If you read our blog on a regular basis or have ever come across one of our articles, you’ll notice we rarely, if ever, promote our own services as a company. We don’t use our blog to plug ourselves but instead discuss digital marketing trends that often focus on the hospitality industry since we cater to hotels. We typically don’t ask for direct responses from our readers but welcome genuine insightful discussions on our comments sections. However, E-Marketing Associates is currently revamping our website design program and for the first time, we are asking for your help to make our web design program the best it can be. Don’t worry – it’s easy, and there’s even an incentive to participate (details below)!
Internally, we have come up with a list of our top 10 favorite hotel websites that we evaluated based on the current web trends. We looked at the website design, functionality, content, speed, etc. We have included screenshots and links to the respective websites below.
Where you come inWhat we want from you, our readers, is feedback on these websites. Which are your favorites? What aspects do you like or dislike? Keep in mind the characteristics mentioned above – design, functionality, content, speed, etc. Do you have other favorite hotel websites that aren’t included below? You can make your observations based on the screenshots, but we encourage you to visit the hotels’ sites and click around to get a more in-depth look.
RewardWe are offering three $25 Starbucks cards to the three most authentic and insightful responses. We prefer you to comment below but we will also accept responses on Facebook, Twitter, social bookmarking sites, etc.
Again, this is only for internal purposes and we are just looking for honest input from hoteliers, marketers, designers, etc. on what makes hotel websites great. We would also really appreciate you sharing this with your colleagues and friends so we can get as much feedback as possible. Start scrolling and we’ll see you in the comments section!
