At the request of Olivia Blanco, marketing coordinator for Ogden Publications and former Natural Home intern, I researched a few green hotels in Houston, Texas. I’ve been to Houston just twice, and let’s just say it’s not my favorite city. When I think of Houston I conjure up images of a massive urban sprawl and rainstorms in 100-degree heat. However, the hotels I discovered are making me consider giving Houston a second chance.

In this green hotel you can escape the chaos and commotion of the city while remaining in the city. Settled on an 18-acre wooded oasis in the heart of Houston, this hotel offers a luxury spa, first-class fitness center, spectacular views—and more green features than I imagined it would.

Here are some of the green features that impressed me:
