A boutique hotel with as much heart as it has character, the Good Hotel has a twofold mission: to “Be Good” and to “Do Good”. As for doing good, the hotel has committed to making itself as environmentally-friendly and philanthropically generous as it can afford. The 117 bright and funky rooms feature bed frames made from reclaimed pinewood, and the vending machine in the lobby sells accessories made out of old FedEx envelopes. The hotel’s in-house Good Pizza restaurant also offers delicious thin-crust pies delivered straight to your room. The sculptural glass water-bottle chandeliers and smart, efficient toilets that flush with sink water are also welcome details. The Good Hotel is situated in the midst of the somewhat gritty, seedy yet up-and-coming SoMa district, however you'll be only a short walk from San Francisco's central Downtown area and major public transport options. Guests are encouraged to be as “green” and charitable as the hotel; hybrid cars park for free (quite a perk in San Francisco), donations are made to several organizations with every reservation, and a “philanthropy concierge” can help you find volunteer opportunities for your every charitable wish. This is a budget chic hotel with a conscious, a great accommodation choice for design and philanthropy-conscious travellers on a budget.
