TripAdvisor has named the 10 highest-rated green hotels in the U.S. using data collected through an eco-survey of more than 2,100 users. Bardessono, a boutique hotel in Yountville, Calif., was named the top green hotel by respondents. The property boasts a subterranean geothermal system that provides heating and air-conditioning, as well as two onsite gardens that supply produce for the hotel’s Lucy Restaurant and Bar. Allison Inn & Spa in Newberg, Ore., was the second-highest rated green hotel, thanks to its living eco-roof, gardens and refillable glass water bottles in every room, among other green features. Other hotels on the list include The Lenox Hotel in Boston, Cedar Glen Lodge in Lake Tahoe, Calif., and Montage Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. Visit the website for a complete list of honorees.
