Partridge Inn Adds Tesla Charging Station
The Partridge Inn has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity – Tesla Destination Charging. Tesla High Power Wall Connectors add 58 miles of range per hour to the Model S, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home.
The Partridge Inn joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla’s Destination Charging Program. Tesla partners with hotels, resorts and restaurants around the world to offer High Power Connectors as an amenity for visitors. This allows Tesla owners to charge their Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours like hotels, ski resorts and restaurants. Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours.
“The Partridge Inn is constantly finding new ways to heighten the guests’ experience,” said general manager Lloyd Van Horn. “By combining leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to provide outstanding service and offerings, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient charging experience during their stay.”
The Partridge Inn and other Tesla Destination Charging locations are hosted on Tesla’s interactive webpage and were recently GPS located on Model S’ navigation through a free software update sent wirelessly to the car. Tesla owners are now able to use the Model S 17” touchscreen to easily plan trips and locate the property.
The Partridge Inn has just undergone a multi-million dollar renovation, where the hotel’s 144 guest rooms, hallways, all verandahs and balconies and the first floor porte-cochère and bathrooms have been redesigned. The latest unveiling is the hotel’s sleek lobby, which now includes a market and community counter. The hotel is now in the final phases of renovations where the hotel’s restaurant, P.I. Bar & Grill, the second floor bar, and public spaces will be designed to reflect a modern, upscale environment. Expect renovations to be complete by November 2015.
