Let’s take a closer look at what this unique feature is, and what it has to offer…

What are Virtual Rooms?

Virtual Rooms are a novel concept, designed to maximise the usability and profitability of existing hotel spaces.

By amalgamating several rooms or spaces into one cohesive unit, hotels can cater to a wider range of guest needs, from large families to groups travelling together.

Here are some ways hotel owners are creatively using Virtual Rooms:

  • Multi-Room Combinations: Imagine a scenario where a hotel on a picturesque floor has a single and a double room adjacent to each other. With Virtual Rooms, these can be combined into a, ‘Top Floor’ suite, offered at a competitive rate. This not only provides guests with expansive space and privacy but also ensures that availability is intelligently managed. If one of the individual rooms is booked, the ‘Top Floor’ option is automatically adjusted accordingly to reflect only the remaining rooms.
  • Adjoining Areas Enhancement: Some properties feature rooms with additional unique spaces, such as an outbuilding adjacent to an apartment. Virtual Rooms can integrate these into a single luxurious offering, in this example, the enhancement could be labelled, ‘Apartment plus Outbuilding’, thereby allowing guests the choice to enhance their stay while providing additional revenue opportunities for the hotel.
  • Flexible Room Configurations: Virtual Rooms can offer dynamic booking options; guests might choose to book the entire accommodation or just a portion, depending on their needs, with unused sections securely locked off to ensure privacy and security.

How It Works

Creating a Virtual Room is straightforward and intuitive:

  1. Select the physical rooms to include.
  2. Set a unified price for the Virtual Room.
  3. Define the total occupancy based on the included spaces.
  4. Add a name and detailed description.

Once established, these rooms are seamlessly integrated into the hotel’s booking calendar, visible alongside standard room options.

They can be published and marketed on major remote booking platforms such as Booking.com, Expedia, Airbnb, and Hotels.com, with availability automatically updated to prevent double bookings.
