Starwood Hotels & Resorts Los Cabos has introduced Virtual Planner, an online programme employing a state-of-the-art 3D interface.
The programme offers views of all function space, with 3D model fly-throughs and details about space dimensions and capacities. Additionally, it allows planners to view real-life examples of how the space can be used effectively and provides the opportunity to create and customize setups – theatre-style, classroom, U-shape, cocktail, gala-dinner and banquet. Planners can add and view details such as linen color and placement of tables, chairs, stage, screens, dance floor and entertainment.
The Virtual Planner is available at the Westin Los Cabos and the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Los Cabos and is expected to roll out to Starwood properties throughout Mexico by mid-year and to U.S. Starwood properties by the end of 2008.
