We love it when the mega-chains do their part to make the world a better place. In this case, we applaud the Hyatt group for creating the Hyatt at Olive 8, the first LEED-certified hotel in the über eco-attentive city of Seattle. Highlights include a water conversation program and building reuse and recycling efforts, and beneath the green roof that provides an urban habitat for birds, bees and butterflies, you can sleep in one of the guest rooms or suites with a clean conscience. The house spa makes being responsible a pleasure, featuring "market fresh" experiences from ingredients grown in the region. After a good night's rest and an indulgent treatment, round out your stay with a meal at Urbane, whose farm-to-table menu also relies on produce and products from farmers and food purveyors around the Pacific Northwest.
