Regal Hotels is proud to be the first hotel chain in Hong Kong offering “iclub Mobile Key Check-in” service at its iClub by Regal Sheung Wan Hotel, a new select-service hotel to be opened first quarter of 2014.

With the innovative mobile key technology, guests will be given the options to use mobile device for check-in service or traditional key card or both to access their guestroom. The technology provides guest with convenience of accessing their hotel rooms using their mobile device that will automatically unlock the door, completely by-passing the front desk, and possible check-in queue.

Upon arriving the guestroom, the guest simply needs to call that number and an audio signal will be played back, which will be detected by a sensor to open the door. Mobile key check-in service is available to both smartphone and non-smartphone user. (Demonstration video at http://www.youtube.com/regalhotels).
