Green Hotels

When we used to play Monopoly
The houses were a shade of green; hotels the brightest red
But these days’ travelers want their hotel stays
To be bright green instead!

Whether its spring break or Christmas vacation, a destination wedding or a weekend getaway, you have the power to choose where you stay.  Eco-friendly hotels power your light switches with swipe cards so they’re never left on accidentally.  Low-flow shower heads and dual flush toilets save water.  And signs remind you to hang up your towels if you wish to reuse them, saving precious resources used to wash and dry them.

Many hoteliers have taken green hotels a step further and are building sustainable vacation spots for eco-travelers with recycled and organic materials from the steel frame of the building to the shingles on its roof.  Care to check one out for your next trip?
