The Executive Inn & Suites is excited to announce that it has recently added an Electric Vehicle Charging Station to its long list of amenities which the hotel provides for guests.
The Executive Inn & Suites turned to Sun Country Highway, a top supplier of EV Charging equipment for the hotel industry, to purchase and install the new, state of the art 100 amp Charging Station. Christopher Misch, VP Sun Country Highway suggests that "the CS-100 provides the fastest charge times and highest power rating available, up to 300% faster charging compared to 25 amp charges. This EV station can charge Tesla's new Model S in the shortest time. This charger means business."
And business is exactly what the Executive Inn & Suites is all about. As a top Oakland hotel on TripAdvisor, the Executive Inn & Suites is focused on providing for the exacting demands of the traveling business world.
"The addition of the EV Charger gives us the ability to supply a unique service to a growing segment of the traveling market," says Mark Hochstatter, property General Manager. "Our property is only a few miles north of the Tesla production facility in Fremont and we have more and more electric vehicles in our parking lot each night."
"We're also excited about the Green aspects of the Electric Vehicle movement and providing this EV Charging Station allows our patrons the ability to make that decision to go green with their vehicles," says Hochstatter. The Executive Inn & Suites has a strong green program and the EV charging station is just the most recent addition to the program. Earlier this year the hotel took the step to add composting to their reuse/recycle waste stream.

The California Green Lodging Program started as a way to assist state employees make environmentally friendly lodging choices while travelling on business but it is useful to anyone trying to minimize their impact while staying in California, for business or pleasure.
It is not easy to become certified by the California Green Lodging Program; and particularly proud to be the only hotel in Oakland to be a member of the program. The application process includes an in-person field study using a checklist with over 120 items designed to guage the level of "greenness" of the property.
