Good Hotel

The Good Hotel is a hip San Francisco hotel that practices philanthropy and believes in doing good for the planet. The eco-friendly hotel décor features reclaimed and recycled construction materials. Vending machines in the lobby are stocked with wallets made from FedEx envelopes and are one example of our inventive ideas to promote a good lifestyle.

The Good Hotel is as fun as it is inventive. You’ll find humorous touches like “Be Good” written on the walls of your room...

Location
The Good Hotel is located south of Market Street, in the SOMA district, one of San Francisco's youngest and most stylish areas. SOMA is filled with a vibrant nightlife, artist lofts, and frayed-around-the-edges urban chic shopping.

The Hotel is a member of 'Joie de Vivre Gives'
Joie de Vivre Hotels is a grass roots organization that strives to have a positive impact on the community. As an extension of 'Joie de Vivre Gives', each hotel participates in the 'You Can Make a Difference' program launched in April of 2008. The primary objective is to engage guests by giving them the option to add an additional $1.50 of their total bill for each night they stay. Guests are able to opt out of this program at check-out. The Good Hotel's philanthropic partner in the 'You Can Make a Difference' program is 'One Brick', a grass roots volunteer organization that provides support to hundreds of local non-profit and community organizations.

Overall Rating: ★★★★★ (5)

Energy Rating: ★★★ (3)
Staff Comment - We have energy efficient lightbulbs in all rooms. Staff is also aware of the fact that all lights should be turned off when guests are not in the room.

Water Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The Good Hotel is very conscious of water consumption and practices conservation in many unique ways. We have a sink installed on the top of the toilet that is used to save water. When the toilet is flushed, the clean water goes through the spout so guests can wash their hands with this water before it goes to fill the toilet. We also have a rain reserve that catches the rain water from the roof that we then use to water our plants. We also use all organic cleaning materials, practice the re-use program for sheets and towels, and have plants on-site that require little water and are native to the area.

Disposal Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The Good Hotel has recycling bins available to all guests and staff. A majority of materials we used in the creating of the rooms and lobby were made from recycled materials from local reclaimed hardwood for the bed frame to chandeliers made from recycled glass water bottles. All the disposable materials we have in our restaurant is bio-degradable. We also have dispensers instead of individual containers for our bath products to cut down on waste. The product we use however, is local.

Eco-Active Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The Good Hotel encourages staff and guests to recycle but we also encourage our staff and guests to volunteer. Each employee gets a paid day every three months to volunteer at an organization of their choice, although we usually volunteer as a team. We also have a calendar of volunteer events available to our guests in the lobby. We also have bicycles available to our guests that are free for them to use to promote the use of bicycles in SF. We also have the Muni, Bart, and SF bicycle map on the wall in the lobby for guests to see. On top of that, we offer free parking for all bicycles, and hybrid or biodiesel vehicles!

Protection Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The Good hotel works a lot with the local community. We focus on building relationships with local non-profits as well as attempt to work with local businesses as far as suppliers. We have planted a few plants outside our restaurant and use them in our restaurant. We also have information about inexpensive as well as local, sustainable businesses available to our guests during their stay.
