PORTSMOUTH, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Petrol stations, it seems, are about to go the way of full-service fill-ups. Just as having an attendant fill up your BMW for you is but a rosy-hued memory, petrol itself is fast becoming obsolete. Case in point is the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel's latest offer whereby travellers are invited to fill up their car during a meal or a stay. The caveat? Their cars must require a plug, not petrol.
Leading the way for eco-minded, South Coast UK hotels, this latest offer combines two compelling ways to recharge. As guests revitalise themselves by staying the night at the hotel or enjoying a lunch or dinner in the Sealevel Restaurant & Lounge, they can access complimentary charging for their electric vehicles.
It's an appetising prospect no matter what brings visitors to the hotel. As one of the finest Portsmouth, UK restaurants open for business today, the AA-Rosette winning Sealevel specialises in seafood dishes and uses only sustainable sources. The modern, maritime-inspired décor follows the lead of the hotel's lobby in featuring a range of places to sit, whether it's alongside the wine tower, curled up in a booth or in the center of the dining room with a group of friends.
Staying overnight continues the fun in exciting ways, too. As a leading green hotel in Portsmouth, UK, the property has deftly balanced responsible hospitality with the sort of amenities modern travellers demand. So while the hotel offers charging for electric cars, recycles 100 percent of its waste and is replacing its lights with the latest LED options, guests will also find features like satellite LCD televisions in the guest rooms and complimentary high-speed Internet access in the stylish lobby. Or visitors can relax by booking a massage at hotel's full-service spa and salon. Even the pint-sized set will enjoy their stay at this family-friendly hotel in Portsmouth, UK. Spinnaker Tower, Marwell Zoo and the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard are all close by. Of course, there's always the indoor pool.
However guests choose to join the green revolution at this hotel, it starts with parking their electric cars at the charging station. From there, they can either visit the reception desk or, in a nod to the service-oriented experience of yore, call 44-23-9238 3151 to have the operating keys delivered. That may be enough to get the most stalwart BMW aficionado on the e-car bandwagon.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
