The Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas upgraded guest door locks at the 1,000-room property from magstripe to dormakaba’s MT radio frequency ID electronic locks.  The full-service Plaza has 1,003 updated rooms and suites, a classic Vegas showroom, downtown’s only bingo hall and 30,000 square feet of renovated ballroom and meeting space. 
 
“Guest convenience and lock reliability are essential for large properties like ours where guests may have to come a long way if their magstripe key is erased. Dormakaba’s RFID upgrade definitely up-levels our guest experience,” the Plaza's VP/GM Michael Pergolini said in a statement. “RFID locks are extremely reliable and very easy for our guests to use. Dormakaba has been an excellent partner for the Plaza. We will also install dormakaba’s RFID locks on all meeting rooms for our 30,000 square feet of event space. This will let us offer a more secure venue for our corporate, social and convention clients.”
 
Dormakaba's product portfolio offers architects, developers and property managers versatile technology design solutions. Its systems address the functional needs of any hotel type by controlling and monitoring access at every entry point. Dormakaba's guest-centric solutions merge security with convenience to create a safer more welcoming environment.
