MONTREAL, June 21 /CNW/ - Le Centre Sheraton Montreal has partnered with the City of Montreal's public bike system and is sponsoring the BIXI station located at the intersection of Drummond and Saint Catherine streets. By doing so, Le Centre Sheraton Montreal is helping to promote increased usage of the city's public transport system and contributes to the protection of health and the environment.
This association will enable guests of the hotel to have access to BIXI-keys to move about whether it is to get to an important business meeting or to simply tour the city in a more ecological way. Le Centre Sheraton Montreal is currently the only hotel in Montreal to offer this service to its guests.
Le Centre Sheraton Montreal is a recipient of 4 Green Keys awarded by the Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) for its strong environmental programs. Introducing this new service just in time for summer, encourages guests to move about and visit Montreal by bicycle rather than using a less environmentally friendly means of transportation. With the implementation of this new initiative, the hotel is in line with the environmental values of its parent company, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
