Tilden Hotel implements OpenKey mobile key technology

Tilden Hotel

The Tilden Hotel, a Point Hospitality Group property located in San Francisco’s historic Tenderloin district near Union Square, has selected OpenKey mobile key technology to elevate its guest experience.

While OpenKey is known for its flexibility and security of its digital key, the complementary consumer app also provides guests with capabilities such as hotel check-in directly from their smartphone, directions to the hotel and the ability to book amenities.

“We are excited to offer OpenKey to our guests at Tilden Hotel,” said GM Jason Webb. “As a pillar of the historic Tenderloin district, we strive to offer an unassuming, stylish and organic appeal with refreshing surprises. By evolving from plastic keycards to mobile keyless entry, OpenKey aids us in achieving this goal. At the Tilden Hotel, we strive to pay homage to the city’s history and future with each part of our hotel, and by adding this technology, we are doing just that.”
