Pantages Hotel Toronto Centre is the city’s first hotel to offer guests free, one-year memberships to the on-demand Zipcar service.
Zipcar memberships for Pantages guests can be issued within a day and include the use of the hotel’s Zipcars and access to Zipcars worldwide.
Pantages members will be issued a Zipcard to reserve their vehicles online, via the hotel’s free wireless Internet, or over the phone. At the time of the reservation, a wireless signal is sent to the Zipcar, and guests then use their Zipcard to unlock the door and retrieve the keys.
Pantages’ Zipcars will be kept in the hotel’s underground parking area. In Toronto, there are over 100 Zipcar locations and 252 vehicles. Driving rates include gas and insurance.
