Hotel images can be deceptive. They use every trick in the book to make a cramped room look more spacious and a back-alley view seem picturesque. Never be fooled again. Google is expanding its wildly popular Street View service to include hotel lobbies, lounges, pools and rooms. Online tours are already available for Toronto’s Trump Hotel and the Best Western chain, with more hotels expected in the coming months. Keep your eyes peeled for Google search queries that return a “See inside” option for a series of high-resolution, panoramic photos stitched together to create a 360-degree interactive experience.
