From feeling the warmth of the fire pits at Lone Star Court in Austin to seeing the sprawling poolside cabanas at Cavalry Court in College Station, Valencia Group has brought its Court hotels in Texas to life with the debut of a 360-degree virtual reality experience on the hotels’ websites.

Valencia Group’s Court brand launched a virtual reality tour feature that’s as helpful as it is amusing. Now, future guests and travelers can take a full 360-degree look into Lone Star Court and Cavalry Court to explore the elements that makes the Court brand so unique: vintage SMEG refrigerators, courtyards adorned with fire pits, unique pool spaces, live music, chic design, and more. The idea is that through digitally exploring any one of the Court hotels, the user will get a good idea of what to expect from future Court properties: a truly unique and personal experience.

The Process

Valencia Group partnered with YouVisit, an industry leader in creating virtual reality experiences for hospitality and educational institutions. The technicians took a two-day road trip to visit two Court hotels, capturing 360-degree photos (think of those funky cameras on top of the Google maps cars) in different locations and spaces to gather a movie-like experience. This digital hotel shows aspects of the courts that create an authentic look at the unique grounds.

How to Access

Head to Cavalry Court or Lone Star Court. On the homepage, simply scroll down to the “Virtual Tour” button, click, and explore!

The Experience

The tours are available on both Lone Star Court and Cavalry Court’s websites as of now. When accessing the tour on a smartphone or tablet, guests are actually able to move around and experience the rooms as if they were physically there. From the restaurants crowds with a guitarist playing solo to the small details like rocking chairs outside your room and fire pits with s’mores materials, the easy-to-navigate program offers the in-depth look many hotels don’t, complete with voice-over information and pop-up blurbs providing additional details on exactly what you’re looking at. This will encourage users to interact with what they are seeing, like Lone Star Court’s extensive pool and courtyard or Cavalry Court’s official greeter, Jack, the Australian Shepard.

Next Up

In November, Valencia Group welcomes Texican Court into the family – the Irving, Texas-based midcentury chic, Southwestern-inspired hotel – which you can get a feel for now by checking out the virtual reality tours that embody all the aspects guests know and love about the Court hotels.
