Lotte New York Palace celebrates the earth every day by embracing sustainable practices, and we’re ready to welcome Earth Day with special events on-property and in the surrounding city. After pledging our support of the NYC Carbon Challenge and adopting a number of eco-friendly operational procedures, our green hotel in New York is ready to ring in Earth Day with a special Palace Hour event.
Celebrate Earth Day at Palace Hour
Palace Hour is our way of showcasing the diverse dining and culture of New York City with treats and drinks served daily in a casual, guests-only setting in our main lobby. The Earth Day edition of Palace Hour is extra special: guests have the option of switching their room’s power supply off completely to save energy while they head down to the lobby for a fresh eco- and health-friendly treat.
