Eco Hotels in North America
From the organic vineyards of California to the wild tundra of Canada, all the hotels in this handpicked selection benefit from a unique setting, allowing you to get back to nature without forgoing any of those little extra luxuries we love to love on holiday.
1 Hotels are inspired by nature and thoughtfully designed to have sustainability at their core. Aiming to bring the outside in, common areas feature living walls and reclaimed wooden furnishings, even room keys and hangers are made from recycled materials. No stone has been left unturned at 1 Hotel resorts to ensure the experience is as eco as possible, a reclaimed chalkboard takes the place of a notepad in guest rooms and showers are on a timer to remind guests about the benefits of saving water. So whether it’s a fresh fruit snack at the stand in the lobby or sipping on a paper based bottle, 1 Hotels keeps eco ahead of the curve.
The Wickanninish was built with sustainability in mind. The owners wanted to preserve the oceanfront area in front of the hotel as much as possible and ensured all vegetation outside the building was left in its pristine state (the position of the Pointe restaurant was adjusted by a few metres to protect an ancient cedar tree). Any trees chopped down now form the walls of the lobby, library and café and stocks only ecological and organic products in its spa.
