When selling Premium and Luxury hotel experiences, properties must feature the most high definition and high speed visuals. But it also needs to provide a white-glove experience for the viewer.
Properties which exhibit luxurious spaces and amenities are empowered with virtual site visit technology because in many cases, still imagery — while high in quality — lacks the interactive features and true-to-life experience customers have come to love.
While there are more than we can count, here are five reasons premium and luxury properties love using TrueTour™ to provide memorable service long before the guest steps foot on property.
Premium property features — restaurants, event spaces, spa experiences, golf and recreation, child care and more — require pre-booking and scheduled reservations in the age of COVID. Social distancing demands an immersive experience to help pre-sell amenity reservations before arrival or from the comfort of their room.
Many guests are starting to become accustomed to private amenity reservations. Looking toward the future, many will be comfortable paying a premium to have these spaces and experiences all to themselves. The best immersive visuals, complete with booking and contact tools, will pique guest’s interests and encourage them to enjoy a private luxury experience.
Elevate the Brand Aesthetic
TrueTour’s state-of-the-art proprietary HRD visuals are designed to provide the best 360° quality on the market. We hand-edit each 360° image in house and ensure the color balance, clarity and saturation are as lifelike and flawless as possible. With TrueTour™, you can trust the highest quality hardware on the market will be used to capture your spaces and optimize your visuals, at the fraction of the cost of a professional still photo shoot.
Inclusivity with Language Translation and Accessibility Optimization
Ensure all your web tools are fully accessible for a global clientele. For properties who serve international guests, sharing TrueTour™ in over 150 languages ensures ease of navigation for anyone around the world, putting every guest’s needs first.
TrueTour™ has also optimized its tool to be one of the first immersive tools on the market optimized for colorblind viewers and those using screen-reader and voice activated technology.
