    Here's a thread to collect all the hotels and resorts, etc., in Florida with Level 2 charging stations or NEMA 14-50 outlets with overnight charging.

    To be posted to the Google map with locations requires providing the exact address of the overnight destination.

    You can also post overnight destinations that are located walking distance from a Supercharger Station.

    Hampton Inn & Suites Sarasota / Bradenton


    Residence Inn Orlando Lake Mary
    The website doesn't seem to advertise the fact that they have chargers, but this article states that they do.

    Marriott Opens 23 EV Charging Stations


    Four Seasons Hotel Miami
    Their website doesn't seem to advertise the fact that they have chargers either, but this article states that they do.
    CarCharging Brings Electric Vehicle Charging Services to Four Seasons Hotel Miami


    Star Island Resort and Club - Kissimmee
    Their website doesn't seem to advertise the fact that they have chargers either, but Recargo states that they do.

    EDIT: Here's a google map of the locations identified to date.

    The hotel owner has a Tesla Roadster and installed a NEMA 14-50 outlet in the garage. Call ahead and the hotel will make sure it's available to you.



    Mod note: I think we can use this thread to list hotels that offer a power supply regardless if they have an actual charge station or not. Please list what type of socket/rating in your post.

    Thanks for the initiative, Larry.

    The Don Cesar in St. Pete has 2 Chargepoint stations (30amp j1772 with 110 as well) located under the stairs between the 2 parking lots. You may need to speak with the valet or the front desk to have a non electric car moved out of the spot for you. It is conveniently located so often hotel vehicles are parked there.

    Great thread Larry :)

    Great idea for a thread Larry. Do you mind if I steal this and duplicate the thread for Texas?

    Of course not.

    By the way when I come across these hotels that don't prominently advertise their chargers I contact the hotel to suggest this is not in their enlightened self-interest.

    I received this response from Marriot:

    Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

    Some Texas hotels are included.

    Also a photo of this car. Anybody know what it is?

    Got two more for you- just saw 2 plugs in the West side associates lot at the Rosen Shingle Creek. Also saw 2 free stations at the Renaissance Resort right next to SeaWorld both in Orlando near resorts and convention center.

    The Renaissance Vinoy Hotel in St. Petersburg, FL has a public charging station right out in front of the entrance (on the street). Larry's link to Marriott hotels also shows 2 charging stations at the Vinoy. btw - it's a beautiful hotel and a great place to stay in the Tampa St. Petersburg area. Lots of walking and biking paths adjacent to the hotel, and great restaurants too.

    IIRC, the two end spaces on the bayfront parking are also public chargepoints reserved for EV's (not sure if Dave was referring to those ones but they are less than 100yds from the hotel entrance). There are actually 6 spots along the bayfront but the others are a further walk from the hotel.

    Yes, Recargo puts the chargers nearby at the marina. I don't see any directly in front of the hotel.

    Vinoy Marina

    As I recall, the Marina charging stations (at the Vinoy hotel) are right across the street from the main entrance. See the photo.

    I have yet to find an app that lists charging stations by location type (hotels, malls, pharmacies, etc.) How hard is this to do????? (its not!) They don't even have something like this online via a web interface!!!! This thread is the best I have found so far :-(
