When Hilton Worldwide announced plans for an electric vehicle charging program in partnership with Tesla and GE, Tyler Misko, General Manager of Hilton Garden Inn Kennett Square, took notice. Tyler realized that no other hotel in the area had EV charging stations and he wanted to be the first to offer the amenity to guests.
The Hilton Garden Inn, located just off of Route 1 in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, has two Tesla Wall Connectors for charging Model S or Model X cars and a GE charging station with a universal J-1772 connector that can charge any production electric vehicle.
Kennett Square is in the heart of the picturesque Brandywine Valley of Pennsylvania and is a destination for tourists visiting Longwood Gardens which is less than one mile from the hotel. The quaint town is known as the Mushroom Capital of the World. Mushroom farms in the area produce over a million pounds of mushrooms a week and an annual Mushroom Festival is held the weekend after Labor Day.
