"Luxury group Fairmont Hotels will plunge guests into darkness at the end of the month, when they turn out the lights at all 60 of their properties to raise awareness about climate change.
On 27 March at 8.30pm, Fairmont Hotels across the globe will switch off in support of 'Earth Hour', the world's largest climate change initiative.
Brian Richardson, Vice President of Brand Marketing & Communications at Fairmont Hotels, said: "It furthers our ongoing support of environmental awareness and demonstrates energy conservation can go beyond just turning out the lights for an hour - it's about promoting a low carbon future."
To mark the occasion, a number of special green-themed events will also take place at the hotels. Those booking a stay at the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeitin in Hamburg can experience the ambience of a romantic candle-lit dinner at one of its award-winning restaurants, while guests at the Fairmont Monte Carlo in Monaco may choose to feast on a specially-prepared organic sushi menu, made entirely from sustainable produce harvested from the hotel's surrounding gardens.
For something a little more energetic, guests at the Fairmont Turnsberry Isle in southern Florida can take part in a three-mile run to raise money for a local environmental charity, before enjoying a complimentary glow-in-the-dark cocktail at the hotel's exclusive Lobby Lounge."
