If you have to be stuck in place, you might as well make it an impressive one.
Below you’ll find a growing series of enchanting hotel scenes that can be used as virtual backgrounds for your Zoom conference calls. Just right-click or control-click on your favorite and save the image to your own computer, then follow these instructions for how to upload to Zoom. We’ve even included alternate versions for those who have Zoom’s mirror effect enabled.
No calls? No problem. These images also make for some appropriately aspirational wallpaper for your computer or smartphone, with scenes from Tulum, Patagonia, the Maldives, and more.
We’ll continue adding to the list as long as we’re all working from home, so keep checking back. If you have a specific hotel image request, let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to get permission from the hotel and create it for you. Finally, we’d like to thank all of the participating hotels for letting us produce these and helping everyone bring a little travel into their homes.
