MIAMI, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown has been selected to be among 96 out of over 4,700 Hilton hotels worldwide, to participate on the Google Business Photos Hotel Pilot Program. The program is comparable to Google Street View for hotels. Google Business Photos is a high-quality virtual tour of the hotels using the same technology for Street View. A series of panoramic pictures taken of each individual hotel will be stitched together to create a 360-degree interactive tour. Users will be invited to step inside and take a tour when they search for hotels on Google Search, Google Maps, Google Maps for Mobile, Google+ and Google Hotel Finder.
Google believes that Business Photos provides a unique opportunity for hotels to showcase their properties as consumers are planning their trips and making hotel booking decisions. Photos & Interactive Maps are 2 of the top features used by travelers when selecting a hotel, according to PhoCusWright. Tripadvisor's internal analysis shows that "travelers are 150% more engaged on listings with 20+ photos, than those with only a few photos.
The boutique-style Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown, which opened in late 2011, is ranked #1 Miami hotel by TripAdvisor.com and has held the top spot among 131 Miami-area hotels for sixteen consecutive months, with the ranking based entirely on guest reviews.
