Choice Hotels Elite



National Photography Vendor For Choice Hotels

No Annual Fees for Choice Hotel Website Tours or Google Tours

New opening & conversion properties who are working with the Choice Hotels Opening Services Team are required to order either Package C or the Elite Package and may require additional images to meet Choice standards. When you click on “Calculate Your Image Needs” you will be taken to a questionnaire that will help you determine how many total images you will need to order, and this number may exceed our standard packages listed below.

All hotels must order a minimum of 30 still images, and those are included in our base packages listed below. With some larger hotels, however, it will be recommended that you order more still images than are provided in these packages in order to meet Choice Hotel’s desired photography standards. The form below will help you determine how many images that Choice Hotels would suggest you order. After you complete and submit this form, you will receive an email with the number of total images that will provide proper coverage to your hotel. You will then be redirected to the order form where you can choose your desired package and any additional images you would like to include in the order.
