Native flowering plants, organic vegetable gardens, and fruit-bearing trees surround this environmentally friendly lodging. A member of the Green Hotels Association, it's won an impressive number of awards for sustainability. The beautifully landscaped pool is sanitized with a salt generator instead of chlorine, the rooms are cleaned with nontoxic products, and the breakfast buffet includes macrobiotic selections. The apartment-like suites are light-filled and roomy, with
vaulted ceilings and open kitchens; most have fireplaces. Two-bedroom suites have two stories. Highland Mall, a major shopping center, is just across the road. There's a business center.
