HERNDON, Va., June 2, 2022 -- Audi of America and luxury lifestyle brand, 1 Hotels, is expanding its partnership to include three new hotel properties opening in San Francisco, Nashville and Hanalei Bay, Hawaii in 2022. The Audi e-tron is now the Official Electric Vehicle of seven 1 Hotels locations in the U.S. including Brooklyn and Central Park, New York, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and South Beach, Miami.
Hotel guests at each of these locations will be able to experience the Audi e-tron by taking advantage of the hotels' house cars through the guest shuttles and chauffeured drives. 1 Hotels has curated local excursions for guests to enjoy Audi e-tron test drive experiences, at each of the hotels.
Additionally, to celebrate the opening of 1 Hotel San Francisco, Audi and 1 Hotels have curated a display at Goodthings - the property's retail store, featuring select products from brands such as Vintner's Daughter and Melanie Abrantes Designs that are also featured in the Audi City Guides. In 2021, Audi launched the City Guides to spotlight eco-conscious, like-minded businesses and retailers in markets across the U.S.
The Audi and 1 Hotel San Francisco display will feature products that reflect both brands and were chosen to either enhance the guest experience, or that use materials that are natural and sustainably sourced. Vintner's Daughter and Melanie Abrantes Designs are local to the San Francisco Market, underlining 1 Hotels' mission to showcase the beauty of the surrounding natural environment and to highlight sustainable makers and designers.
Collaborating with 1 Hotels strengthens Audi's mission to support partnerships with like-minded organizations that stand for living progress and creating a more electrified and sustainable future. Both brands share a commitment towards electrification, more sustainable mobility, investing in community projects, giving back to society and the environment, and also the responsible use of resources as part of a larger effort to becoming net-carbon neutral.
As part of the partnership through the Audi Preferred Benefits program, Audi owners will be able to enjoy discounted rates when they book a stay at any of the following 1 Hotels properties in: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Nashville and Hawaii.
As the first mission-driven hospitality brand, 1 Hotels' commitment to safeguarding the planet highlights every aspect of the brand from design, food and beverage to programming and activations. 1 Hotels is a brand, a cause, and a platform for change.
This year, Audi and 1 Hotels will collaborate on events similar to the intimate Earth Month dinner hosted at Bloomsbury Farm, that featured signature dishes from 1 Kitchen, the soon-to-open restaurant at 1Nashville.
