    I'm going on a trip for work and plan to drive my MS.

    The hotel has a Siemen's VersiCharge 25 amp charger.

    Will I be able to charge with my SAE J1772 adaptor?

    If your charging overnight you should be good. Here are some ranges for different Amps

    Circuit Breaker(Amps) / Model S Miles of Range
    Per Hour of Charge
    100 / 58* (*Dual Chargers)
    80 / 47*
    50 / 28
    40 / 23
    30 / 17
    20 / 11
    15 / 6

    That amps/speed chart assumes 240V. Many commercial installations are on 208V instead, since that's what you naturally get from three-phase commercial power. If this charger is on 208V, then knock off roughly 13% from those speeds. Possibly more if there's a lot of voltage drop, I've often seen under 200V at public chargers.

    13%? as you said it's often under 200V. Add 20% to charging times. It might be worse if the car reduces charging amps due to low voltage.
