Google Hotel Finder now enhanced with See Inside functionality

Google has added “See inside” functionality to Hotel Finder, allowing users and potential guests to check out a hotel in more detail before booking it. The link to launch this functionality is prominently featured on the Hotel Finder property details page. This space launches a standard image gallery and reads “See all photos” for properties that are not participating in the new program. When a user clicks the “See inside” link, a larger interface loads allowing the user to explore the hotel, and view details of mapped areas in high resolution. The user experience is very close to street view, but inside.

To see the functionality live, see these active properties:
