For more than 36 years The Colonnade Hotel, a Boston landmark, has been hosting folks. But the reason they're in our guide, is that they've made their mark in an entirely new and meaningful way: they've gone green by being the first hotel in the U.S. to install The ElectroCide System, a green cleaning process that they apply to their laundry and so forth, that is more powerful than chlorine bleach yet completely nontoxic to humans and the environment. In their renovations, this hotel also added energy efficient, soundproof floor- to- ceiling windows which open providing guests with the option of not using cooling or heating system energies. So while it could be argued that this Back Bay spot is decidedly corporate in look (versus some of the bed and breakfast spots we tend to favour), it is the commitment to the environment that makes it super hip. There are of course all the expected amenities; pillow top mattresses, luxurious down comforters, LCD TVs, DVD players, MP3 docking stations, 24 hour room service, and same day laundry. But in addition to the green factor, we do also love that they have the city's only rooftop pool and a hotel garage (so necessary, what with Boston's legendarily cryptic parking laws.)
