Valcartier Hotel installs dormakaba Saflok RFID electronic door locks

Valcartier Hotel at Valcartier Vacation Village

The Valcartier Hotel at Valcartier Vacation Village resort in Quebec will open its doors this month with networked Saflok mobile-ready Quantum RFID electronic door locks from dormakaba. The now four-season Valcartier Vacation Village is the biggest winter playground in North America and will be the largest resort in Eastern Canada when it opens.
 
“We want to provide Valcartier Hotel guests with the safety and reliability of the best electronic door locks available today. We trust dormakaba and its Saflok system to deliver this,” said Marjolaine de Sa, director of sales communications and marketing for Valcartier Hotel. “We spoke with many resort operators about their locks before we decided on Saflok. dormakaba had excellent references. The Marriott properties we interviewed thought highly of Saflok. We valued their insight.”

dormakaba will install 153 Saflok BLE-ready Quantum RFID electronic door locks on Valcartier Hotel’s guestrooms before the property’s December grand opening. The entire Valcartier Vacation Village project is expected to include more than 300 networked Saflok door locks across the destination.

“We want to provide the most advanced guest-facing technology throughout our new family oriented resort-spa destination,” de Sa said. “We will have, throughout a year, between 600 and 900 staff at Valcartier Vacation Village and Saflok’s networked RFID locks will enable us to monitor and maintain a more secure property. Our Saflok Quantum RFID locks also support mobile access. We will seriously consider offering mobile access to resort guests as we evolve our operation in the future.”
