LOS ANGELES—EV Mobility, LLC., a leading all-electric vehicle car-sharing platform and W South Beach, one of Miami’s most iconic hotels announced that they have signed an agreement to roll out on-demand EVs exclusively for hotel guests.
“After almost one year of negotiating an agreement with Marriott International corporate, we are excited to partner with W South Beach as the first hotel in Marriott’s portfolio. We both see that EVs as a world-class amenity will elevate the hospitality offer,” said Ramy El-Batrawi, CEO of EV Mobility.
The agreement was negotiated by Marriott International, which will lead to expansion throughout the Marriott portfolios of hotels.
At W South Beach, guests can request a car though the EV Mobility app which sends a message to the valet allowing the valet to bring the vehicle to the hotel’s entrance. The guest has the option of booking a car by the hour or for the day. Users of EV Mobility appreciate having an alternative to waiting for a rideshare and skipping the hassle of renting a car. EV Mobility anticipates they will deploy Tesla Model 3s to Marriott owned hotels across the country.
Marriott International’s portfolio of hotels has been working to reduce its carbon footprint as part of its existing 2025 sustainability goals and this latest commitment to climate action is the next step in the company’s sustainability journey.
“W South Beach is known for our stand-out hotel experiences and service. Adding Teslas through EV Mobility to our amenities adds even more value to our guest experience and supports our efforts in more conscious green practices,” said Rick Ueno, General Manager at W South Beach. “We look forward to our relationship with EV Mobility as they continue to expand throughout the rest of the country.”
