Green Hotel

Just a few blocks from San Francisco's Union Square, The Orchard Garden Hotel will open it's doors later this month. Proud to be California's first "green" hotel, The Orchard meets the strict LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) guidelines for certification, which only 3 other hotels have managed.

With a $25 million price tag and eco-friendly features such as recycled content carpet, high tech card influenced lighting systems and chemical free cleaning products, The Orchard is changing the way we think of hotels. Beautifully zen-like with warm tones and organic bath products, the hotel prides itself on being a environmentally kind. (Oh, and they enforce a 100% tobacco free environment!)

Rates start at a fair $149 a night. A good deal for a hotel that is doing so much to change the way we get rest and relaxation.
