Newly Renovated Silversmith Hotel Teams Up With OpenKey For A High-Tech Guest Experience
Keyless mobile room entry arrives in downtown Chicago
"We understand how important convenience is for today's traveler. Whether it's for business or pleasure, our goal is to make sure our guests enjoy luxurious accommodations with high-tech amenities," said Eric Batis, VP Portfolio Management for Silversmith owner Ashford Hospitality Trust. "Introducing OpenKey's mobile technology as part of our services ensures our guests get the best of both worlds."
The easily downloadable OpenKey app ensures guests can receive directions to the hotel property, inform the resort of early or late arrival, access hotel Wi-Fi codes and more importantly, skip the front desk during check-in and check-out. A recent Oracle global study confirmed that 88 percent of consumers surveyed want a mobile app that supports check-in, check-out and provides a relevant and personalized experience. Further, OpenKey supports sustainability efforts in the hotel industry as keyless room access reduces the need for disposable plastic keys.
"The Silversmith Chicago, like many other hoteliers, see the value of how high-tech services can elevate the guest experience," said Brian Shedd, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for OpenKey. "We are thrilled to team up and support them with innovative mobile technology as they embark on a new chapter."
OpenKey continues to revolutionize the hotel industry and reshape the standard for guest service. The seamless transition from traditional key cards to keyless entry has made OpenKey the go-to choice for hotels going through renovation or looking to upgrade.
