Sustainability & Diversity

NOT JUST A BUZZWORD

Saying you’re sustainable seems to be what all the cool kids are doing now, but do they mean it? We like to fancy ourselves both cool and sincere. We care a LOT about doing our little part for the wellbeing of Earth, so we put these sustainability initiatives and practices listed below into place long ago. If we may brag (just a little), we’re proud to have the highest Booking.com sustainability badge. When we say we’re an environmentally friendly downtown Juneau hotel, we mean it!

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

You are welcome here. And by “you,” we mean absolutely everyone. It doesn’t matter to us what you look like (but you’re beautiful, did you know?), where you call home, who you love, what you love, what you believe in, or any other aspect of what makes you, you. Or rather, we would never discriminate for those or any other reasons. We DO care about you! Would you like to stop by for a chat and tell us about your journey to Juneau or your journey in life? Yes, please.

The more voices we have at Silverbow, the more beautiful the music. This extends well beyond our guests to all of our incredible staff, and to those who help keep Silverbow the wonderful gathering place that it is, from plumbers to delivery drivers. We rejoice in the similarities we share (and we share a ton) and in each and every difference. Differences mean variety and variety is the sugar of life.
