The dreaming stage plants the seed that consumers need to take a trip. By capturing consumers in this stage, hotels are showing consumers that their dream vacation is a click away. If your hotel’s images are high quality and up to date, consumers will remember your hotel’s visuals when it’s time to plan a trip.
