Hilton and Uber linked through their apps

Travel News 01 Apr 2016

Hilton Worldwide loyalty program members now can order an Uber directly within Hilton's HHonors app, and Uber users can view their hotel stay information and check in directly from the Uber app. The arrangement builds on a partnership between Hilton and Uber that began in September 2015 with Ride Reminder, which reminds travelers to book Ubers to and from their hotels, and Local Scene, which lists popular venues in a given market based on the destinations of local Uber riders. With the newest app iterations, as a reservation time nears, the Uber app pre-sets the traveler's hotel as the recommended destination and the traveler can tap the “view stay details” option in the Uber app to check in, choose a room and request a Digital Key while on the way to the hotel.
