San Francisco hotel helps guests volunteer

Good_hotel_san_franciscoWant to do good on your next trip? San Francisco's Good Hotel helps make it possible.

Not just eco-friendly, but also socially active, the hotel will help guests arrange a volunteer experience during their visit.

The hotel works through One Brick, a local non-profit agency, and guests can tackle jobs such as planting grass and flowers around San Francisco Bay or sorting at a food bank.

But this is a place you can do good, just by checking in. The eco-friendly hotel has beds made from reclaimed wood and lamps made of recycled water bottles. A lobby vending machine's even stock with recycled items like a wallet made from an Fed-Ex envelope. The New York Times calls it Ikea goes eco.

Prices start at $89, including Wi-Fi.
