Virtual Reality: The New Frontier For Hotel Marketing And Booking

Jul 19, 2018 11:41:47 AM / by VRdirect


The Flushing Meadows Hotel & Bar in Munich, Germany has a unique story to tell its guests. With eleven spectacular rooms all inspired and created by selected designers, musicians, artists and even a local surf legend, it is the place to stay for aficioandos of good taste - and top notch drinks.

Showcasing this attention to detail, design and a unique “home away from home” experience to potential guests can be challenging to achieve with just words and photos alone.

Luckily, an Interactive Virtual Tour created with VR platform partner VRdirect solves this problem. View The Flushing Meadows Hotel and Bar VR experience here

What makes Virtual Tours Effective

Rather than traditional 2D mediums such as still photos and videos, with Virtual Reality (VR) your potential guests can now fully immerse themselves in your hotel, moving within the rooms as if they are actually inside them. Being fully immersed gives your guests the opportunity to notice details as small as furniture placements to as grand as a stunning 360° views like the Flushing Meadows rooftop bar.

The opportunity to look in every direction with multiple angles gives your guests unprecedented knowledge of what they’re going to be paying for.

Virtual Reality is the next big thing

Not only is VR quickly developing into tech sectors in the market, but the rapid rise of VR-enabled cell phones and VR headset devices is apparent, with over 22 million VR headsets sold this year alone. Hotels should be using this to competitively attract more guests and to secure direct bookings, especially because statistic-backed studies show VR tours reduce wasted viewings by 40%. That’s a huge number!
