Located on the banks of the Mississippi river with everything New Orleans has to offer right at their doorstep is the recently renovated Hilton New Orleans Riverside. This full service luxury complex is actually “a city within itself” and features a 90,000 square foot Health Club, 130,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space and on-site dining.
A hotel’s true colors are often masked online by boring, generic text and small, uninspiring images that fail to excite and entice travel shoppers to book. But, even when carnival season arrives and the Mardi Gras masks go on, this hotel continues to show its true colors to online travel shoppers using VBrochure.
Their video, virtual tours and photos displayed within VBrochure’s VPowered Multi-Media Viewer provide a completely realistic view of the hotel’s surroundings, guestrooms, amenities, and meeting spaces with nothing to hide. “Offering a virtual experience enables consumers to make more qualified booking decisions,” says Kim Engel, Marketing Manager, Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
She goes on to explain that “Video tours and virtual images let your guests feel as if they are present at your hotel and let them explore it. They create a connection between the consumer and the hotel.” A testament to that is the fact that their rich media views across thousands of channels are on the rise with an 87% increase in a single month.
Their Facebook page also tells their story – with a combination of updates from the hotel, a reviews section with comments from guests and a “TOUR OUR HOTEL” section that displays their video, virtual tours and photos in their VPowered Multi-Media Viewer. It’s an experience that blends the social with the visual all in one place and helps travelers get up close and personal with the hotel.
