Through the HHonors app, HHonors members can already book a stay, check-in, select their room, pre-order amenities, and use their smartphone to enter their hotel room door with Digital Key. Later this month, HHonors members will also be able to explore the ‘Local Scene’ in select U.S. cities through a digital guide of the top trending restaurants and nightlife spots selected for being the most frequented destinations with Uber riders. “By partnering with Uber, a leading innovator, we’re helping travelers explore destinations like they’re locals,” said Rich DiStefano, senior director of Mobile Products at Hilton Worldwide. “This is the first time any company has leveraged Uber riders’ most frequented destinations to provide local recommendations. We’re excited to offer these unique benefits for our loyal guests.” ¨The Hilton and Uber partnership is rooted in novel mobile advancements that enhance the travel experience from the start of the journey to departure. Guests can simplify their stay with the Uber “Ride Reminder.” A first for the travel industry, the “Ride Reminder” allows Hilton guests around the globe to set an Uber Ride Reminder with a single tap. When it’s time to head to the hotel, the ‘Ride Reminder’ will send a push notification or text, and the hotel’s address is automatically set in the Uber app, so guests can be on their way. Additionally, all Hilton guests who sign up for Uber will receive $20 off their first ride. Get the full story at Lodging
