SKYE Hotel Suites in Australia are replacing traditional key cards with a state-of-the-art mobile app that comes complete with a digital key function, enabling guests to enter their rooms with a simple swipe of their mobile devices.

This streamlined experience means that guests can lounge by the pool, or pop downstairs for a quick bite to eat without having to worry about forgetting the key card in the room. Wayne Taranto, the director of SKYE hotels said that "As a hotel that was created to provide its guests with a modern and chic experience, implementing mobile access technology made complete sense to us as it represents one of the most popular and in demand service trends within hospitality today."

This digital key technology is available in 72 of the complex's apartment-style suites.
