The Riverside Hotel | A Designated Florida Green Lodging Destination

If you haven’t guessed already- we LOVE making Sunny Florida vacation dreams, come true! Part of our commitment to ensuring our Guests have the best experience is doing our part in conserving and protecting Florida’s natural resources.  

With our dedicated Chief Engineer, Dan Spates, leading the efforts, we are proud to announce we have officially been awarded Florida Green Lodging Designation by the State of Florida!

Our Official Florida Green Lodging Designation Certificate 


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida's natural resources through the Florida Green Lodging Program. The program's environmental guidelines allow the hospitality industry to evaluate its operations, set goals and take specific actions to continuously improve environmental performance.

To become designated, facilities must conduct a thorough property assessment and implement a specified number of environmental practices in five areas of sustainable operations:

  • Communication and Education (Customers, Employees, Public)
  • Waste Reduction, Reuse and Recycling
  • Water Conservation
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Indoor Air Quality
