Guests staying at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes can cruise around in style thanks to an exclusive partnership with Corsa HQ, a luxury car rental service.
Hotel guests can choose from a fleet of vehicles to rent during their stay, selecting from the Corsa HQ inventory of brands including Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bentley among others.
“At The Ritz-Carlton, we pride ourselves on providing anticipatory services,” said Greg Durrer, hotel manager, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. “As we begun to see a trend in guest preference for self-driving opposed to using car services, we established a partnership with Corsa HQ to offer access to premium vehicles aligned to what our guests expect from The Ritz-Carlton.”
According to Durrer, the partnership was designed and curated to the interests and standards of Ritz-Carlton guests and is a perfect addition to the brand’s amenities and facilities including its gourmet dining concepts, spa and golf course.
“Although our guests are not back to their full pre-pandemic travel habits, they are looking for unique experiences with enhanced safety protocols,” he added.
Guests can select from various per-day rental options including Premium Sport or SUV rentals ranging from $395 to $595 or Exotic Sport car or Executive Luxury car rentals ranging from $995 to $1,195. The car rental experience also includes a $50 Ritz-Carlton gift card with Premium Sport and Premium SUV rentals or a $100 Ritz-Carlton gift card with Exotic Sport and Executive Luxury rentals.
“Every rental is professionally detailed down to the leather and Corsa offers unparalleled white glove concierge service with on-site check-in at the hotel,” Durrer said. “With an expansive fleet of vehicles, Corsa also allows guests to test drive vehicles for up to four hours and lets drivers switch cars halfway through their reservation based on the length of rental and fleet availability.”
Guests can reserve rentals via phone, email or website, with available vehicle inventory updated in real-time. Corsa HQ also offers a Black Card Membership for access to all vehicles with no blackout dates.
Additionally, there isn’t any branding to indicate the vehicle belongs to Corsa, so drivers can feel as if they’re driving their own car, elevating to the overall experience.
“Whether guests are visiting to celebrate a milestone event, want to gift a lavish experience or just want to treat themselves, their vehicle is ready for them upon their arrival. The guest does not have to worry about leaving the comfort of the hotel to pick up or return the rental,” Durrer said.
He explained that along with pent-up travel demand, guests desire exclusive and luxurious experiences during their hotel stays, which this partnership fulfills.
“We are proud to say that this partnership works so well for multiple reasons,” Durrer said. “The first being that Central Florida is notoriously known to be the home of many exotic car owners. With the area’s consistent warmer weather and temperature, the driving climates are ideal year-round. Additionally, and attesting to this, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes annually hosts a luxury lifestyle high-end car show, called Festival of Speed. This show is famous for its impressive and unique car showcase held on our beautiful grounds.”
Durrer said that The Ritz-Carlton is always looking to expand and build on its partnerships, and it’s something it has under consideration with Corsa HQ, but cannot share any confirmed details or messaging just yet.
“If there is a dream car our guest wants to rent, Corsa HQ enables us to make that dream a reality for our guests,” Durrer said.
