4. Carbon-neutral: Urbn Hotels Shanghai, Shanghai, China

<a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLGEO00000014" title="China" href="/topic/international/china-PLGEO00000014.topic">China's</a> first carbon-neutral stay, Urbn Hotels Shanghai wears its eco cred with pride. Fashioned from reclaimed materials, including hardwoods, house bricks and even antique leather suitcases, this cutting-edge urban retreat uses energy-efficient technologies and organic cleaning products. It further keeps its carbon footprint in check by planting trees through The Million Tree Project. On-site eatery Downstairs with David Laris has jumped on the bandwagon, using largely organic food, free-range meats and sustainable practices - even the waiters are kitted out in patchwork aprons made from recycled fabric.
