SAUSALITO, Calif (December 22, 2016) – Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa is elated to announce the Tesla Model X as its new house car. The visionary Bay Area hotel, a member of MetWest Terra Hospitality Group, is proud of the latest technology-focused enhancement to the property and guest experience.
Taking the place of the hotel's previous house car, the recently purchased Tesla Model X will be available to guests who book/reserve the stand-out 5,000 square-foot Alexandrite Suite, a complete buyout of the property's signature residence, The Mansion or select hotel packages. Based upon availability, the Tesla with Casa chauffeur can also be reserved for a fee. Guests may use this service for airport drop-offs and pick-ups, a ride into the city, or a jaunt to wine country.
The Tesla Model X is just one of the new technological advances for Casa Madrona, one of the Bay Area's most luxurious destinations catering to an elite clientele. Proving its commitment to upscale and eco-conscience convenience, the hotel added a Tesla charging station as well as 11 EV outlets to the property. A prominent community partner, Casa Madrona will offer complimentary charging services to all Tesla owners, hotel guest or otherwise.
The newly unveiled SUV model boasts safety, speed and luxury design. It features all-wheel drive, a 100 kWh battery providing 289 miles of range, Falcon Wing doors with ample seating for seven passengers, and full self-parking capability. Model X is the SUV uncompromised. It's ludicrously fast, accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in as quick as 2.9 seconds.
"Our new house car is the embodiment of torque, technology and high-style, and it mirrors the vision of Casa Madrona," said Carmen Cruz, general manager of Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa, who was integral to the Tesla X steering committee. "The Tesla X house car program is helping to navigate—quite literally—our next-level amenities on the property."
Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa is poised on a lush hillside overlooking Richardson Bay. Located on the waterfront in downtown Sausalito, a picturesque and upscale Bay Area community north of San Francisco, the property is located just across the Golden Gate Bridge and in close proximity to Napa and Sonoma wine countries, downtown San Francisco and National Park scenery. In May 2014, a highly-anticipated unveiling showcased a number of notable highlights including the complete renovation of the hotel's historic Mansion built in 1885, the restructuring and redesign of the Mansion's eleven guest rooms including the new, standout 5,000-square-foot Alexandrite Suite and the 1,700-square-foot Junto meeting and event space, plus the renovation of its seven upper hillside cottages. All of which have been updated and perfected by a world-renowned design team, and seamlessly paired with leading, cutting-edge technology and the finest amenities. This intimate, Northern California hotel perfectly blends the amenities of a full-service hotel with the charm of a historic inn. Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa is managed by MetWest Terra Hospitality.
