Featured eco-friendly hotels include:

Hotel Monaco in Denver – $109/night + donate used toiletries to charity
The Belamar in Los Angeles – $139/night + recycling proceeds support public transportation use

  • Green Hotel in El Salvador says:

    Another awesome place to visit is La Cocotera Resort, it’s a green hotel in El Salvador and it’s all-inclusive so if you want to go that route it’s well worth it with the beach front scenery and the secluded atmosphere.
