For the second year in a row, Fairmont takes the trophy for best hotel chain. The Fairmont doesn't sacrifice luxury for sustainability, nor sustainability for luxury. They've done an amazing job striking a balance so that travelers seek out this hotel as a destination worldwide. From helping event planners create eco-friendly meetings, to taking part in community projects, to reducing utility consumption, recycling and diverting organic waste from landfills, the Fairmont remains at the top of the industry.
