DALLAS & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Tilden Hotel (www.tildenhotel.com), a Point Hospitality Group property located in San Francisco’s historic Tenderloin district near Union Square, has selected OpenKey (www.openkey.co) mobile key technology to elevate their guest experience. OpenKey is the industry standard for universal mobile key access in the hospitality industry.
While OpenKey is known for its flexibility and security of its digital key, the complementary consumer app also provides guests with capabilities such as hotel check-in directly from their smartphone, directions to the hotel and the ability to book amenities.
“We are excited to offer OpenKey to our guests at Tilden Hotel,” said General Manager, Jason Webb. “As a pillar of the historic Tenderloin district, we strive to offer an unassuming, stylish and organic appeal with refreshing surprises. By evolving from plastic keycards to mobile keyless entry, OpenKey aids us in achieving this goal. At the Tilden Hotel, we strive to pay homage to the city’s history and future with each part of our hotel, and by adding this technology, we are doing just that.”
“The modern, minimalist décor the Tilden Hotel offers is in demand. Mobile key is a perfect complement to this appealing environment and unique guest experience,” said Brian Shedd, OpenKey’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Not only does the OpenKey app provide hotel guests the convenience of keyless entry, it also reduces waste of needing non-biodegradable plastic keycards – which is both a cost savings for the hotel and good for the environment. We are proud to be working with the Tilden – our first San Francisco hotel.”
The boutique hotel originally boomed in the Depression Era and was known as an affordable neighborhood hotel for working class San Franciscans. After being redesigned by Studio Tack, it reinterprets ideas of minimalism with a refined sense of composure. The relaxed, sophisticated guestrooms illustrate the hotel’s effort to be an organic, timeless and minimalistic hotel.
