Tips / Travel

Want to stay in an eco-friendly property you can feel good about on your next trip, but not necessarily give up any of the luxury you’re accustomed to? Choose one of these hotels.

 

The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte

Recognized for its sustainability by USA Today, this hotel is a LEED Gold-certified property, the first Ritz-Carlton to boast the coveted sustainability status. Compared to similar hotels, The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte uses 30 percent less energy, with no undesirable side effects.

 

Alila Villas, Bali

While this property doesn’t have as well known a name as The Ritz-Carlton, it is known as the top eco-friendly hotel in Indonesia. Alila Villas is all about giving back to the local community, using local construction materials and craftsmen.

 

Proximity Hotel, North Carolina

Located in Greensboro, North Carolina, Proximity Hotel is quite possibly America’s greenest hotel, according to TripSavvy. The property is LEED Platinum certified and the sustainability initiatives include solar panels on the roof, geothermal refrigerators and filtered air systems.

 

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn

For an eco-friendly stay closer to the big city, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge provides, with its LEED Gold certification, reclaimed materials and native plants. Plus, you can’t beat the views from the suites or the rooftop bar.

 

Calistoga Ranch, Napa

This luxury resort in California uses the lovely landscape to its advantage, building around the existing trees growing on the property and heating the spa with underground thermal waters. The property has its own on-site bee hives, chickens, greenhouse and gardens.
