It is a well-known fact that websites play an integral role in the brand establishment. Hotel businesses need this powerful tool to present services to their online audience and thereby, inspire customers to book a suite. It is interesting to know how hotels are presented online and what their websites look like.
Unfortunately, I have seen too many luxury hotels on casual websites with so-so designs. Still, I have done my best to gather the fabulous finds of mine in this inspiring post.
