The BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel 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 BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel turned to Sun Country Highway, Best Western’s Endorsed Supplier of EV Charging equipment for the Brand, 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 BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel is all about. As Oakland’s #1 Hotel on TripAdvisor in the Oakland market place the BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel 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 BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel 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 BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel is owned and managed by East Bay Hotels, operating and contributing to hospitality in the Bay Area for over 30 years. In addition to the Bayside Hotel, East Bay Hotels also owns and operates a sister property the Executive Inn & Suites next door on Embarcadero Cove and an additional property the BEST WESTERN PLUS Executive Inn, in Rowland Heights California.
