Feel virtuous and eco-friendly while enjoying a junior terrace room with private outdoor space and views of downtown at the first San Francisco hotel built to environmentally stringent LEED specifications. Local artist Archie Held's glass water sculpture in the lobby sets the green tone, and a high aesthetic standard. A rooftop deck is open to all guests, who are invited to bring their own refreshments and take in the sweeping city views. The owner's collection of original
artwork is scattered throughout the building and the rooftop garden. Amenities include complimentary car service to the Financial District. Buffet breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner, can be enjoyed at Roots restaurant, which is supplied by organic and local purveyors. The simply styled rooms offer low-flow toilets, textiles in soothing hues of green and gold, and natural woods, along with such green features as chemical-free cleaning agents, recycling bins, and an energy-control system.
