Hilton Worldwide has formed a partnership with Uber, whereby Hilton guests from around the world can set Uber ‘Ride Reminders,’ which are automated notifications to request Uber rides to and from the hotel.
Commenting on the partnership, Rich DiStefano, senior director of Mobile Products at Hilton Worldwide said: “Additionally, the partnership is offering further benefits for Hilton HHonors members through the HHonors app where 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 a digital key. By partnering with Uber, a leading innovator, we’re helping travelers explore destinations like they’re locals. 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.”
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.
The Hilton and Uber partnership is rooted in novel mobile advancements that enhance the travel experience from the start of the journey to departure. These advancements will give Hilton guests the ability to simplify their stay with the Uber Ride Reminder’: A first for the travel industry, which allows Hilton guests around the globe to set an Uber Ride Reminder with a single tap.
