Omni Richmond Hotel
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Omni Richmond Hotel
The Omni Richmond Hotel is a 361 room luxury hotel, where you will
enjoy superb amenities accented with the touches of rich American history, tradition and the most elegant of guest room accommodations. Perhaps best of all, fine dining, shopping and entertainment options are available right outside of our front door, in historical Shockoe Slip.
Our Green Team is a group of Omni Richmond Hotel employees representing different departments within the hotel. Our collective objective is to make our hotel more environmentally friendly while maintaining the 4 Diamond Standards for which Omni Hotels is known. We are also committed to educating our co-workers about the financial and environmental impacts of ‘green living’ at home and at work.
