Hilton Worldwide has announced a partnership with Taxi-sharing firm Uber.
Through the deal Hilton guests can set Uber ‘ride reminders’ – automated notifications to request Uber rides to and from the hotel.
HHonors members can also explore the ‘local scene’ in certain US cities through a digital guide of 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 travellers 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.”
