In 2007, a survey commissioned by the Element extended-stay brand of Westin Hotels found that 59% of frequent travelers (minimum of three hotel stays in past 12 months) admit to slipping from their typical "green routines" during their hotel visit. The survey found that when staying at a hotel, 75% of travelers expect fresh sheets and towels daily, 63% are more likely to leave a light on when absent from their hotel room than at home, 70% open a new mini-bottle of shampoo/conditioner every time they shower, and 62% said that they are less efficient with their energy and water use in a hotel because they "don't have to pay for it" like they do at home.
