So we click on the box. And then...nothing happens. We click on the box again. Still nothing. When we click on "Reservations", we get pulled into the whole "Select a Date" madness where we can see room descriptions and some small room photos. Clicking on the "Press" button automatically downloads a PDF filled with scans of the hotel's magazine mentions. But this isn't what we are looking for. We want room photos--big ones--and lists of the hotel's amenities, services, restaurants and lounges.
So we start over. We reload the home page and click on the box, we which swore at one point in our research on Cooper Square worked to reveal some flashy stuff and some exterior shots. But there is nothing going on here. We even restarted our web browser to try again. Faulty internet connection or just another minimalist hotel website?
To be fair, the hotel is still in the midst of "opening" as they just recently unveiled their second floor bar and the Table 8 restaurant is still not open.
But we really hope they spend some time on their website too. Guests like to be able to see what they are getting without having to rely on small pictures on the reservations page. And if Cooper Square is afraid of looking "uncool", then might we suggest the formerly "too cool" Morgans Hotel Group's new website?
