For most people that use electronic devices to book their hotel stay, the search tends to begin on a popular booking site like Expedia or a popular app like HotelTonight. Did you know that your navigation app can also provide hotel information?
Google Maps is already known for its detailed information on businesses, including pictures provided by users or Google itself. If you’re planning on a hotel stay and want to research the area, the app is very useful for getting an idea of what you can expect. To give you an even better idea of what the experience will be like, Google Maps is taking things a step further by not just telling you what the amenities are, but also showing you.
It may take a while before it shows up for you, but you’ll soon see pictures under the Amenities tab when researching hotels in Google Maps. These images don’t appear to be user-submitted yet, but it should only be a matter of time before the feature is enabled so you can determine whether that pool really is as large as it looks on the hotel website.
To use the new amenities feature in Google Maps, make sure you have the latest version of the app on your phone.
