You can sit behind the wheel for photo ops but there will be a chauffeur driving the Tesla.
"The more research we did on the Tesla, it was incredible," Day said. "There's only 24 moving parts on the car. It's 100 percent battery-operated. It's as fast as a rocket ship because there's no delay. There's no engine that has to communicate with the drive train. As soon as you put your foot on the gas it goes. And interestingly as soon as you take your foot off the gas it slows down. So in a way it's like a golf car but its actually quite safe that way too."
And if guests really need to know, the fully-loaded Tesla with blacked-out windows, retails for about $116,000.
But what might be more valuable is the exclusivity of this ride. A Tesla house car is a novel experience that you can only get in LA at Shutters on The Beach.
"As far as we know, we were certainly the first in LA to have a Tesla as a house car and I think at this point, we're still the only ones," Day said.
Sitting in the Tesla's jump seats is a top request of guests.
The electric sedan is now available to take guests anywhere within the city of Santa Monica. It's on a first-come, first-served basis but Day said it does get booked fast. Rates at the hotel start at $495 for a superior king room this weekend.
