Rolling into Southwest’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel is a fun new form of transportation for hotel guests, the FanMObile. The six-seat electric vehicle quickly and whimsically transports guests from the hotel to destinations at the Wharf and the Southwest waterfront.
Designed exclusively for the hotel—and the first and only electric hotel shuttle in the city—the chauffeured car will make multiple stops between the hotel and along the Wharf’s waterfront. With ergonomic design, this green vehicle is fully loaded with comfortable adjustable bucket seating, ample legroom and weather tight doors for a pleasant, temperate ride year-round.
The FanMObile is intended to ensure that guests of the hotel can spend time at the Wharf, without the need for driving, parking or walking. “It is important to us to provide our guests with the best options for enjoying our neighborhood and the city. The FanMObile is not just a fun and safe way to visit District Wharf but it’s also environmentally friendly and fits with our continuous sustainability efforts,” said Adriaan Radder, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Washington, DC.
The easily recognizable vehicle will operate year-round with regularly scheduled trips throughout the day and evening hours. The FanMObile is complimentary to overnight guests of the hotel.
