Tesla Destination Charging now offered as new amenity

LA PLATA, MO - MAY 2015 - The Depot Inn & Suites 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 Model S, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home.

The Depot Inn & Suites 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, allowing them to charge their Tesla Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours like hotels, ski resorts, and restaurants. Model S offers 265 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 Depot Inn & Suites is constantly finding new ways to heighten the guests' experience. 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." Barbara Cepinko of the Depot Inn & Suites.
