TripAdvisor has released its Top 10 Highest-Rated Green Hotels in the US, giving top honors to the Bardessono hotel in Napa Valley, California.

As just one of three US LEED Platinum-certified hotels in the US — the gold standard when it comes to eco-friendly design —  the Bardessono shows that luxury and sustainability are anything but mutually exclusive.

Bardessono Napa Valley

With 62 guest rooms, the property uses smart, efficient and innovative design principles that maximize its sun-soaked environment.

Solar panels harness the power of the California sun while large, smart windows provide a flood of natural lighting and low-e glass reduces temperature transfer into the room. Energy-efficient smart sensors also lower or raise the room temperature when guests are absent.

Furnishings are made from rescued and salvaged trees, water fixtures are low-flow and all finishes, paints, carpeting and fabrics meet low volatile organic compound standards to improve indoor air quality.

Efforts to green the hotel, however, are unobtrusive for hotel guests accustomed to the luxury treatment and with spacious rooms decked out in full amenities like gas fireplaces and bathrooms designed to double as private spa, complete with massage table and soaker tub.

Foods served at Lucy’s Restaurant and Bar are made with garden-fresh ingredients harvested from the property.
