I love this design, a great job done. This is just a thought of mine, please don’t take offense cos the workmanship is unquestionable!

On the thanks.php Page


1) Add RSS feed to blog

2) Just a thought to keep the visitor on the site we could add more. Also, do we need the quick form on this page? In place I would love to see an incentive for the visitor… Banner: “Click here to receive a free ______”

Just my 2 cents!

I see the sunshine icon Britt. You know that lights up a room!

You are very passionate about your work Britt, that's one of the main ingredients of being the best at what you do.

The only reason I know your personality is because I am not much different when it comes to passion for my work...for better or worst :D

My heart felt Congrats to everone who has been a part of this site. This site is one of my personal favourites.

The innovative gallery is mindblowing and deserves high praise, one for outsourcing the script and another for its customization and integartion. I know a lot of effort has gone behind it and i assure you it was worth it.

The Homepage slideshow has also been neatly presented and just adds to the rich features offered by the site.


GREAT JOB Phoenix Team :D

This a beautifully designed website that should engage senses of most visitors looking for Philadelphia hotels.

Couple of things i would suggest.

http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/resta ... ---------- the title on this page is a mess.

http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/recre ... .php------ there are so many links pointing out from this page we can no follow them retain the PR juice back into the website.

There is one other thing that i would suggest. In the primary navigation of the website we have " facilities". In the hospitality industry "facilities" & amenities give out a slightly different meaning. Use a specialist travel search engine and you ll find that its the " amenities" that are most looked for by leisure travellers so they ll be things like swimming pool, jacuzzi, indoor pool and whirlpool and facilities are looked by most business travellers and are conference room, wifi etc.

The majority share of travelers are looking for " amenities" and so its more semantically close to the idea of leisure travel and hospitality.

I have to agree with PG. This is a special site. I think it reflects a great deal of thought. Why is it different for us? I think that it is really nice aesthetically, but it is one of my favorite site builds I have seen. There is thought put behind the content! Its great!

AS usual I thought I would point out some issues that I think need attention right away.

HOMEPAGE
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/

- there are lots of items on this page that look like they should be text links but in fact they are not. You should link the point notes under facilities to photo images because that is what the user would want to see.
- the items in the middle of the page should be sent to a page about accommodations or images of the facility depending on the link. Right now they go no where.

Contact Page
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/conta ... elphia.php

I think that given the majority of the people coming to this want to STAY at the Hilton that the page we should be using as the main contact page should actually be: http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/direc ... elphia.php

At the bottom of this page there could then be a link for "Corporate Information".

SiteMap
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/sitemap.php

- missing a Title Tag

BLOG
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/blog/

Title tag should definitely mention Philadelphia as its a blog about the area.

Photo Gallery
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/photo ... -hotel.php

- it seems to load really slow.

Facilities
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/facilities-hotel.php

- I love the flash movie you chose to put in there. It is very relevant!

Accomodations
http://www.hiltongardenphilly.com/hotel ... elphia.php

- we should definitely be putting more images of the room in this page. People arent logging here to read, they want to see images! A quick slide of images to show room features and point form notes would be great.



Great job guys!

One more point I wanted to mention. Conversations like this can really help use supercharge our websites for 2009 and beyond. IM is a perpetual motion.


Cheers,

Rob
