Guests want immersive information before booking and feeling well informed before taking the plunge, so hotels have to think about new ways to introduce themselves. And what better way to transport your guests directly to your hotel than with panoramic views of your rooms and your spaces. The 360° panoramic images allow guests to see your hotel from all angles, as if they were there with you. It's the perfect way to intensify the game and invite guests to your world.
