Four Seasons Hotels are getting charged up by installing electric vehicle charging stations at some hotels, and making the hot Tesla EV the official hotel car for airport pick-ups and local excursions.
Hotels and ski resorts have been partnering with one brand or another for years to promote an “official car”, but this is the first hotel chain I know of which has partnered with an electric car. As we all know by now, the Tesla S 85 luxury sedan is no ordinary electric car, and it proves that luxury and green can live together happily.
These four Four Seasons offer a Tesla experience to guests who wish to reduce their carbon footprint:
Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. Starting this summer, the hotel will offer four electric car-charging stations. Two are Tesla specific plugs, the other two are universal, for other models of plug-in hybrids and EVsautos. Rather than tucking these stations away in a parking garage or a back alley, Four Seasons has placed the charging stations out front, in the protected porte cochere, where everybody can see a Tesla, or even a Nissan Leaf or Chevrolet Volt getting juiced up.
Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto. In the technology hub of North America, it’s only fitting that this hotel features state-of-the-art charging stations provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to speed up the battery-charging process. This way, busy guests will be charged and ready to head off to meetings in record time.
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. The Tesla transports guests between the Kahului airport and the resort. It’s also available for chauffeured trips around the island to explore the lush unspoiled environment of Hawaii with zero emissions.
Four Seasons Hotel Miami. Guests can enjoy the views and get two and from restaurants and art galleries from the backseat of a Tesla with complimentary transportation within a five-mile radius. That includesDowntown, Key Biscayne and Coconut Grove.
Another luxury hotel chain leading the charge for electrified guests is Fairmont, with charging stations in Vancouver and other cities.
