Tech meets hospitality: Hotels to launch virtual tours

The face of the hotel industry is changing. With the way technology is developing things are getting simpler and more accessible. The hotel industry too is increasingly adapting unique ways to match the growing needs of the modern era. One such method is offering virtual tours to visitors even before they check in.

Some hotels have found a novel idea of teaming with Google to offer virtual tours of their properties. Best Western International is set to launch Google Business Photos for at least 2,200 hotels located across North America. Visitors will be able to gauge through these properties online towards the end of this year. This is a great way of connecting with the prospective guests. In a way, even the guests would be able to figure out the exact location and amenities offered within the premises through these tours. This way guests will not feel let down or cheated, as they will be offered the total view much before walking in.

Google Business Photos, powered by Google Street View will offer 360-degree tours of the hotels under its gambit. Street View is indeed an amazing innovation in the field of technology. Though many hotels have incorporated this technology ever since its launch in 2010, may are far behind and catching up fast.

Through this technology, visitors will be able to run through each corner of the hotel much similar to taking a stroll on the premises. Many experts predict that this technology will prove to a game-changer for the industry. It will also change the outlook and perception of customers towards consuming the photographs. The photos that will be available online will be clicked by photographers trained by Google.
