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.”

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The installation of Assa Abloy Hospitality’s mobile key solution allows Nordic Choice staff to focus their time on the guests and their specific needs by being increasingly available for more urgent matters and to provide a more personalized guest experience. A key benefit to guests is the ability to bypass the front desk by checking in with the Nordic Choice Hotels mobile app and use their mobile device as a room key.
