Google is moving deeper into the hospitality business; Adding hotel and restaurant search to Android.

Google has integrated hotel and restaurant search on Android, allowing Android smartphone users run a quick search on hotel-related queries and get a list of hotels with an option to filter the search results based on price range, customer rating and opening hours.

4Hoteliers Image LibraryGoogle said in its official Google+ post, last Friday:

It’s hard to make last-minute hotel and restaurant reservations in your price range, in the right neighborhood and with the right flair.

But now, you can just ask a quick question on your phone—tap the mic on your Android and say “show me some restaurants in downtown Austin.”

You’ll see your options and you can swipe to see more, or tap the button to “see all.” If you need a way to make sense of the many options, tap the new filter tool to help you narrow it down by price, ratings, cuisine, and even whether it’s open now.

(This works only in the U.S. for now, but stay tuned!) Found the one? Just say “OK Google, call 219 West” and you’re good to go.
