SAN DIEGO, California (October 2009) – The Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa™ is dedicated to protecting the environment and has earned the Leadership Level status from the California Green Lodging Program, which recognizes efforts by the California hospitality industry to minimize waste, conserve energy and protect natural resources.
