Google Now hotel info

Summer is when a lot of folks take time off to travel to new places, and today Google Now learned a new trick to help vacationers find things to do near where they’re staying.

Google Now can display things to do, see or eat that are near the hotel that you’re staying at. So long as your hotel confirmation is in Gmail, you can ask Google Now to show you places around your hotel or for directions back to your hotel, and the virtual assistant will oblige.

There are several apps that can help you find things to do in a strange city, but Google Now has the advantage of being built into Android. Plus it can quickly show you places that are near your hotel and help you find your way back, all in the same app.

Do you use apps to find things to do while you’re vacationing in an unfamiliar place?
