Ashford Property Goes Keyless with Kaba and OpenKey System

Kaba provides its Mobile Access Solution for the Saflok and ILCO brands of electronic locks, while OpenKey provides universal front-end keyless mobile entry solutions that allow entry to hotel rooms via a guest’s smart device.

The partnership enables the two do deliver a secure, seamless platform that allows guests with appropriate authorization to bypass the front desk and use their smart device to enter their rooms. Hotel guests can now control their stay from the secure OpenKey app that is available for both Android and iOS platforms.

“Guest comfort, convenience, and satisfaction are paramount to Ashford,” said Ashford Executive Vice President Jeremy Welter. “We are excited to offer the benefit of mobile keyless entry across our portfolio of hotels. The OpenKey solution is used by multiple brands and independent hotels, which makes it especially appealing to both owners and guests.”
