Super-budget Cardiff hotel would benefit from centralised access system
A budget hotel company, easyHotel, has acquired a site in Cardiff city centre in order to build an £80m “super-budget” hotel.
EasyHotel owns, develops and franchises budget hotels in 25 countries. In the UK it owns seven hotels, with 702 rooms, and there are also 19 franchised sites with 1,641 rooms.
The 12-bed hotel will be built at the side of a 5-storey office building, Cromwell House, on Fitzalan Place. It will be a short walk from Queen Street Station and half a mile from Motorpoint Arena.
In a statement easyHotel said: "The group announced on 30 October 2017 the acquisition of a freehold site in Cardiff.
"Planning permission for a 120-bedroom hotel has now been granted.
"Development work for the new purpose-built site, which is located at Fitzalan Place, just 0.3 miles from Cardiff Queen Street Station will now begin and the hotel is anticipated to open in the 2019/20 financial year."
The hotel industry has always been one of the most enthusiastic adopters of a keycard system, as a method of access control and a method of energy saving through keycard-operated light switches.
Many hotel access control systems are not centrally controlled – they essentially act exactly like a traditional lock and key. Centralised access management enables you to collect data and get a big-picture view.
For example, you might want certain employees to only be able to get into certain areas at certain times. This could be for security reasons, or even health and safety. With a centralised system, this can be programmed into their employee profile which is linked to their card.
Here at Access Control Wales we can provide you an access control system which gives you full control over who is allowed access through any controlled point at any time of any day.
The system will adapt easily to your specific security environment, and the system’s modularity allows it to easily scale up as your operations grow.
