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.
The Mayumi has been transformed into a creative stay and work space with design by architecture firm, Shubin Donaldson. The two-story property offers 35 units with private bathrooms, modern-luxury furnishings, storage, flat-screen smart televisions, smartphone controls and more. Residents share common spaces including a full kitchen with top of the line appliances and an expansive courtyard area equipped with work stations and dining areas including BBQ and fire pit areas as well as a shared complimentary laundry room. The Mayumi provides an affordable stay alternative for guests as nightly rates starting at with special arrangements for month-to-month stays.
