Google One is a paid service from Google that gets you more storage for your Google life (Gmail, Google Photos, Google Drive etc.) plus "other benefits."
The benefits are:
- You can talk to or chat with someone from support.
- You can share the storage with 5 people
- "Up to 40% off select hotels"
However, as you might expect, the list of hotels offering these discounts seem very limited.
I was able to find a hotel near JFK that does offer this discount, it looks like this:
You see the Radisson Hotel JFK Airport for $150 on Nov 10 - Nov 11, 2018. As a comparison, I found a rate of $191 for the same night on Kayak.
I believe these are pre-tax/fees, but I was pleasantly surprised to see a meaningful discount (21%) with Google One. Now I think the issue is finding hotels that actually have this discount. I'm sure Google will try to add more hotels but for now, I don't think the hotel discount should be counted on as a reason to sign up for Google One. It's definitely a nice to have but then you have to remember to compare prices vs Google when you look for hotels.
