Kowloon Shangri-La enhances Security System

Travel News Asia 25 August 2004

The Kowloon Shangri-La hotel in Hong Kong, recently enhanced its security system with the installation of a new guest lift key card system. The new system, which cost HK$100,000 to install, is part of the hotel's continuous effort to step up security and is fully computerised. The new system will only grant registered guests access to guest floors by requiring them to insert valid key cards into a card reader fitted in all guest lifts.

Thierry Douin, General Manager, said, "In today's highly sophisticated environment where guests pay far more emphasis on safety and security than ever before, we believe that we play a major responsibility in exercising 'optimum care' to ensure our guests of a safe and comfortable stay with us. Guest response has been very positive towards the new feature and they specially welcome the key card readers installed in all guest lifts as an added security for their privacy."

In recognition of Kowloon Shangri-La's best practice and tireless effort in security, the hotel was the proud recipient of the highest rating from the International Security Management (USA) in 1998.
