Mission Inn, USA

Encompassing an entire city block in the charming southern California town of Riverside is the spectacularly unique Mission Inn. Recognized as a National Historic Landmark Hotel, the Mission Inn's architecture is a remarkable blending of styles and ornamental details, all faithfully restored to their original splendor. Its fine art, treasured antiques, courtyards and gardens have dazzled presidents, dignitaries and movie stars since the early 1900's. Adjacent to the estate is a colorful district of antique shops, specialty boutiques, museums, art galleries, restaurants and coffee houses.

The estate features 23,000 square feet of extraordinary indoor and outdoor meeting and banquet space. Just beyond the turrets and domes, buttresses and bell towers, the Mission Inn also offers 238 beautiful and distinctive guest rooms and suites. Each provides a compelling, imaginative retreat with many unique furnishings and private patios.

As part of a recent renovation, The Mission Inn secured these historic guest rooms with VingCard’s DAVINCI door locks and VISION software. This software platform was chosen due to the property's unique configuration that required a solution other than a standard card locking system. The added functionality of smart card operation was also needed for staff access management.
