We’re extremely proud to bring our five-star Noodoe EV charging stations to this historic landmark hotel

Noodoe, a global leader in EV charging technology, has just completed installation of ten S1000 EV charging stations at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, one of L.A.'s most historic and iconic landmarks. As electric cars become commonplace, guests are starting to choose where they stay based on the presence of EV charging. Hotels no longer see EV charging as a perk but as a necessity, and are responding to fill this accelerating customer demand with solutions as advanced as their vehicles. Effective through December 31, 2019, the Biltmore is offering a "2 Electrifying Hours Free" holiday special.

“We’re extremely proud to bring our five-star Noodoe EV charging stations to this historic landmark hotel,” Jennifer Chang. “Our Noodoe EV OS system is as smart and sophisticated as the Millennium Biltmore. The hotel has a year of historic firsts, from hosting the Academy Awards, to JFK’s 1960 nomination speech, to welcoming the Beatles in '64 and housing the Olympic Committee in 1984. Our installation of Noodoe EV chargers in 2019 will bring the latest of sleep n’ charge solutions to the Millennium Biltmore guests and their electric vehicles.”

As an enduring industry leader in the hospitality industry, the Millennium Biltmore recognizes the latest trends in hospitality and technology and is taking action to continue to fulfill their current and future guests’ needs. All forecasts indicate that electric cars are rapidly growing from niche to common. A Bloomberg New Energy Finance report, predicts that sales of electric vehicles will increase from a record 1.1 million worldwide in 2017 to 11 million in 2025 and then to 30 million in 2030 as the price of manufacturing the vehicles continues to decline.

“The Millennium Biltmore continues to be at the forefront of delivering exceptional offerings to our modern and tech savvy travelers,” said Jimmy Wu, General Manager and Owner’s Representative of Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles. “By bringing EV charging stations to our hotel, we are providing a necessary amenity to many of our guests and expect it to become a sought after trend over time.”
