We would like to thank TripAdvisor and our loyal guests for this award," said Jim Treadway, general manager of Bardessono.

One of three Platinum LEED Certified hotels in the United States, Bardessono's green initiatives include: a subterranean, geothermal system that provides heat and air conditioning to the 62 guest rooms on the property as well as naturally heats and cools the water from the earth's temperature of 70 degrees, on-site organic culinary gardens delivering fresh ingredients to Bardessono's Lucy Restaurant and Bar, ionizers used for cleaning the guestrooms, low VC paints and sprays throughout the property, a commitment to recycling both water and waste, and much more.

"Not only is seeking out an eco-friendly accommodation good for the environment, but our survey also shows that most travelers find travel experiences more enjoyable when they make greener choices," said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. "For those interested in lowering the carbon footprint of their trips, this list of TripAdvisor GreenLeaders hotels showcases properties that have a strong commitment to sustainability and are highly rated by our travel community."
