Hotelier Seeks Website Design Tips on LinkedIn

February 13, 2008 at 2:58 PM | by | Comments (8)

If you're not familiar with LinkedIn, it's kinda like Facebook for business professionals who want to network online except without the beer pong tournament pics and Scrabulous.

The site also has a forum page where professionals can ask other professionals for advice. Take for example this question from Lyle P, who is a "Hospitality and Hotel General Manager":

We're developing a hotel and would like feedback as to which funky-cool hotel company has the most capturing design-hotel website?

Well, it's a good thing that these hoteliers are doing their research. In the suggestions given, LinkedIn members suggested The Shore Club website which is a part of Morgans Hotel Group and is thus similar to every Morgans hotel website (Delano, Mondrian, etc.) But this person liked that you can download The Shore Club CD right from iTunes.

Another suggested Qbic Hotels and yet another suggested the UK's Malmasion chain. But may we suggest avoiding anything that looks like the Wynn Las Vegas website and refraining from automatic music play? That's a good start.

I don't know about capturing, but most irritating has to go to the Bryant Park Hotel's mess.

Re: Hotelier Seeks Website Design Tips on LinkedIn

Agreed. I can't stand music at all, let alone music you can't turn off.

Re: Hotelier Seeks Website Design Tips on LinkedIn

you know what annoys me about Bryant Park? they make it impossible for you to use your back browser button. so everytime you try to go back to the previous page (hotelchatter usually for me) it just refreshes. how evil!

Re: Hotelier Seeks Website Design Tips on LinkedIn

I figured out how to turn Bryant Park's music office, but with each click on a link, it comes back. I think the Wynn one is worse - but any website that doesn't allow you to see pages as separate URLs annoys the crap out of me. Wynn and Bryant Park both do it - and all of the One & Only websites. Those stink too.

No one suggested Tablet or Mr. & Mrs. Smith? Tablet has the itunes option too.
Ugh linkedin. Myself and my "business professional" coworkers are all on facebook, and mainly for the scrabulous and displaying of pictures from company-sponsored beer pong.
