Globally Responsible practices to preserve our environment and honor our communities

Each of our North American Pan Pacific properties strive for innovation and leadership in the areas of operational efficiency and the extension of product life cycle through the PanEarth program’s vision and philosophy. The culture created at each property is one of supporting local communities through donations and volunteer time. Day to day practices of the PanEarth program work towards minimizing our overall impact on the environment.

At Pan Pacific, we are committed to providing genuine care, unique innovation and having customized services available. Our PanEarth program helps to enhance the experience that our guests encounter at all of our North American properties.
