Businesses in the hospitality sector are adopting technology as quickly as it becomes available, so producing an award-winning app is a notable achievement.
With options to check-in from your mobile, and the ability to unlock your hotel door at the swipe of a touchscreen, that’s exactly what Hilton achieved with its Hilton Honors app – and it’s just added a new feature.
The app’s offering has been expanded with the addition of an ‘Explore’ feature. Powered by search-and-discover lifestyle tech from Foursquare, guests now have access to a world of localised recommendations, based on the personal experiences of the hotel’s resident employees.
Whether you’re looking for a world-class meal, upmarket club or place to shop, the app will guide you through your current city with curated, hand-picked options from local Hilton team members, each taking great pride in knowing their cities better than anyone else.
Every recommendation includes photos and tips, like tasty must-try menu items, the best times to go and specific things to see. Suggestions are curated to appeal to a wide variety of guests, from families looking for kid-friendly museums to business travellers seeking a fine-dining experience.
