I am informed by the Olive Tree Hotel that it is a green hotel in a green building. Among the efforts undertaken to that end include collecting rainwater for recycling, the use of solar panels, and the installation of low-energy lighting.

The Olive Tree Hotel has two food and beverage outlets. Selah (presently under renovation, will further update on this outlet soon) is their coffee house. It is located on Level 1 (ground floor) and is open daily from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. On Level 2 is the Sukkah Coffee House, which is the main eatery at the hotel.
