Last year, Google launched the Google Hotel Finder, which helped travelers find accommodations based on preferences like price and star rating. Now the search engine has added a new and experimental feature to the search that allows users to find hotels based on travel time to and from the hotel to certain landmarks.

For example, if you're traveling to New York City and you want to stay in a hotel that's close to Times Square, you just search for hotels near this landmark, and then select 'Hotels by Travel Time.' This will show you all of the hotels that are within your preferred walking or car-riding distance, which can be any length of time up to 30 minutes. The Google Hotel Finder subsequently allows you to narrow your results according to hotel rating, price and other filters. Stats for Landmark-Based Travel Tools Trending: Older & Chilly
