Best Green Hotels: Chipeta Sun Lodge

Chipeta Sun Lodge  
Ridgway, Colorado, United States

Located in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, in the town of Ridgway, this hotel is central to much of Colorado's playground for sports and tourism.

Historic landmarks, mountain tours, galleries, fine restaurants, hot spring pools for soaking and swiming, skiing, hiking, jeeping, and the Ice Festival bring people here year 'round. Ridgway is surrounded by cattle ranches (and even hosts a rodeo every Labor Day), giving the town the feel of the Old West.

This hotel opened with alternative energy, both passive and active, as part of its approach to business.
