Lots of companies pay lip service to "going green", but Element Hotels is putting its money where its mouth is. The Element chain is a 2008 addition to Starwood's sprawling family of hotels and resorts, offering customers a "no-compromise, eco-chic experience". Part of that experience will soon be ChargePoint charging stations for plug-in hybrids and EVs, which will be installed at every Element Hotel -- all six of them -- by the end of 2009. Hey, it's a small gesture, and it's eminently snarkable, but it's probably more than most of the other bandwagon-jumpers have done. [BusinessWire]
