Sunridge Hotel Group adopts ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions
ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions has maximized the safety and convenience of guests at two newly opened Residence Inn by Marriott properties operated by Sunridge Hotel Group—Residence Inn by Marriott La Quinta in California, and Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix West/Avondale—with the implementation of VingCard Signature RFID locks equipped with Mobile Access technology and supported by the Visionline access management system.

By adopting VingCard Signature RFID for both properties, Sunridge Hotel Group gains an advanced door lock system equipped with the latest in security encryption technology to prevent risks associated with unauthorized entry such as keycard cloning. The solution’s future-proof design also provides Sunridge with the ability to instantly adopt contactless digital key capabilities which at the properties is made readily available via the Marriott Bonvoy app.

Sunridge’s adoption of VingCard Signature RFID also comes from the solution’s ability to seamlessly complement and enhance any hotel’s interior design. Seeking to avoid the commercial and bulky appearance of most hotel locks, Sunridge can instead leverage VingCard Signature RFID’s sleek and modern design to provide its guests with an attractive and welcoming hallway environment that enhances their overall experience.
