Mayumi, a new 35-unit boutique hotel in Culver City, Calif., has partnered with OpenKey to offer an experience-focused technology platform with a mobile access solution that grants guests keyless access to their short- and long-term living spaces.

“Our demographic is all about openness, sharing, collaboration, and disrupting the more traditional living experience,” Robert Herscu of Mayumi said in a statement. “We’re excited to see how this product takes shape with existing and new visitors to residents in the area, and we couldn’t think of a better way to hand them the keys to our creative communal-living space than by putting access to the property residences right on their smartphones.”

Along with keyless access to their residences, short- and long-term occupants of the Mayumi can employ the OpenKey app to book amenities, notify the property of early or late arrival, receive property announcements and access Wi-Fi codes. OpenKey technology also eliminates the need for disposable plastic keys.
