Element Hotel New Hampshire in Hanover Lebanon sounds like a place in a John Irving novel. Starwood Hotels launched Element in 2008 as their hotel brand entry into the extended stay market. I love the Element concept. I have only stayed in two properties and enjoyed both, primarily for their aesthetic and environmental design.
Element became the first major hotel brand to mandate that all properties pursue the US Green Building Council LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for high-performance buildings with energy-efficient appliances used in all properties. Recognized as an industry leader in the eco-space, Element‘s global portfolio is set to double within two years from 15 to 30 hotels by the end of 2017.

Element only has 14 hotels open after seven years. It is difficult to love Element as an ecofriendly concept hotel, unless you happen to be around one of the 13 hotels in the USA with the new Element Hotel New Hampshire and one Element hotel open in Frankfurt, Germany as of August 29, 2014.
There are several other Element hotels listed with opening dates. Element Amsterdam is scheduled to open in November 2015.
