Sometimes when you’re traveling, just can’t help it – you need easy and fast when it comes to where you lay your head. And sometimes it isn’t even up to you where you stay. But when it is in your hands and you have a little time to do some research on the town you’re staying in and the options available to you, I’d encourage you (not that I need to!) to check out the more eco-friendly options available. Many of these may be locally-based, boutique-type hotels that will generally be more pricey (and I say, do it if you can!), but if you’re looking for something more fixed-price and standard, take a look at my roundup of the eight most green-friendly hotel chains in America.
