Are you worried that drones and security cameras now follow your every move? Here’s a new spy-on-you service you’ll actually enjoy. Google and several hotel chains now offer travelers advance photoramas of their rooms, to arrive days before check-in. Guests are able to view it all on computers, tablets and smartphones.

Best Western International has launched Google Business Photos for all 2,200 of its North American hotels. Additionally, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, parent company of Radisson, Radisson Blu, and Country Inns & Suites, already have their pilot program in place in its hotels in Chicago, Miami and Washington, D.C.

Google Business Photos are 360-degree tours powered by Google Street technology. Many businesses have used the technology for security, repair, construction and other applications since it was introduced several years ago. Of course, it won’t be too long before just about every hotel in the world will offer this room preview service.
