Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort installs keyless entry technology

The app also will act as a one-stop shop for resort information including directions to the property, amenity booking, notification of early or late arrival, and more.

Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort, Newport News, Va., has joined in partnership with OpenKey to offer an experience-focused technology platform with a mobile access solution. The partnership will offer guests keyless access to their hotel rooms through the Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access solution and Assa Abloy Hospitality’s VingCard RFID electronic locks, in addition to other amenities.

Beyond seamless room access without need of disposable plastic keys, the OpenKey solution offers the option of remote check-in, enabling guests to bypass the front desk of the resort’s luxury hotel, The Lodge at Kiln Creek. The app also will act as a one-stop shop for resort information including directions to the property, amenity booking, notification of early or late arrival, and more.

“The OpenKey platform will be a great addition to our guest services to keep us on the cutting-edge of the mobile technology revolution that is transforming the hospitality industry,” said Chris Coleman, GM of Kiln Creek Golf Club & Resort, in a statement. “With OpenKey, our guests will have access to a range of resort amenities on their own time and according to their own needs while keeping their attention where it ought to be – on the game of golf."
