 As a boutique hotel with the mission of protecting our natural environment, the Riviera Hotel has combined green operations and maintenance practices with her hotel services. In 2008, the Riviera Hotel began a series of on-going improvements to streamline the building's efficiency, and minimize environmental impact. The Riviera Hotel has successfully reduced electricity and water usage, and adopted sustainable purchasing and waste management policies. 

The replacement of the hotel's chiller early in the LEED planning phase was a substantial investment for a small boutique hotel, but ultimately resulted in significantly improved energy performance and cost savings. A variety of lighting controls in every guest space offer cozy lighting levels while also taking advantage of daylight and minimize electrical use. The vegetated roof garden serves as more than a retreat for guests by also insulating the building and saving energy by reducing heating / cooling needs.
