  • Best Green Hotels: Habitat Suites Hotel
    has to offer there are a few areas I see there s room for improvement For example there are several plastic waste baskets around the suite including one for recycling but they are lined with plastic bags not the recycling bin though Why add to the landfill problems or the resource drain with all of those plastic bags I was disappointed to see non green dish soap in the kitchenette because there are green products on the market that are easier on the environment and less scented too Speaking of scents my pillow smelled faintly like bleach so I slept on my travel pillow Though the towels are cotton the sheets are a poly cotton blend They look great but were rough to sleep on And the bed was made badly the flat bottom sheet was shifted too far to the foot so that the top of the bed wasn t tucked in And because it was a flat sheet I had to retuck it when I went to bed because everything came untucked when I pulled back the covers Well despite the signs telling you how to hang the towels if you want to use them again and to not worry about your sheets being changed if you don t put the card on your bed they didn t follow their environmental plan I got fresh sheets and towels despite wanting to uses both again The furnishings are nice the blinds in the living room give privacy and the curtains in the bedroom were perfect giving privacy and blocking light I really like the way they provide newspapers if you want one the front desk has them April 2007 Stayed for one night Had to leave All the towels and bed linens reeked of bleach Even made my non
