In-room Safes from Elsafe
New Property Selects Highly Secure, UL-Listed Safes from Industry Leader
DALLAS – Oct. 6, 2008 – Elsafe®, the leading provider of electronic in-room safes to the hospitality industry and part of the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Group, announced today that the Aloft Montreal Airport in Dorval, Quebec has installed Sentinel Advanced (41) digital in-room safes in each of its 136 guestrooms. Opened in June, the property was the first hotel to open under the new Aloft hotel brand from Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. ®
“The aesthetically-pleasing design elements of the Sentinel Advanced safes, not to mention the safes’ prestigious UL-listing, made Elsafe the obvious choice when it came to finding the right in-room safes for our guestrooms,” said Perry Vashee, a representative from the ownership group of the Aloft Montreal Airport.
The innovative, affordable Sentinel Advanced series was developed by Elsafe to provide the ultimate in security, simplicity and convenience for hoteliers and their guests. As the industry’s only UL-listed (1037) hotel safe series on the market, Sentinel’s durable, heavy-gauge steel body safes must pass rigorous break-in tests prescribed and administered by professional testing laboratories.
“As the first property to open under this unique new Starwood hotel brand, the Aloft Montreal Airport needed the best in-room safes available in order to provide the security and convenience that Starwood guests have come to expect,” said Laura Cigana, vice president of Canadian sales for ASSA ABLOY Hospitality North America.
The modular construction of Sentinel also makes adding features or upgrading technology as easy as changing the front panel, allowing Elsafe to continue to add the latest options to meet the constantly evolving security needs of its hotel customers, including the Aloft Montreal Airport.
Conveniently located at the entrance to Montreal’s Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport, the property officially opened on June 5, 2008. As one of the newest hotel brands to be introduced by Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Aloft is “infused with the DNA of W Hotels” featuring loft-inspired design, accessible technology and a stylish urban attitude.
Part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, Elsafe has been leading provider of safes to the hospitality industry since introducing the world’s first electronic in-room safe in 1979. For more information, visit www.elsafe.com.
