California Hotel Adds OpenKey’s Mobile Keyless Access
Mayumi, a new 35-unit boutique hotel in Culver City, Calif., has partnered with OpenKey, to offer mobile access.
The partnership with Mayumi, a boutique hotel under the umbrella of HQ Development, a Los Angeles-based developer, is the first step for OpenKey beyond hotels and into creative stay and living spaces.
“Our demographic is all about openness, sharing, collaboration, and disrupting the more traditional living experience. We’re excited to see how this product takes shape with existing and new visitors to residents in the area, and we couldn’t think of a better way to hand them the keys to our creative communal-living space than by putting access to the property residences right on their smartphones,” said Robert Herscu of Mayumi.
Mobile technology offering entry access without a key or a key card is a recent focus of technological advancement in the hotel industry. OpenKey is offering this technology in the creative living space realm.
Along with keyless access to their residences, short- and long-term occupants of the Mayumi can employ the OpenKey app to book amenities, notify the property of early or late arrival, receive property announcements and access Wi-Fi codes.
Guests at Mayumi share common spaces including a full kitchen, an expansive courtyard area equipped with work stations and dining areas including BBQ and fire pit areas as well as a shared complimentary laundry room. Mayumi provides an affordable stay alternative for guests as nightly rates starting at with special arrangements for month-to-month stays.
