Swedish hotel test drives ASSA ABLOY remote hotel check-in

Check in and out and open your hotel door all from your mobile phone

Remembering hotel keys can be a pain in the behind, and I can't imagine how many walk away from hotels every day leaving the owners to have to buy more. The Clarion Hotel in Stockholm is trying to make key cards a lot less necessary with their trial of ASSA ABLOY's remote hotel check-in.

For four months, the hotel is providing near-field communications (NFC) equipped Samsung handsets to selected customers to give the remote keycard program a whirl. All of the room, check-in, and check-out information can be remotely downloaded, stored, and wiped if necessary with the provided application from any NFC-enabled handset. If this takes off, there may soon be no reason to ever see the front desk at all.
