PORTLAND, OR—Provenance Hotels, with six locations in Washington and Oregon, has partnered with Zipcar and Tesla Motors to make it easier and more affordable for guests to use alternative transportation when visiting the eco-conscious cities of Portland, Seattle and Tacoma.
To incentivize guests to try car sharing by becoming new Zipcar members, Zipcar and Provenance Hotels have partnered to offer $50 in free driving credit when travelers sign up for Zipcar’s Occasional Driving Plan or a Monthly Rate Plan of $6/month. Guests who are already Zipcar members can enjoy $15 in free driving.
Two new Zipcars—a BMW X1 and a Cadillac ATS—are available at Hotel deLuxe. Parked in the hotel’s lot, they are available for Zipcar members to use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Reservations can be made via the Zipcar app on members’ smartphones, online or by phone. Zipcar discounts for guests of Provenance Hotels can be accessed through the hotels’ websites and links included in guest reservation confirmations. Guests signing up for Zipcar must apply online for membership prior to their stay and have their Zipcard on hand for their reservation.
Provenance Hotels has also partnered with Tesla to install two Tesla high-power connectors and one standard electric vehicle charger in each of the parking garages at Hotel Max in Seattle, Hotel Murano in Tacoma and Hotel deLuxe in Portland. These EV and Tesla charging stations are available to both hotel guests and for public use with no extra charge beyond standard parking fees. Tesla owners can locate these chargers using the Tesla navigation app on their smartphone phone or in-car display. Tesla charging stations will also be added to Hotel 1000 in Seattle in the near future.
