A gorgeous hotel is hard to come by. An eco friendly hotel with nice design, even harder. This is the first of a series where we will profile eco-friendly designer hotels.....

The Good Hotel.  The bright colors in the decor combined with the natural reclaimed and recycled furniture create a fun and quirky vibe.

The couch (pictured above) is made from recycled felt blankets.

If you forgot to pack there is even a vending machine branded by ReadyMade magazine which dispenses sustainable t-shirts and wallets made out of FedEx envelopes;

These platform beds built out of 100% reclaimed pine and "Good" Bedding: bedding made of 75% recycled soda bottles.

 "Good" Amenities:  Recycling bins, "Sink Positive" toilet installations and other renewable, reusable design elements in rooms.

We love their transport provisions-
  • Six Globe® bicycles available on loan to guests (a refundable deposit applies)
  • Parking available at $20 per night (plus tax).  Hybrid cars receive complimentary parking.
If your eco-conscience is still not sated when you check out you can donate $1.50 to One Brick or offset your carbon footprint through Carbonfund.org.  

Good green effort all round! Next week... a little more luxury! In the meantime if you want to recreate the look at home visit www.designereco.com for eco friendly furniture & lighting.
