Uber Partnering With Hilton To Streamline Travel Experience
Those who use the popular ridesharing app Uber, and who also often stay at Hilton hotels, may be happy to hear that the two companies are now partnering together to offer a more streamlined means of traveling to and from hotels, airports, restaurants, etc.
Via the new partnership, guests at Hilton hotels will now be able to set “Uber Ride Reminders” — essentially, automated notifications concerning rides to/from the hotel — as well as gain access to other services. Of these, interestingly, HHonors members will now be able to learn which restaurants/bars/etc in the area that they’re staying in are frequented most often by Uber riders, via the HHonors app.
The head of Travel Partnerships at Uber, Jonathan DiOrio, commented: “Hilton is a leader in digital innovation and has a unique mobile-first approach that makes them a natural partner for Uber. We are always looking for new ways to make the Uber experience even better for our millions of riders worldwide and are excited to offer these new features for the first time exclusively to Hilton guests and HHonors members.”
