Indian Hotel Launches World’s First Virtual Reality Experience Centre

Virtual reality has been making inroads in various sectors. Following in-flight entertainment, it now seems hotels are getting in on the action as well.

Experiencing Virtual Reality in a Hotel

For entertainment purposes, virtual reality can be a very welcome addition to most companies and service providers. Even hotels stand to gain from embracing this technology, assuming they do so properly. 

Crowne Plaza Greater Noida in Delhi NCR is doing exactly that. At the hotel lobby, users can immerse themselves in a three-dimensional virtual environment. Client requirements are taken into consideration to provide the most optimal experience. 

It is also the first hotel in the world  to effectively embrace virtual reality technology on-site.

Crowne Plaza Greater Noida general hotel manager Ashwani Nayar adds:

“This is the future. VR is such a powerful immersive medium that perfectly complements the experiential nature of our industry. I am certain about the potential this holds for hotels to technologically advance the way we present our product to a prospective client or a business partner.”

If this proves to be successful, other hotels may embrace a similar approach. Virtual reality, while often considered a fad, is still evolving as an industry. It may prove to be a viable addition over time.
