As mentioned before, individuals can view the accommodation before actually purchasing or agreeing to any transaction.

Therefore having an in-depth perspective from the Google street 360 view tool, it is easier for you to decide whether or not you want to be booking a room there. This goes the same way with your itinerary planning. Say you want to visit a restaurant in a city that you are visiting but you have no idea how the restaurant looks like.
