The Hermitage selects OpenKey mobile key

The Hermitage Hotel

The Hermitage Hotel, the only Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond rated hotel in the state of Tennessee, has chosen OpenKey as its preferred vendor in providing guests the ability to easily access their room directly from their mobile device.

Implementing OpenKey will also allow Hermitage guests the ability to check-in to their room prior to arrival, call the front desk, confirm their identity with an ID capture for security and send their estimated time of arrival to the hotel via the app. Guests are also able to take advantage of amenities offered by the hotel through the mobile app.

“The Hermitage Hotel has been an integral part of Nashville for over one hundred years; when you walk through the halls you are taken back to another time when Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline roamed these same hallways,” said Dee Patel, The Hermitage Hotel GM. “Our goal is to give guests a rich historical experience while enjoying the latest benefits that technology can provide to make their stay more convenient and rewarding. Partnering with OpenKey to provide our guests the benefits of mobile key was an easy choice for us - we're excited to offer technology that improves the guest experience.”
