The Glen Oaks Big Sur in California is a shining example of how sustainable changes don't have to break the bank for a hotel, Glenn Haussman says. The lodge went from charging $75 per night to $225 after renovating with sustainable materials for about $15,000 to $20,000 per room. "There is change going regarding sustainability in our industry. In 1999 the idea of sustainability was, it was expensive and difficult and may not stick around. Now we are very much in the phase of doing what we did but causing less damage while doing it," said Craig Palacios, architect, sustainability consultant and adjunct professor at the University of Las Vegas.
