Hotels that promise "all the comforts of home" are good -- but not as good as hotels that come with all the comforts that your home would have in your wildest dreams: infinity pools, inspired cuisine, pristine housekeeping, on-site spa treatments. For an eco-friendly take on the better-home-than-home variety, book a stay at The Crossings in Austin, Texas, where seven lodges offer decks and patios for sweeping views of the countryside; the Wellness Spa schedules massages, facials, and body treatments that incorporate organic skin care lines; the kitchen plates up vegetarian dishes made from organic, natural ingredients; and you'll spend your spare time hiking, biking, or horseback riding. It's the ultimate better-than-home-away-from-home.
