Guesthouse International Franchise Systems, Inc. today announced the launch of their redesigned website, guesthouseintl.com.
The revamped site is faster, easier to use and provides convenient access to reservations at any hotel in the chain directly from the home page. The new site also includes several money-saving Special Offers for travelers.
“Our primary goal was to make guesthouseintl.com extremely easy for both guests and travel agents to use,” said Rob Wilson, president of GuestHouse International. “Everything we`ve done with the site is designed to add value while keeping it intuitive, informative and easy to navigate.”
In addition to instant access to live, online reservations and real-time availability, the new site features faster-loading pages and a clean, new look. A Special Offers page lists money-saving programs from several GuestHouse International hotels. Visitors also have the opportunity to receive special e-mail offers, or sign up for the Friends Club Program that offers discounted rates, upgrades, and special services to members. Visitors can find a wealth of information about each location, including photographs, amenities, maps, directions, rates and area attractions. Guesthouseintl.com visitors can also contact customer service representatives from any page on the site, and even fill out an online comment card.
To promote the new and improved site, GuestHouse International has increased its presence on top search engines such as Yahoo!, Excite, Hotbot, Lycos and Euroseek. The brand is also running a campaign of banner ads on America Online and MSN.
