The Courtyard Bucharest Floreasca in Romania has implemented Assa Abloy Global Solutions’ advanced security access platforms. A recently opened hotel located within the business area of Bucharest, the Courtyard is able to provide each guest with both seamless and secure access to their guestrooms using VingCard Signature radio frequency ID and VingCard Flex door locks equipped with mobile access functionality. 

Courtyard Bucharest Floreasca has also further ensured a secure and convenient environment throughout the property with the inclusion of panic bars, door retainers and Elsafe Zenith Electronic safes.

By implementing VingCard RFID locks, the hotel was able to ensure guest safety through advanced data encryption protocols while adhering to hotel brand requirements for providing guests with digital key access abilities. Guests can use personal devices as a convenient digital key that instantly allows them to access their guestroom, sidestepping the need to wait in front-desk lines.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

"Guest expectations are rising each year as they become more familiar with the benefits that new technology provides, and it is therefore critical to work with a reputable provider that has the abilities and expertise needed for hoteliers to keep pace with the latest demands," the Courtyard's GM Adrian Adam said in a statement. 

While recognized for its convenience-enhancing abilities, mobile access uses the latest in data encryption to ensure that only authorized users can ever gain room access. Leveraging Assa Abloy's Seos technology, mobile access first encrypts digital key and room number information before being transmitted to guest devices using a secure communications channel. Once present on a guest device, the information then is stored inside a digital vault within the hotel's mobile app. When a guest presents their device to the appropriate door lock, digital key data is transmitted again using a secure communication channel to prevent any risk of data theft.

With Elsafe Zenith safes included in each guestroom, those staying at the property can securely store personal belongings using a solution equipped with the latest in antitamper technology.
