This “hotel with a conscience” in San Francisco’s SoMa district wants you to “renew, reuse, recycle, and relax,” and they make it very easy for families to do so. Nest in one of the hotel’s eco-friendly family suites where you’ll have two rooms with simple, mod furnishings and plenty of natural light. Guests are encouraged to borrow the hotel’s bicycles for exploration of nearby Union Square, Yerba Buena Gardens, and Chinatown. This is a budget hotel, so don’t expect room service served on silver trays. In contrast, you’ll find a cheerful place that really focuses on doing good – you can even offset your carbon footprint at checkout with a donation to the carbonfund.org or help to pay for a computer through One Laptop per Child. What’s not to like about an affordable hotel that teaches valuable lessons throughout your stay?
