When you stay at the InterContinental San Francisco, you can use a Zipcar, from the eco-friendly car-sharing program. But you won't get just any old ride; you can drive the new Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid, which isn't available for purchase till 2012.
The hotel offers eight Prius Plug-In Hybrids in its Zipcar fleet and a smart charging station, which is easily accessible in the porte cochère by the main entrance.

AKA Hotels are extended-stay hotels so it actually makes sense that they have partnered up with the hot new car sharing service, Zipcar. Starting March 15, guests who check-in to AKA hotels in New York can take advantage of this special promotion:
In an exclusive partnership, a first for both companies, AKA is putting guests in the driver's seat with a complimentary one-year membership to Zipcar, the world's largest car sharing company (a $50 value). AKA is enabling guests to have a luxury nearly unheard of in populated cities such as New York, unlimited access to a car, for as little as an hour at a time.
Zipcar will also be offered at AKAs in Philadelphia and D.C.
Guests will have to apply online and membership is approved provided that you have a valid driver's license (no Britney Spears loopholes allowed here!) and a clean driving record. But after that they can pick up their digital keycard to their Zipcar at the AKA hotel's front desk.
Each hotel will also have on hand, a list of "Top Zip Trips" for that city, as well as shopping centers, beaches, ski resorts, etc. And GPS units will be available too which we find a necessity these days.
While the membership is free for one year, guests will still have to pay Zipcar rates which start at $7 and include fuel, insurance, and reserved parking spaces.
