The VCB encourages its industry partners to take advantage of designations that recognize commitment to excellence.
Florida Green Lodging Program
The Florida Green Lodging program is a voluntary initiative of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources. The program’s environmental guidelines allow the hospitality industry to evaluate its operations, set goals and take specific actions to continuously improve environmental performance.
Superior Small Lodging Program
The Superior Small Lodging program is a marketing initiative designed to create a symbol of excellence and a quality brand awareness for smaller properties with 50 units or fewer. In order to receive the distinguished Superior Small Lodging designation, properties must pass an independent inspection process, which includes a variety of quality, cleanliness, and service-related criteria. The national organization continuously implements stricter requirements and guidelines, making the classification even more coveted.
The Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau promotes and markets these properties through The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel, various co-operative advertising programs, and on its Web site. For more information on The Beaches of Fort Myers Sanibel, visit www.FortMyers-Sanibel.com.
