Tesla 'destination chargers' installed across entire Crowne Plaza network in Australasia


Australian Crowne Plaza hotels boast being "the first hotel network to install Tesla Destination Chargers at all of their properties across Australasia, connecting 12 properties with cutting-edge technology for a growing customer segment."

We're told that "Tesla owners can now travel throughout NSW, VIC, ACT, WA, QLD and New Zealand with peace of mind knowing that multiple Crowne Plaza properties across the region will keep them fully charged and ready to hit the road."

Naturally, Crowne Plaza, part of the IHG Group, said this "is one of many innovative amenities that allow IHG customers to customise their stay."

Tesla owners can now simply "plug in and top up their battery while enjoying hotel facilities, event spaces or staying overnight."

Tesla Destination Chargers are available at all Crowne Plaza hotels including:

  • Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach
  • Crowne Plaza Terrigal
  • Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley
  • Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley
  • Crowne Plaza Melbourne
  • Crowne Plaza Canberra
  • Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise
  • Crowne Plaza Alice Springs Lasseters
  • Crowne Plaza Perth
  • Crowne Plaza Auckland
  • Crowne Plaza Christchurch and
  • Crowne Plaza Queenstown

Each hotel has installed two Destination Chargers, with "most locations delivering between 40km and 80km of range per hour, perfect for an overnight recharge".

We're told that "when powered by 100% GreenPower, this provides owners with zero emissions charging".

Crowne Plaza noted that "the electric car industry, with Tesla leading the way, continues to deliver sophisticated and innovative products that showcase a blend of style and sustainability, appealing to everyone from car enthusiasts, to tech geeks and environmentalists".

"Being at the forefront of the sustainability conversation was one reason that Crowne Plaza installed Tesla Destination Chargers across its network, recognising that travellers are increasingly looking for ways to lower their carbon footprint when travelling."

Leanne Harwood, IHG’s Managing Director, Australasia & Japan said: "Tackling climate change is a global challenge and IHG puts the environment right at the heart of how we operate through global initiatives such as Green Engage.

Installing Tesla Destination Chargers further supports our local commitment to sustainability and innovation, with an aim to reducing pollution and emission levels throughout Australasia."

Harwood added: “As electric cars gain in popularity in Australia it also gives us an opportunity to be innovative and cater to guests who drive them".

By providing hotel guests with even more choices to manage their environmental footprint while on the road, IHG said it is "incorporating responsible business options into the guest experience."

All you now need is a Tesla, and you're good to go!
