Churchill Hotel in Washington, D.C., launches mobile key

The historic Churchill Hotel near Embassy Row in Washington, D.C., implements OpenKey to provide its guests with mobile key entry to their rooms, remote check-in capabilities and more.

“The Churchill is a historic hotel that combines tech-savvy amenities with boutique hotel environment that offers personalized service,” said GM Noori Janjani. “We take great pride in delivering a memorable hotel experience, tailored to each guest’s needs.”

The classic hotel has been a historic landmark on Connecticut Avenue for 110 years. While maintaining its prewar aesthetic and overall charm, the property recently underwent a series of updates including the addition of modern amenities such as OpenKey mobile key technology. Through an easy-to-use app on their smartphone, guests can notify the hotel of their early or late arrival, skip the front desk by checking-in prior to arrival, and obtain their room key and hotel wireless access password.
