Six Nordic Choice Hotels properties in Stockholm have implemented Assa Abloy Hospitality’s mobile access keyless entry in more than 3,000 rooms. The multiproperty upgrade encompassed Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Quality Hotel Globe, Clarion Hotel Amaranten, Hobo, Clarion Sign, and Quality Hotel Friends.

Officially debuting at Nordic Choice Hotels’ annual Winter Conference in Stockholm on Jan. 19, more than 2,000 attendees used Nordic Choice Hotels’ mobile application with Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access to check in and use their smartphone as a room key.

“With the enhancement to Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access at six of our hotels, we can now offer guests a more convenient experience with the use of innovative technologies that not only improve guest satisfaction but also increase overall property security,” said Lisa Farrar, chief digital officer of Nordic Choice Hotels, in a statement. “This installation marks an incredible feat in the world of hospitality security technology, and we are excited to see all the additional benefits that will be achieved.”
