DALLAS — DECEMBER 1, 2005 — When it comes to Signature, Tarsadia Hotels Assistant Project Manager Junior Patel is dotting his i’s and crossing his t’s. The new Signature by VingCard electronic-locking solution, which was launched last month to the global hospitality industry, been selected for six Tarsadia Hotels based on its design-centric appearance, affordable price and its upgradeable technology platform.
“We strongly believe that the new Signature Series of electronic locks from VingCard will help us to generate new and repeat business at our hotels, thus enabling us to grow our portfolio,” Patel said. “The design of hotel door locks has been pretty much overlooked until now. Everybody offers a standard looking lock. When I saw the Signature electronic lock, which features minimal door hardware and a beautiful line of designer door handles, it really stood out. I was very interested in pursuing it for our properties.”
Tarsadia Hotels (www.tarsadiahotels.com), located in Orange County, Calif., owns and manages 17 properties in California, Las Vegas and Colorado. The company started with one hotel in 1976, and plans to continue to add to its portfolio. The six properties to install Signature include: two Courtyard by Marriott hotels, a Towne Place Suites, a Fairfield Inn, a Hampton Inn and a Homewood Suites.
‘Standing Out, by Blending In’
Patel said that the Signature lock blends right
in with the hotel’s environment, because all that is visible on the door
is the handle lever and a separate, small, yet attractive card reader.
Patel also hailed VingCard for offering reasonable
