New Hotel, Athens
One of the world’s oldest cities is getting a serious dose of high eco-style: the 79-room New Hotel (16 Fillellinon St.; 800/337-4685; yeshotels.gr; doubles from $240) is the first property by noted designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, who are known for their cutting-edge use of sustainable products. Bamboo-parquet floors, brass-clad washbasins, and asymmetrical workbenches forged from recycled materials are just a few of the hotel’s environmentally friendly details.
