Greener Than Green :: The Orchard Hotel, San Francisco

With all the talk about Earth Day and reducing our carbon footprint on the world in which we travel, The Orchard Hotel in downtown San Francisco, a few blocks from Union Square, is greener than most so-called green hotels.

Its 86 rooms offers guests a cooling system that deploys the city’s famous cool breezes, natural paints and carpets, flourescent and LED bulbs, sustainable-forest woods, a key-card system to prevent guests from running their TV or lights when they’re not in the room, and more. Many guests say it feels like home because of all of these natural amenities.
