Reading the Google News ticker this morning we ran into some extraordinary images via hotel pages on G +, so we thought we would share. For the travel enthusiast, there is perhaps no imagery more effective than the views of and from a hotel. For the hotelier, imagery is certainly the Holy Grail of media. Let’s look at some extraordinary examples from random hotels.
Google Plus Grange Hotels
Grange Hotels, a collection of 16 luxury accommodations in the heart of London, shows off their wares via g+ very effectively. From exquisiteness of furnishings to that special quality of being inviting, Grange obviously knows a lot about their clientele and reflecting class. The first image below conveys lavishness of quality, color, atmosphere, and a near perfect sense of impact. You can feel the comfort, the warm surround, almost taste this place, can’t you?
And, you say you wanted to see London? Well, the image below from Grange Hotels’ City delivers. Situated only half a mile from Tower Bridge, the Grange City is a perfect London weekend luxury base, doubles from Friday to Monday morning start at £ 384.00 total for two persons, excluding VAT.
Mandarin Oriental – Hyde Park
While the Mandarin Oriental presence on g+ does not extend to the individual hotel pages, the group’s profile does possess a hint of what one of the world’s great hotels chains offers in the concrete world. The image below of from their Condé Nast Traveller’s Gold List 2012 album is an attention grabber. One can only hope the hotel populates their profile with more like this one.
The old saying; a picture… applies to the SAVOY in every sense. Any snapshot of London’s most iconic hospitality edifice is sure to evoke a feeling of opulent splendor, the one below being as good a g+ one as exists. While the hotel’s Google Plus presence lacks the polish one would expect, the few images that are there presented, are indicative.
Langham Hotels Collection
Langham Hotels’ Google images are superb. The hotel social guru out there may not be exactly the “cat’s meow” where navigating and presenting superfluous user engagement, but the hotel’s marketing and photographic peeps know their business. The London contingent below, The London entrance, is what any guest would expect. I mean, Angelina and Brad cannot just drive up in a 68 VW Beetle and be met by London’s best hobo, now can they?
This Google Plus presence is not just a fine hotelier’s effort (check out the Hazlitt’s site) to engage the social realm, it is a collection of spas, hotels, hotel groups, travel media and travel technology companies presented by a leading edge marketing firm – The Augustus Collection. If the name alone does not spur your interest, then the comfy digs below should tantalize your exclusivity genes.
There’s a bit of hospitality eye candy for you, of course there are hundreds more Google Plus hotel and hospitality profiles to intrigue. Let us know your finds when you have the time, we’ll put together another story for everyone. Cheers until more the next segment.
