Eco-friendly hotels on the rise

The trend towards stylish simplicity has been going on for a while now and this is a new angle to it. ALT Hotels, a hotel chain in Canada has opened its first eco-friendly hotel in Montreal, that will be chic and stylish to look at but will use advanced technology to save energy and follow other eco-friendly procedures. Springwise reports that the hotel will use the earth's temperature to help heat and cool the hotel, use energy efficient lighting and recover heat from commercial washers. The hotel has saved money on using innovative methods of construction, such as pre-fabricated rooms that are built off-site and are assembled by the furniture manufacturer while the hotel was being constructed.
