Photos also accompany several other informational sections of a Four Season's hotel's landing page and when you click on the "Accommodations" page, you will even see a photo of the bathroom toiletries. (That's L'Occitane at the Four Seasons Palm Beach.)
But perhaps what we liked the best when browsing through a Four Seasons home page was the Destination section which has a large Google Map embedded into the page so you don't have to click on a pop-up box or go to another page and wait for a map to load. (You can however, click "Read More" and get more in-depth information.)
Rounding out the new offerings is the "Discover" section which features stories from inside the hotel and profiles and interviews with hotel employees. You can even make a reservation at the hotel's restaurant directly through OpenTable.com. Finally, a hotel website that gets us!
We can't believe we're saying this but we're quite pleased with the Four Seasons redesign. They've taken a stuffy and traditional website transformed it into a stylish, functional and appealing hotel magazine for the wired generation of travelers...with a booking function of course.
We just hope that Hilton Hotels, whose websites could use some jazzing up, is paying attention.
