Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Spark Fun at Hotel Palomar Dallas

Sometimes, you stay at hotels to recharge your batteries. (Two words: in-room massage.)

Consider the double meaning now that Hotel Palomar Dallas has installed Blink electric vehicle charging stations. Centered in a high-traffic area between the Lakewood and Park Cities neighborhoods, it’s the first Texas hotel to partner with The EV Project, the largest electric transportation project in history.

Both locals and guests can use the two charging stations at no cost (there’s public access via the hotel’s valet). Users also drive away with another perk: one complimentary lunch or dinner entree per vehicle (up to $30 value) at the adjoining Central 214 restaurant.

If you don’t own an electric vehicle, consider renting one to get even more mileage out of your trip to Hotel Palomar Dallas. The hotel’s new BLINK – The Electric Vehicle Owners’ Package is available to any EV-driving guest. Included is:

- 25 percent off best available room rate for luxury eco-friendly accommodations
- Complimentary overnight valet parking for your electric vehicle
- Complimentary use of the charging station
- $30 dining credit for Central 214 restaurant
- $25 off any hourlong spa treatment at Exhale Mind Body Spa
- Complimentary sustainable wines and bites at wine hour from 5-6 p.m. nightly

Advance reservations are required for the package, which has rates starting at $179 a night. Book online at or call 888-253-9030 and use the rate code “BLINK.” Valid for stays from now until Feb. 1, 2011.
