Need to create a better Input/Search option

I think I’ve basically had a brainfart here and missed something basic as I’ve got other searches in my App that do what I want but this morning the old noggin just ain’t firin’ properly…can anyone help?
I’ve got an Input that enables a logged in User to change a Contact’s preferred Hotel. When the user starts typing in the input, the names of my Hotels appear in a list and they can pick them.
Where I’m having difficulty is that if there’s more than one Hotel with the same name, the user basically has to guess which Hotel they’re selecting.
This means that if a user wants to select The Grand Hotel, when they start typing “The Gr” the list underneath displays;
“The Grand Hotel”
“The Grand Hotel (1)”
“The Grand Hotel (2)”
which isn’t very useful. How can I append more details to the Hotel Name so that it shows a Street, Town and Postcode so I see, for example…
“The Grand Hotel, Kings Rd, Brighton BN1 2FW”
“The Grand Hotel, Södra Blasieholmshamnen, Stockholm”

I’ve done this elsewhere using :Append and :Extract from address but the options just aren’t available in this one…

Here’s a screenshot of what I’ve got…

The simplest way would be to create another field for display purposes, which contains the hotel name and city - e.g. The Grand Hotel, Brighton - (or full address if you think it’s necessary) and use that for the search rather than just the name.

Thank you! That makes sense.
My brain simply isn’t functioning today so I’ll have a stab at that after some lunch.
