redrightandgreenFrom the red leather headboards to the ruby red wax lips in the mini bar, red is a haute theme at Hotel Rouge. Still, at this whimsical downtown retreat, green is proving to be the new red. Thanks to more than three-dozen eco-friendly products and practices-from the exclusive use of non-toxic cleaning products to the energy-efficient light bulbs and recycled paper-the hotel also fosters a Earth-friendly premise. Another red-hot perk for Hotel Rouge’s environmentally correct guests: Reduced parking rates for anyone driving a hybrid. What a gas.
