“As more travelers arrange their hotel stays on the fly, Hilton Worldwide today will announce plans to launch seven, chain-specific applications for Apple iPhone and iPhone touch users,” Barbara De Lollis blogs for USA Today.
“The apps will let users find hotels in cities where they’ve just landed using GPS technology; book, cancel or change their reservations, check Hilton HHonors loyalty points and even order a late-night snack,” De Lollis reports.
“The seven apps are interconnected, which means that a customer who uses a Hilton app can book a room at a mid-priced Embassy Suites or at a luxury Conrad hotel,” De Lollis reports.
De Lollis reports that the apps should “become available on iTunes in quick succession starting in about a week or two, pending Apple’s approval. Hilton already submitted the Hilton and Doubletree apps, so they should be the first to appear.”
