Following is a series of articles about how Hotel Virtual Tours can be used to sell more rooms, suites, banquets, conventions and wedding receptions.

Some of the Hotel Virtual Tour articles are;

Second Generation Virtual Tours
Things have changed in 10 years of Hotel Virtual Tours: High Resolution images come with faster connection speeds, Full Screen Display lets you sell your hotel with the whole monitor and Adobe Flash power makes the images viewable by 99.9% of Internet users

They've Arrived Online...Now What?
What do potential guests and customers find when they're on your hotel website? A lot of text? A Lowest Room Rate Guarantee? A few snapshots?
A complete Hotel Virtual Tour lets them step inside your hotel from hundreds of miles away. A complete Hotel Virtual Tour shows them what you would show them if they stopped by for a look before makeing reservations or booking a banquet.

The Virtual Hotel
What if you could put your hotel online, your website can be an Online Representation of your Hotel. Maybe not the "first person, walkthrough" experience of the latest video games, but they could get the idea of what your hotel is like by combining still photos and 360° Virtual Images.
A photo of the front of the hotel would be like driving up un front of your property. A 360° Virtual Image would feel like they've walked into your Lobby. Then virtual images of the rooms they might stay in. Maybe stills of specific in-room amenities. Virtual images of banquet & meeting rooms let people see where they'll be taking a seminar and 360° views of the restaurants & pool can show what you have to eat and relax

The Online Property Tour
Most hotels treat their website like a "Billboard on the Information Superhighway" when it can be a tool sales people and reservationists use. Imagine guiding a meeting planner, convention inquiry or bride-to-be on a Property Tour over the phone and Internet. While your competition is mailing or e-mailing information, you're taking people on a Virtual Visit or Online Property Tour, and they're coming back on their own. When they come back they bring the meeting speaker, convention decision maker and mother of the bride with them. What more would you want?

The Desktop Hotel
The bride-to-be, meeting planner or person making site selction for a convention is at your hotel and all the meeting rooms are occupied. Just take them to your office, go to your website on your computer, click on the virtual tour, turn the computer monitor around and show them the ballroom, hospitality suite, breakout rooms, etc. This works at tradeshows, wedding showcases and off property sales offices, too

The Lure of a Virtual Tour
How to use a Virtual Tour to get more potential Guests to visit your hotel website instead of keeping the tour a secret.

Showing your Suites, sells more Suites
Don't give your suites away as free upgrades, sell them at Rack Rate by showing potential guests what they'll get for a few extra dollars.

What hotel chains and online travel agencies use

More Places means More Faces
Virtual Tour Distribution is like giving  Hundreds of Property Tours, EVERY DAY! ICEPortal.com, a leading distributer of Hotel Virtual Tours to websites like Expedia.com, TripAdvisor.com, Orbitz.com, Priceline.com and dozens of others, reports their 100 most popular Hotels Virtual Tours get viewed and average of 600 times a day. It would take an entire staff and a big payroll to do this in reality rather than cyberspace.

Video vs Virtual Images
Should your hotel choose one or the other, or use both?
