The award-winning OpenKey app will enable seamless room access for guests of the Melrose Georgetown Hotel, while also reducing the hotel’s carbon footprint by eliminating disposable plastic keys. OpenKey also serves as a convenient source for directions to the property, amenity booking, notification of early or late arrival to the hotel and more.

“We’re excited to be partnering with OpenKey,” said Jale Hashimi, Vice President and General Manager of the Melrose Georgetown Hotel. “OpenKey’s technology makes sense for our guests, who value a hassle-free stay as they make their way through our dynamic city on business and leisure travel.”

Nestled in one of the most charming neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. and just down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, the Melrose Georgetown Hotel is a desirable destination for sophisticated travelers looking to explore the nation’s capital. Among the hotel’s features are accommodations exuding style and luxury, seasonal menus created from sustainable ingredients at Jardenea Restaurant and easy proximity to the Metro. Located just one mile away from Embassy Row, guests can also tour the historic mansions of the city’s most storied district, which currently house foreign embassies for more than 60 countries. International travelers will be greeted by a multilingual staff at the Melrose Georgetown Hotel, with over seven languages spoken fluently on the property. Multilingual tours of the city’s must-visit attractions are also available, including The White House, Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, Mount Vernon and others.

“We’re thrilled to welcome the Melrose Georgetown Hotel to our growing portfolio of marquis hotels around the world,” said Brian Shedd, VP of Sales & Marketing for OpenKey. “The OpenKey  app eases the entire travel process for guests and employees alike by offering a simple and secure mobile key experience that increases customer loyalty and staff efficiency.”
