For those who travel as green as they live, the Green Vacation Hub online resource allows you to search and select "green" accommodations around the world. We clicked the US, then IL on the world map and our search came up with two Chicago spots: the Hotel Allegro and Hotel Monaco.

What defines each location as green varies, but here's an example list (from Hotel Allegro):

* Energy-efficient lighting
* Energy-efficient laundry
* Linen and towel reuse program
* Water-efficient laundry
