The Hotel at Oberlin is the greenest hotel in U.S.

There are thousands of sustainable hotels in the US, but only five hotels have secured LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. One among them is The Hotel at Oberlin which is designed by SCB (Solomon, Cordwell, Buenz) and brought to shape by SMART Hotels. Owned by a US-college, this environmentally sustainable accommodation is managed by The Olympia Companies. Nestled in midst of the Oberlin city, this hotel overlooks the heritage Tappan Square and features a flexible event place along with an 1833 Restaurant. All the sustainably designed spaces and features make it the greenest hotel in the country. Moreover, it is the first hotel in country to integrate solar and geo-thermal systems with radiant temperature control systems.

A number of handcrafted furniture and other interior details made from reclaimed wood of an old farmhouse in Ohio lend this hotel upcycled credentials. There are total of 70 rooms in the property along with 6,500 square feet separate space for events and business meetings. All rooms are loaded with two queen beds, and other modern accessories including flat TV and sleek ceiling fan to provide a pleasing environment.
