Orchard Garden Hotel, San Francisco, Calif.

This LEED-certified hotel is in the heart of what is arguably America's greenest city. Skip the car while in town and take a stylish refurbished tram, or rent a Prius to visit nearby Point Reyes National Seashore and dine at Alice Waters's Chez Panisse in Berkeley.
