Beyond Superchargers - Road Tripping Resources
High powered charging stations are being built out by different groups, companies and organizations so that we can better enjoy our cars.
Tesla Sales Locations have HPWCs. 16 kW charging. Please call in advance to check availability they do try to leave the HPW(s) open for owners. Availability can depend on the local Tesla population density.

If you are considering installing a charging station please consider the most accessible, fastest and least expensive option that is available now. That is an 80 Amp Charging Station with a J1772 outlet.
Here are some other resources that consist mostly of the medium power Level II chargers:

More commonly known resources are listed below and there is a mixed variety of charging:
Here is a thread with information about how Chargepoint works: http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/just-want-verify-how-chargepoint...
Blink Network: http://www.blinknetwork.com/
(Note: Many Blink charging stations are on the blink. Check operating status in advance if it is a critical part of your trip. Some regions are more reliable than others.)
http://carstations.com/ - tracks and maps charging stations. They differ from some of the others in that they verify a station before listing it.
If you have range questions you here are some resources. You just select the car you are using and enter your estimated speed and give yourself a good buffer. This map does not compensate for crossing bodies of water properly, so keep that in mind.

Specific Resorts and Hotels with exceptional EV service:
"The Loden Hotel in Vancouver BC Canada welcomes our TESLA friends to visit the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and the new Tesla showroom on Robson Street. With two Tesla High Power Wall Connectors and a NEMA 14-50 outlet, we’ll extend your range beyond the current Supercharger Network. As a hotel guest or while dining for lunch, Sunday brunch or dinner at Tableau Bar Bistro (the neighborhood French casual favorite), we’ll valet and power up your Model S or Roadster in our gated underground parkade. We applaud our EV guests and zero emissions by offering zero valet and charge up costs during your stay. See our special rate code TSLA. For more information, visit us at www.theloden.com and www.tableaubarbistro.com"
