    Hotel/Airport parking in Texas with Charging Stations

    Here's a thread to collect all the hotels, resorts and Bed and Breakfasts with with charging stations/ESVEs in Texas

    Note: This will obviously be an incomplete and probably not the most up to date list and people should call the hotel to make sure they have the stations there and that they actually work. It's mainly a starting place for people to look.

    Austin:

    Hilton Austin is working on getting one but isn't working at the moment

    Dallas:

    Courtyard Dallas Plano Parkway at Preston Road


    Hotel Palomar Dallas
    I can personally verify the chargers at the Hotel Palomar in Dallas as of early 2012 (J1772 chargers x 2 at 30A which are both Blink stations but the hotel should have the card to access them. Best to call and verify as when I got there, they had never used them before and had to wait 2 hours for them to activate their cards. It worked after that.)
    Also has a Tesla HPC verified 8/18/12 by W.Petefish

    I'm actually more interested in the Bed and Breakfasts with ESVEs than I am in hotels and motels.

    Good idea. We can include those as well.

    Worth noting that Marriott (like many hotel chains) actually have local owners and operate like a franchise. That means you sometimes find NEMA 14-50 outlets or similar rather than official charge stations.

    They also have a HPC now. Verified on 8/18 as I was helping the TM personel plug in the 4 Model S that were here.

    Awesome. A Roadster HPC? Did someone donate it? That will really make visiting there much easier. They said they wanted to be the premiere EV hotel in Dallas after I had trouble getting the chargers to work there at 10PM when I got there with almost no charge left and they followed through. They were very nice about the whole thing and people should definitely give them business for supporting EVs.

    Yes, Roadster HPC. Installed, from what I've heard, expressly for the Dallas stop of the Get Amped Tour.

    My understanding is that the Westin Element has J1772 charging, but I have not personally confirmed this.

    Well, I went, and the Hotel has a Chargepoint (1). Supposedly it is free, and I know that when I had my LEAF that at Chargepoint places like Whole Foods, the place of installation can make the charger FREE to whomever plugs in there. I asked the Front Desk, and parking is not free, $27 for Valet, and $20 for self park, per day, and the charger is "free" part of the parking fee.

    Also, I saw a neon green Roadster there, in Valet, but couldnt get near it, just saw it on the way down the parking garage to my level. ( I drove the Range Rover from Houston)
    Also, there was a midnite blue 2010 there, vin 932. I just saw that it was advertised in Hemmings as a consignment for the Austin Hill Classic auction that is at the Palmer Convention center Sept. 15, 2010 in Austin. Just FYI !!!
