but also the use of the questionably green Lexus LS 600.
Lexus claims the special rooms, dubbed the "Lexus Hybrid Living Suites," are green because they feature compact fluorescent lights, low-VOC paint, and organic mattresses and linens. While we like the idea of an organic mattress, nearly all hotels use compact fluorescent lights because of energy costs. And low-VOC paint is mandated by law in California.
So the Lexus special, in our view, is mostly overinflated hype.
A greener option if you've got money to burn? Splurge for a deluxe hotel room and forgo the car, hybrid or otherwise.
