Google has made travel a little more comfortable with Google Now. If your hotel confirmation has come into your Gmail account, Google will make a note of the hotel and the area and you can ask Google anything that can be done nearby the hotel.
Once Google knows the hotel you stay, you can ask “Show me restaurants around my hotel” and ask directions from the hotel to your destination. Moreover, you can still look for nearby places to explore or shop. If at any time you forget the name and address of the hotel, you can simply ask for Google to “Give me directions to my hotel from here”, avoiding the prospect of getting lost in a new city.
