Koh Kek Wen's curator insight, October 7, 2014 8:45 PM

As many people know, some hotel websites are not posting the actual photos of their products such as rooms, facilities and others. This may influence the customers' perspective towards the hotels once they arrived. Nowadays, majority of travelers will look through the many hotel's website before they decide to reserve a room. Usually a traveler will watch a promotional video via travel website or the hotel website itself as this is more accurate compared to the photos. However, travelers will be directed to other hotel's website if there is a link attached to the same page. Most travelers are looking for the type of rooms, facilities, amenities and transportation that best suited their needs and wants which will be their final decision.Online video showcase of a room represents a hotel's reputation to the outside world, therefore, it is very important that the hotel must show their specialties to the customers to help them make the best choice. To maintain long term business for a hotel, they must always update the newest promotional videos or photos to their website to attract more attention from customers.
