Bardessono Announces Partnership with OpenKey
Eco-conscious hotel in Napa Valley now offers universal mobile key technology

DALLAS, TX (May 15, 2017) – OpenKey, the industry standard for universal mobile key technology, has been selected by Bardessono in Napa Valley, California as the property’s check-in mobile app of choice. The partnership compliments the property’s existing larger environment initiatives, offering guests a fully luxurious experience in a manner that is practical, economic and eco-friendly.

The award-winning OpenKey app will enable seamless room access for guests of Bardessono, while accomplishing the greater goal of reducing the hotel’s carbon footprint through elimination of disposable plastic keys. OpenKey also serves as a one-stop-shop for directions to the property, amenity booking, and notification of an early or late arrival to the hotel.Bardessono

“Partnering with OpenKey was an easy decision,” said Sileshi Mengiste, Vice President and General Manager of Bardessono. “The use of their technology affords convenience for our guests and serves as an approachable way for them to contribute to our environmentally-friendly mission. OpenKey compliments all of our eco-friendly programming and initiatives, allowing us to offer a fully-integrated model of sustainable, and luxurious, hospitality.”

Sustainable design is at the heart of Bardessono’s vision of luxury hospitality. From the organic cotton bed linens to the hand-crafted bath products, Bardessono has actively chosen to make progress on environmental issues by integrating the most advanced, environmental technologies, helping to minimize the impacts of construction and design. This also includes the use of organic cleaning supplies, as well as the implementation of recycling and composting programs. Products in the restaurant and spa are sourced primarily from local organic or sustainable producers.

“We are thrilled to be implementing OpenKey at Bardessono, Napa Valley,” said TJ Person, CEO of OpenKey. “Our universal mobile key not only provides guests with a simple, secure mobile key experience, but also serves as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional hotel card-keys.”
