DALLAS, TEXAS (July 24, 2018) – Embracing its one-of-a-kind appeal, Casa Pepe, a boutique hostel in the beautiful historic center of Mexico City, announces the addition of OpenKey’s mobile technology to its suite of guest services. The OpenKey mobile app will provide guests with the comfort of easy check-in at their fingertips.
Travel + Leisure recently named Mexico City as one of The 2018 World’s Best Cities as part of their annual World’s Best Awards reader survey. Casa Pepe provides the perfect location and cultural hub for guests to easily access the city. Major landmarks like El Zocalo, the Cathedral, Palacio de Bellas Artes and museums are all between a three to 15 minute walk. Guests of Casa Pepe can also enjoy free daily tours to explore local cantinas (bars) or relax at the property with entertainment such as in-house concerts, Mezcal and tequila tastings, or a lucha libre fight. Each spacious bedroom has a private bathroom and premium bunk beds, equipped with mini-lockers and suitcase lockers. For the connected traveler, Casa Pepe offers free Wi-Fi and USB and electrical connections at each bed. Adding to the hostel comforts, guests can now fully skip the front desk during check-in with OpenKey’s mobile app.
“OpenKey is the perfect mobile technology solution for any hotelier looking to modernize and further enhance its guest experience and comforts,” said Javier Puente, Founder and Managing Director of Casa Pepe. “Our goal has always been to put our guests first and ensure they feel welcomed and at home.”
In addition to an easy check-in and check-out process, OpenKey app users do not have to worry about carrying a disposable plastic key as they’ll have keyless room access. Guests can also receive directions to Casa Pepe, inform the property of early or late arrival, and receive Wi-Fi codes all directly from the app without having to speak to anyone at the front desk.
“We are ecstatic to continue our growth into top destinations such as Mexico City with great partners like Casa Pepe,” said Brian Shedd, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for OpenKey. “Along the way we have learned that in the spectrum of hotel brands, from boutique to chain and local to international, a universal sentiment for all hoteliers is elevating their guest experience.”
OpenKey, the industry standard for universal mobile access in hotels, can be found in 50 countries on six continents. The innovative key technology works with 90% of all digital hotel locks and is both user-friendly and affordable.
