Jurny, a hospitality tech company that offers “technology-based management solutions” for hotels in major cities, has announced its most high-tech guest experience yet in the form of Blue Moon Hotel, the “boutique hotel” on Manhattan’s Lower East Side that was converted from a former tenement. The hotel has integrated the latest Jurny technology to assist guests in processes usually left to hotel staff.
“New York City hotels are experiencing a slower recovery than the rest of the country,” said David Phillips, co-founder and president of Jurny, in a press release. “Downturns and fluctuations are not new to the industry, but the lingering impacts of the pandemic have become increasingly detrimental to many owners. Our technology helps hotel owners thrive even in unfavorable market conditions by reducing overhead and stripping out redundancies.”
In addition to a one-click check-in and check-out process, smart technology has been integrated into the building. “Between the high costs of operating a hotel and the ongoing effects of the pandemic, I was out of options,” said Randy Settenbrino, owner, artist and developer of the renowned award-winning Blue Moon Hotel. “Jurny has provided the expertise we needed to restore and revitalize the Blue Moon Hotel. Their offerings from design to tech have brought our historic hotel into the future without sacrificing its charm.”
Jurny is an L.A.-based company that claims to be “here for the travelers.” The company desires “guests to be in complete control,” and through immersive smart technology offers “a new way to stay.” The company now has more than 635 hotels and short-term rentals under management.
