We love Instagram. It's a simple social space where we can enjoy family and friends' intimate photos while at the same time stalk celebrities, pick up fashion tips, laugh at animals doing adorable things, drool over dishes from exotic restaurants and best of all, admire crazy killer views from all over the world.
But is it a place where eyou want to book your hotel room? Conrad Hotels hopes so.
The Hilton Hotels brand has partnered ups with Like2Buy technology to allow followers to book a hotel through Instagram. Here's how it works:
· Follow @ConradHotels on Instagram.
· Click the Like2Buy link in their bio. You'll be taken to your mobile browser.
· Select a photo of a recent hotel featured on the Conrad Hotels' Instagram.
· Book room.
· Arrive at room, promptly Instagram photo of room you booked through Instagram.
This technology is actually pretty cool and very simple. But we do hope you would do more research on your hotel room beyond just liking a photo on Instagram. As we all know, hotel photos can be very misleading. So be sure to read up on the reviews as well as any special notes on the hotel's website (construction, renovation, closures, etc.) and of course, any extra fees like those for WiFi (which the Conrad Seoul shown here, does charge.)
