Code the Road: A Visit with Hilton Recap

On Monday, June 22 we pulled into Hilton Worldwide Headquarters to see how they are developing an enhanced version of the Hilton HHonors app with Google for Work Premier Partner SADA Systems using the Google Maps APIs.

Hundreds of team members and hotel guests from Hilton McLean stopped by the bus to enjoy a cup of coffee and exciting demos of the HHonors iOS app. When launched, guests will be able to search for a hotel room and view floorplans overlayed onto Google Maps—providing guests richer context when selecting and booking a room.

Members of the HHonors App and supporting teams spoke with us about how integral Google Maps is in their continued efforts to improve the guest experience at Hilton.

During our 30 day journey across the U.S., our team stayed at some of the Hilton brand properties including Hampton Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, to see first-hand the benefits the HHonors program.

It was great to visit with the team in McLean to see the exciting plans on the horizon using the Google Maps APIs. For now, we’ve parked the bus but, we’ll be sharing more of our adventures from the road soon.
