Maui hotel receives conservation award

The Best Western Pioneer Inn Lahaina recently received the Best Western Green Award at the Best Western International’s Convention in San Antonio, Texas.

The honor is given to those member properties that demonstrate a commitment to sustaining resources and reducing their carbon footprint, a news release said. Hotels receiving the award comply with “green” guidelines. The hotels also must meet quality and service standards to qualify.

The Best Western Pioneer Inn was one of 179 hotels out of more than 2,400 properties in the U.S. and Canada to receive the designation this year.
