Google launched Hotel Finder back in 2011, and now, they’ve finally added the ability to book hotels from your mobile device. This seems like a pretty key feature to have in such an offering, but better late than never, right?

Now, if you go to google.com/hotels on your phone, you can search, filter your results and book your hotel through one of Google’s partners.

“You can filter the search results by price, hotel class, user rating and distance,” says product manager Maciek Nowakowski. “Select a hotel to learn more: photos, hotel amenities, reviews and its location on a map can all be conveniently accessed from the same page. You can also save hotels that appeal to you into a short list for easy comparison by pressing the star.”

You can use Google Wallet to book the reservation if you find the “Buy with Google” button, but if you don’t use Wallet, you can still just enter your payment info.

While Hotel Finder is available in over 100 countries, the new booking capability is only available in the U.S. for now.
