Google Maps Adds More Hotel Search Filters
Google Maps is plotting a clear course in the direction of becoming a superapp for travel and dining. We’ll continue to track the trend closely.
Google Maps has updated its desktop and mobile app versions to add filters for its hotel search functionality. Users can now search properties to find ones with amenities such as free Wi-Fi, a gym, and a pool, and to see if they are pet-friendly or kid-friendly and have services like free breakfast or a gym.
The functionality debuted Tuesday in many markets. It underscores a broader trend in Google Maps becoming ready to morph into a superapp, as outlined in a Skift Deep Dive earlier this month.
