The latest San Francisco hotel from Joie de Vivre is known simply as the Good Hotel. What makes it good? The 117-room hotel in the SoMa area is billed by Joie de Vivre as the "first hotel with a conscience." It offers a chance for voluntorism through the hotel's partnership with One Brick, an organization that provides support to local non-profits. The hotel also contributes to local organizations through an optional guest cash donation program and invites employees to participate in philanthropic efforts for the charity of their choice by allocating some of their paid monthly hours for those activities. And guests can also choose to participate in a carbon offset program to minimize the environmental impact of their stay.
