UrbanDaddy seeks monetary damages plus injunctive relief against further development and use of the Point and other similar services.
It's unclear whether the Point has been successful. In July, CEO Gracia Martore told Wall Street analysts that it's now available in more than 3,000 Hiltons, where it generates 130,000 unique daily visitors. That's an average of only 43 per hotel, however.
Hilton pays USAT a fee for the portal, and the newspaper also gets advertising revenue.
The newspaper says the Point offers hotel guests a "unique blend of world, national and local news; local guides and tools, including top picks from local insiders, and premium digital entertainment content."
