If you ponied up $1,500 yesterday for Google Glass, you’ll probably want to start scouting apps to try out with your brand new piece of wearable tech. If we can make a suggestion, hotel mega-chain, Starwood has just released a new app for Google’s modern day monocle that lets would-be guests search its vast inventory of resorts, view photos of rooms, get directions to a location and book a stay.

Not Glass’ first brush with travel, last year Google released Field Trip, an app that provides tourists with information about their new surroundings. Pair that with Starwood’s new offering and jetsetters could possibly have the high-tech one-two punch that’ll knockout some of the stress associated with travel. However, there’s one small caveat. Like most things Glass, the app is in beta, so it may have a few hiccups here and there.
