Clean Air and Recycling

Riverwalk San Diego

Did you know? Through our recycling efforts, we’ve diverted tons of recycling/reusable materials from the landfill each and every year. With our clean air initiative, we perform annual cleaning on all air handler units and coils, and we follow a preventive maintenance schedule with meticulous records to maintain clean air for all guests.


If you have any questions or concerns about our recycling efforts or the air systems in your room please give us a call and we'll be happy to assist.
