    Over in the local sections there's some notes for specific cities implementing charging stations:

    St. Petersburg - Would be helpful if the city published a list of locations.
    Sarasota - Although not all the stations the city is touting seem to be there yet!
    Venice - Pleasant locations and at restaurants.

    My wife and I are heading to Tampa/St Pete/Sarasota area this weekend. Originally my wife booked a random hotel, then asked if we were taking the roadster. I pointed out that it would be awkward to sit around while its charging and that we should have booked a hotel with a charger. She now tells me we can change the booking if I know of a hotel. "No problem," I answered, "I have google to help me!" Well guess what? I can't find a convenient list of hotels in the Tampa area with chargers! You'd think this would be built into chargepoint or plugshare or even google, but I couldn't find it. Anyone have any suggestions? I am not entirely sure where we are actually going (its a friend's wedding) so a list would be great.

    thanks in advance...

    Hi Jordan,

    Here's some ideas:

    St. Petersburg:
    Loews Don CeSar Hotel


    Sarasota:
    Hampton Inn - SRQ Airport

    I used the Recargo application to search for these locations.

    If your're in Sarasota and your schedule permits, give me a call. Maybe the four of us can get together for drinks.

    Regards,

    Larry
