Just Uber It! (From The Hyatt App During Your Next Stay)
Since ride-sharing services are practically a part of everyday life in the big cities, it's not unusual for hotels to pair up with these taxi alternatives for special packages. Indeed, we've seen it done before. But Hyatt Hotels has gone to a whole 'nother level with their latest app update.
Now you can call up Uber from within the Hyatt app. An Uber button will appear under the "My Reservations" section of the app from the moment you check-in until the end of your stay. So let's say you have a
Tindr date business meeting across town. Once you finish with that, you can call up an Uber from the Hyatt app and it will have your Hyatt hotel's address already pre-set, thus saving you the time of having to figure out where your hotel is located. You know, in case you forget where you are staying and all. #biztravelerlife.
The Hyatt app will also show the regular list of available Uber options and the recommended prices for the trip. First-time Uber users will have to create their own Uber account but the usual Uber sign-up credit will apply.
The Uber upgrade is a nice add-on to the revamped Hyatt mobile apps as well as their new website which is way easier to navigate and has a useful "View Hotels Near Me Tonight" function. You can download the Hyatt app for iPhone here. For Android, go here. And remember, the Uber function only works in cities where Uber is active.
