ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Grubhub and Homewood Suites by Hilton have partnered to bring off-site dining options to guests through the Grubhub app at nearly 500 Homewood Suites locations across the country.
Guests at Homewood Suites properties in the United States that don’t have on-site dining options will be able to order from local restaurants and convenience stores on Grubhub through geolocation and QR codes around the property that take them directly to the Grubhub Marketplace. The hotel location and courier drop-off instructions will automatically populate at checkout.
Guests who were a part of a pilot program at select Homewood Suites locations earlier this year noted high overall satisfaction with their delivery experience—from the speed of delivery to the packaging of the food and options for delivery, including no-contact delivery.
“Travel and food go hand in hand, and we’re excited to work with Hilton to be their go-to meal delivery provider and make it easier for guests to discover new restaurants from the comfort of their room,” said Eric Ferguson, chief operations officer at Grubhub. “Whether a guest is craving a meal, wants a quick snack or needs an item they may have forgotten at home, they’ll be able to access Grubhub’s robust network of restaurants and convenience stores at the touch of a button. From our pilot of this program, we saw that orders from small- and mid-sized businesses accounted for more than half of all orders, and we’re proud to support local communities and restaurants through this partnership.”
The Grubhub partnership is now available at all participating Homewood Suites hotels across the United States. Homewood Suites guests that affiliate with their hotel will receive one free month of Grubhub+, Grubhub’s loyalty program.
