MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton solves travel planning needs as the first major hotel company to introduce a booking experience that allows individuals to easily book and instantly confirm at least two connecting rooms. This innovative technology—Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton—has started to roll-out globally and will be available when booking on Hilton.com or through the Hilton Honors app at participating hotels within any of the portfolio’s 18 world-class brands.
This concept was born out of extensive customer research and the clear desire for increased freedom and flexibility to customize guests’ travel spaces and experiences.
“Over recent months, we’ve seen business start to return across various markets in Asia, with domestic leisure travelers being the first to plan their trips again as they look to reunite and reconnect with family and friends. With more than a century of welcoming guests through our doors, we’ve always recognized the importance of being able to confirm connecting rooms at the time of booking. We are delighted to now be able to bring this to life through Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton,” said Ben George, senior vice president and commercial director, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “We are confident it will set Hilton’s hotels apart and create renewed confidence in the booking experience for our guests at a time when people are starting to once again be planning ahead for travel.”
For larger families, friend groups, wedding attendees and other travel parties, there have always been many benefits to staying in connecting guest rooms, however, the booking process has not always been seamless. Individuals can now book and instantly confirm connecting rooms in three easy steps:
- Step 1: Select number of desired rooms, along with the destination and dates, and choose your hotel.
- Step 2: When selecting a room, check the box to indicate interested in Connecting Rooms.
- Step 3: Select each Connecting Room at the desired rates and book the stay with instant confirmation.
