I'm planning a trip to San Francisco this month and I was wondering if there are any hotels that are committed to sustainability without sacrificing the usual luxuries Ive become accustomed to when traveling, any ideas?

W SF just remodeled XYZ too! If the Indian Summer that SF had last week is still around when you go you should check out the pools at either the Intercontinental or the Phoenix!

I really enjoyed my experience at the W. From the xyz Bar to the super fantastic spa, the central location coupled with the ulta-chic property made for a fantastic stay! W is part of Starwood Hotels, such as Westin, and have fantastic eco-friendly programs such as points for not accepting room service and owning several LEED certified hotels. Off topic, but if looking for one of the BEST sushi restaurants I've ever been to in San Francisco- go to Zushi Puzzle- order the Live Clams (not on the menu) they are prepared in a lemon juice and tempura-ed tentacles which will knock your socks off.

Hey Lydia, San Fran is totally the place to be for eco-friendly hotels. The Orchard and Good Hotel are both 100% green hotels, and while theyre both pretty nice I wouldnt say that they're luxurious. Your best bet to split the difference would be the Sir Francis Drake. As a Kimpton Hotel they've been consistently commended for their commitment to conservation, and its undoubtedly one of the city's finest hotels. As a bonus, they'll give you a $10 credit for the bar or bistro when you opt in to their Choose to Conserve program. Hope this helps, let me know if you need any other suggestions!
