What You'll Get
Before science was invented, going green used to mean chugging a two-liter of broccoli juice then spinning around a baseball bat for 30 seconds. Exercise a healthier expression of blue and yellow's love child with today's Groupon: for $74, you get a one-night stay at 968 Park Hotel in South Lake Tahoe. This deal is valid for a standard room, which includes a queen or two double beds for up to four people (up to a $269 value). The newly remodeled, modern hotel is designed with earth-friendly additions that adhere to LEED green building standards such as the use of sustainable building materials, furniture crafted from recycled wood, water-efficient plumbing, and accouterments such as organic soaps and energy-efficient light bulbs. 968 Park Hotel is a weary traveler’s oasis that offers a Zen garden, rustic lounge, ski locker room, and seasonal pool to keep fins flexible. It is also walking distance to some of South Lake Tahoe's most celebrated locales such as the Heavenly Gondola, a string of lively casinos, and private beach access to the glistening alpine lake for evening meet-and-greet drum circles with the Loch Tahoe Monster. Groupon holders receive 30% off massage services, so when not perusing the varied surroundings, let certified massage therapists knead knotted shoulders and backs with a hot-stone ($100 for 50 minutes), reflexology ($80 for 50 minutes), or Swedish massage ($90 for 50 minutes) before relaxing in cozy, earth-toned rooms. Recognized for its work in sustainability by the California Green Lodging Program, 968 Park Hotel allows you to rest in good conscience without holing up inside a cramped rhododendron plant.
