels is also a proud supporter of Soap For Hope, donating used amenities to the organization to be upcycled and melted down for reuse and then sent to well-deserving charities like food banks, women’s shelters and kids’ backpack programs.

INNhotels truly cares about the communities they operate in. Over the years, they have donated millions to charity and have recently created the Levasseur Community Trust to continue the charitable legacy of the Founder Gerry Levasseur. The hotels donate items whenever possible such as beds and linen. Staff get engaged as well by participating in garbage cleanups, bee-seed donations, and by hosting community dinners. Their community initiatives, like ShopINN local and The Rocky Mountain Art Tour, promote and support local businesses and artists within their communities, promoting tourism and community growth in all their Alberta and British Columbia properties.

Even with an impressive roster of Stay Green and community initiatives, what really sets INNhotels
apart is their commitment to providing exceptional hospitality. When you stay at an INNhotel, you’re entering a world of warm, welcoming hospitality, where every detail of their service makes you feel at home. From the cozy rooms to the inviting public spaces, everything about an INNhotel is designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

At INNhotels, they’re not content to be just another hotel chain. They’re a global leader in sustainable tourism and community development, offering a hotel experience that goes beyond the ordinary.
