I have a strong value for recycling and minimizing waste. I also love creativity and ingenuity. Hence, to come upon a hotel which artfully repurposes materials into a smart, aesthetically delightful, and welcoming environment is fabulous and RE-freshing! This is the visual kindness The Good Hotel extended to us during our stay.
Most of their furnishings are made from reclaimed and recycled materials, making them San Francisco's first repurpose-focused boutique hotel. Their slogan is “Renew, Reuse, Relax." And the clean, calm spaces support that goal. Others laud their efforts as well. For example, Home+Design put The Good Hotel at #1 for “Coolest Hotel Designs in California!" In addition to being fabulously cool, it's also in a great location: South of Market. This area allows one to walk to awesome restaurants as well as the vibrant Union Square 1.3 miles away! (We recommend ice skating in the winter.)
An added perk of choosing The Good Hotel is the ability to borrow bikes! Yes, you can explore the beauty of
on bikes! This option makes Neel jump for joy!
So, if you get a rush from taking your recycling out or you just like the idea of an innovative spot to explore San Francisco from, consider The Good Hotel. Rooms start at $160 USD.
As we reflected on our Good stay, we wrote this poem. It represents the way we felt The Good Hotel taught us new things, as if we were its temporary students. Enjoy!
P.S. There's a rad photo booth in the lobby and a collection of visitors' photo strips on a nearby wall! Fun!
