State of California Awards Green Lodging Leadership Level Status
to Mission Bay’s Bahia Hotel

SAN DIEGO, California (October 2009) – The Bahia Hotel is dedicated to protecting the environment and has earned the Leadership Level status from the California Green Lodging Program, which recognizes efforts by the California hospitality industry to minimize waste, conserve energy and protect natural resources.

“Because we are so close to the natural beauty of Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean, we feel a special obligation to make a commitment to our environment,” said General Manager Jim Greene “We’re very proud to share this honor with our sister property The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, owned and operated by Evans Hotels who strive for a Greener community.”

The California Green Lodging Program was developed to steer “green travelers” to eco-friendly hotels and resorts. The Bahia Hotel earned the Leadership Level status by keeping a written environmental policy and by meeting all seven of the program’s criteria: waste minimization, reuse/recycling, energy efficiency, conservation and management, waste management, freshwater resource management, hazardous materials management, plus environmentally and socially sensitive purchasing policies.

The Bahia Hotel’s dedication to support the wellness of the State of California “We care about the environment and our carbon footprint,” Greene said.

The Bahia Hotel offers seclusion on a 14-acre peninsula, surrounded with sun-drenched luxury in a year-round Mediterranean climate and is impeccably located on the beaches of Mission Bay and steps from the Pacific Ocean. The Bahia Hotel is owned and operated by Evans Hotels, including the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa on Mission Bay and The Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla.
