The program will cover all types of electric vehicles, including Teslas. Current, powered by GE, will provide stations to charge other car makes.

Electric vehicle owners can now road trip from New York City to Los Angeles with the peace of mind that multiple Hilton properties will be along the way to accommodate their charging needs. This is one of many cutting-edge amenities that give our customers choices to customize their stay.

Over the past year, Hilton has also rolled out several exciting enhancements to its highly-rated Hilton HHonors app, including Digital Key and digital check-in with room selection.

These charging stations are available at a range of Hilton Worldwide properties from luxury to focused service, including The Waldorf Astoria New York, DoubleTree by Hilton Durango, Hampton Inn by Hilton Reno, and Hilton Los Angeles Airport.

Hilton also plans to expand its charging program internationally in the coming year.

As part of the charging program, Hilton hotel owners can receive free charging equipment to accelerate the adoption of charging solutions at qualifying hotels and resorts.

Hilton is working with property owners to install the charging stations, with the only associated cost being installation and electricity usage.
