    I am picking up my Model X in San Antonio on Saturday and plan on staying a couple of nights in town.

    There are a few hotels with destination chargers. Anyone familiar with them? I just want the safest area to park overnight in. Don't really have to have a destination charger, but I prefer to patron a location with one if possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Check plugshare.com. I've used Houston Street garage and the Marina/Convention Center garage. Both are much less expensive than hotel parking, and the people I walked by on my way out of the hotel are often still waiting for valets when I drive by.
    One of Houston Street chargers is on the top floor, which is a very non-busy area. The other one doesn't have any parking spaces adjacent to it, so in both cases, nearly ding-free.

    Drury Inn near La Cantera (NW side) is a favorite of mine when staying in SA for various events. Parking is in a garage with very wide spaces, makes for worry free nights! Not sure about destination chargers there however.

    I suspect that any hotel with a charger would be a fair choice.

    Drury Inn does not have charging. I contacted them about outlets in the garage a year or so ago and they said they had nothing.

    not as big of a deal now that there is a supercharger on I-10 north of downtown.

    Stayed at the Drury Inn for one night (they do not have destination charging), then went to the Hotel Emma for the rest of the stay. They have destination charging with valet parking in an underground garage. Very safe location. There are two Tesla destination chargers, but only one was working during my stay.

    Well, that's the nicest hotel in town, so nice upgrade - I'm surprised they had NYE rooms given the Alamo Bowl was also that night. Glad you enjoyed.
