Porsche collaborates with InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco to expand destination-based charging network


The aptly named Porsche Destination Charging expands its network of charging stations at key locations with the installation of two Porsche Wall Chargers in the valet area of the hotel’s parking deck.


Porsche owners can top off the batteries of their electric vehicles while they indulge in a meal or stay the night in the luxurious landmark hotel.


According to Porsche, there is no fee for charging, and the service is not restricted to Porsche models. Electric vehicle owners can recharge their EVs as long as their vehicles accept a standard J1772 plug.

“We want to welcome the growing ranks of Taycan fans with charging opportunities where they already travel and play, including superb hotel destinations like the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins. The Taycan has been wildly successful as the first all-electric Porsche. We are committed to the electric future of our sports cars and part of that is investing alongside others in charging infrastructure,” said Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA) President and CEO Kjell Gruner.


In the US, Porsche Destination Charging currently includes more than a dozen locations and is planned to grow to 25 or more by the end of this year. These Porsche-branded AC chargers can be found from hotels and resorts including Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in New Mexico and Naples Bay Resort in Florida to race tracks including Lime Rock Park in Connecticut.

Porsche owners can check out the locations listed in the Porsche Charging NA app.
