The Sheraton Bucharest Hotel, located in the heart of Romania's capital, has implemented Assa Abloy Global Solutions' mobile-access product. The first Romanian hotel to provide mobile-access functionality, property leadership has ensured that its guests experience seamless and convenient check-in by integrating the technology through the Marriott Bonvoy app.

Implemented alongside Signature radio frequency ID door locks, Assa Abloy's mobile access allows the Sheraton Bucharest to maximize service and convenience for guests before they even set foot on the property. With the ability to check in using the Marriott Bonvoy app before they arrive, guests are notified when their guestroom is ready, with Assa Abloy's mobile access then securely delivering room number details and digital key data to their smart device. 

This is accomplished by leveraging Assa Abloy's secure Seos technology, a solution that works to encrypt sensitive data using the latest industry protocols. Once generated, data is transmitted to a guest's device through a secure communications channel and stored inside a digital vault within the Marriott Bonvoy app. When in proximity to the appropriate door lock reader, a secure communications channel is again used to transmit digital key data to provide authorized and seamless access.

“With guests today seeking greater personalization and instant service, the combination of mobile access together and our app also allows guests to select their own room, depending on preference and availability,” GM Daniel Ben-Yehuda said in a statement.

By also implementing mobile access-compatible Signature RFID door locks, the Sheraton Bucharest gains additional security features with the door lock's own use of advanced encryption technology to safeguard against the latest keycard cloning threats.
