Relax and rejuvenate at the Orchard Garden Hotel, San Francisco’s innovative ‘green’ boutique hotel. Nestled in the heart of San Francisco, Orchard Garden Hotel is California’s first generation of true eco-friendly hotels - built to the national standards for green buildings developed by the USGBC, the first in California to achieve LEED-NC rating. The Orchard Garden Hotel was designed to achieve LEED certification for energy use, lighting, water and material use as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies. It verifies environmental performance, occupant health and financial return. Roots restaurant will be offering a $7.00 Organic specialty cocktail – as well as our House wine for $5.00 per glass.
NRDC is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 1.2 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. With the support of our members and online activists, NRDC works to solve the most pressing environmental issues we face today: curbing global warming, getting toxic chemicals out of the environment, moving America beyond oil, reviving our oceans, saving wildlife and wild places, and helping China go green. NRDC's renovation of a 1920s high-rise building in San Francisco received LEED Gold certification without costing more than a traditional renovation.
