Native plants, old-growth trees, and organic gardens surround this environmentally friendly lodging that feels more like an apartment complex than a budget hotel. A member of the Green Hotels Association, it's won a number of awards for sustainability. The outdoor pool, surrounded by landscaped greenery, is sanitized with a bleach-free salt generator, solar panels are affixed to the roof, rooms are cleaned with nontoxic products, and the breakfast buffet features organic, macrobiotic selections. Suites are roomy one-bedroom apartments with full kitchens; most have fireplaces. Breakfast and evening cocktail receptions are complimentary.
