“Hotel Monville is close to The Palais des congrès de Montréal international convention center. Most of our guests are experienced business travelers who value a fast check-in. dormakaba plays an essential role at our property,” said Jean-Cédric Callies, sales and marketing director for Hotel Monville. “Our automated kiosks check guests in with a few key strokes and issue a secure RFID keycard to open their door equipped with dormakaba locks. dormakaba’s electronic access system integrates with our property PMS and is secure, easy to use. All our guests value dormakaba’s reliability. We have never had a guest report difficulty accessing their room.”
Monville is the first and only hotel in Canada to provide room service using an autonomous delivery robot that carries orders directly to guest rooms. “Guests order food and beverages from their TV and their order can be delivered by robot in seven minutes,” Callies said. “Our lobby is staffed to assist guests, but our kiosks and dormakaba RFID electronic locks work perfectly. We program Monville’s robot to provide custom greeting messages to welcome specific business meeting members.
