Central CA Coast Operation Gains New Hotel Contract

Posted on February 1, 2012

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Hecker Transportation, dba as Serenity Limousine and Santa Barbara Sedans, recently landed its fourth formal arrangement for luxury chauffeured service with a major regional hotel.

The nine-vehicle operation signed on with The Wine Valley Inn in Solvang, a 65-unit boutique hotel with cottages that attracts a global clientele touring the Santa Ynez region’s world-famous wineries. Hecker Transportation received a one-year contract to be the exclusive provider of luxury transportation for wine tours, airport runs, and other leisure excursions, said Chris Hecker, the owner and CEO of Hecker Transportation. Hecker estimates the contact will generate about 40-50 wine tour runs per month during high season.

Hecker Transportation also is the exclusive luxury transportation provider for the Santa Ynez Marriott, and the preferred provider at The Ballard Inn & Restaurant in Ballard and the Hotel Corque in Solvang.

Serenity Limousine also was chosen the “Best Limo Service” in 2011 by the readers of the Santa Ynez Valley Journal newspaper.
