Fodor's Review

Lovingly remodeled in 2012, this green boutique hotel—across from the U.C. campus—is fresh, stylish, and completely eco-friendly. The American clay walls literally clean the air, the chic drapes are made from recycled soda pop bottles, and the rich wooden floors come from sustainably harvested trees. The decor is mostly soothing greens and browns, and the bedroom furniture is designed to fit the 1920s-style building.
