Hotel Via, the first newly constructed hotel in San Francisco since 2008, has installed and is using Assa Abloy Hospitality's VingCard Essence electronic door locks. Along with the locks, the hotel is also using Visionline locking system and the Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access solution, which is available to Hotel Via guests through Keypr's customized mobile concierge app.

"As a new hotel, we wanted to seek out hospitality technologies that supported the contemporary and innovative aesthetic we were trying to create," Hotel Via GM Barbara Perzigian said in a statement. "With these cutting-edge technologies from Assa Abloy Hospitality and Keypr, we have created a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests."

Hotel Via's 159 rooms are now equipped with the VingCard Essence door locks, which feature mobile access compatibility to allow guests to use their smartphones to access their room. With the Visionline wireless locking system, hotel management can remotely monitor and control lock access and activity in the hotel.
