Built in 1911 shortly after the great earthquake, this hotel has a history, but that’s not what makes it interesting. It’s a model of the sustainable lifestyle. Their mantra, “Renew, Reuse, Relax,” is illustrated throughout the hotel - each unique room is furnished with items made from reclaimed and recycled materials, right down to the bedding that’s made of 75% recycled soda bottles. Recycle bins are easy to find, and even the toilets are fitted with “Sink Positive” lids. They offer complimentary bikes for getting around the city, a plus because it’s located in the trendy SoMa area.
