Lluc said “So, at the moment hotels are displaying 3 different information lines below the name,1) a description of the hotel, 2) the best price available and the date and 3) the average reviews and hotel category. Which is the most useful for the user?”

Google has shown pricing overlays in Google Maps for hotels for a while but this is a lot more data now in the overlay.
