As part of its Travel Brilliantly campaign, Marriott has been experimenting with the concept of virtual travel. It first created an elaborate setup involving the Oculus Rift, and it recently introduced a streamlined version using Samsung’s Gear VR. Virtual reality not only lets armchair travelers explore faraway destinations, but also instill wanderlust to book actual travel (and, in Marriott’s case, hopefully a stay at one of its properties).
Watch as couples (just married at New York City Hall) experience a virtual honeymoon via Marriott Hotels virtual travel experience.
