Google Maps adds accommodation finder for medical staff

Google is aiming to make it easier for medical workers to find free or discounted hotel rooms by introducing a special feature on Maps. A number of hotels across the country have been offering up their rooms to NHS staff, in a bid to reduce risks such as their use of public transport or taking coronavirus home to a vulnerable member of their family. Healthcare professionals, first responders and other essential workers will be able to use a new filter in Google Maps, as well as through the main Google search, to help them find available accommodation. The tech giant said it is working with partners including Choice Hotels International, Hilton, and IHG Hotels & Resorts, as well as the American Hotel & Lodging Association.
