Hilton Worldwide inks deal with Uber

Hilton Worldwide has partnered with technology platform Uber to offer expanded digital features that will further simplify and streamline the travel experience for Hilton guests.

Through the partnership, Hilton guests around the world can set Uber ‘Ride Reminders,’ automated notifications to request Uber rides to and from the hotel.

Additionally, the partnership is creating added benefits for Hilton HHonors members.

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 US 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 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.”

The Hilton and Uber partnership is rooted in novel mobile advancements that enhance the travel experience from the start of the journey to departure.

“Hilton is a leader in digital innovation and has a unique mobile-first approach that makes them a natural partner for Uber,” said Jonathan DiOrio, head of Travel Partnerships at 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.”
