Travelers searching for a last-minute hotel room this week will be in for a surprise when they call into HotelTonight.
That's because Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green will work as a digital concierge for the San Francisco-based booking app Thursday.
According to the Associated Press, Green will speak directly with customers, whether it's helping them book a last-minute room or ensuring that any of their special requests are met. The NBA champion and All-Star forward will shadow HotelTonight co-founder and CEO Sam Shank and his executive team Thursday afternoon.
"Fans will get a thrill having Draymond answer their requests—I'm pretty sure our staff will also learn a thing or two," Shank said via the AP.
"I hope he's nice to the Cleveland fans who are checking in," he added, referring to the Warriors' heated rivalry with the defending champion Cavaliers.
"As an athlete, I'm constantly traveling and booking last-minute hotels," Green said in a statement. "I'm excited to bring this unique expertise to the digital concierge for the day and learn more about the inner workings of a tech company, especially one I use so much."
