HI - Boston's new facility is LEED certified and is also participating in Sustainable Travel Internationals' STEP program which focuses on sustainable processes. Not only are we taking steps to ensure that our building and our operations are as sustainable as they can be but we also have an eco-program that affords our staff and guests the opportunity to become 'better stewards of the earth and its resources.' At HI-Boston you will find great recycling stations, elevators that recapture energy as they descend, low VOC paint, recyclable carpet, low-flow plumbing, energy efficient lighting and appliances, environmental-friendly cleaning products, and motivational signs as reminders to be Eco-friendly. Just like our linen, the future of our 'Green HI-Boston' looks bright!

In a few short minutes you can walk around to Boston Common (see a Pops concert if you can!) and get to the famous Freedom Trail. This is the best way to see the sights that played a part in the American Revolution. Also see Quincy Market with its food stalls and free entertainment!
