Sunridge Hotel Group



Founded in 1981, Sunridge Hotel Group is a leading hotel development and management company with a portfolio that includes several of the industry’s most recognized brands. Routinely recognized for its exceptional quality of service, Sunridge has been the recipient of several industry awards, including being named “Management Company of the Year” and “Best New Opening” by Marriott Hotels & Resorts.


With the opening of two new properties, Residence Inn by Marriott La Quinta, California, and Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix West/Avondale, Sunridge sought the services of a provider with a reputation for meeting the latest guest demands for enhanced safety and contactless convenience. The company also desired to identify a provider recognized for offering superior support services and solutions that could seamlessly mirror the interior design of each hotel.


By adopting VingCard Signature RFID for both properties, Sunridge Hotel Group gains an advanced door lock system equipped with the latest in security encryption technology to prevent risks associated with unauthorized entry such as keycard cloning. Significantly, the solution’s future-proof design also provides Sunridge Hotel Group with the ability to instantly adopt contactless digital key capabilities which at the Residence Inn by Marriott properties, is made readily available to guests via the Marriott BonVoy app. This importantly allows guests staying at either property to side-step the hassle of checking-in at the front desk which doesn’t just represent needless time-consumption, but can also lead to the increased potential for germ exposure. Using their own devices, guests can instead check-in via the Marriott BonVoy app which in turn receives a digital key that allows guests to instantly and safely access their guestrooms.

Enhanced security and functionality aside, Sunridge’s adoption of VingCard Signature RFID also comes from the solution’s ability to seamlessly complement and enhance any hotel’s interior design. Seeking to avoid the commercial and bulky appearance of most hotel locks, Sunridge can instead leverage VingCard Signature RFID’s sleek and modern design to provide its guests with an attractive and welcoming hallway environment that enhances their overall experience.

While recognized as a global company, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions also has a local presence in more than 166 countries around the world. This allows the organization to provide Sunridge with immediate support that is custom-tailored to the specific needs of each region, while benefitting from its worldwide presence to ensure a consistent supply of resources in order to keep client operations and projects moving forward.
