TravelCLICK Wins “Best Hotel and Lodging Website” in 2009 International WebAwards
Record 20 Awards underscores TravelCLICK’s position as the premier digital agency for the hotel industry
TravelCLICK also won the Best Hotel and Lodging Website Award for the Albert Hotel in Riga, Latvia (www.alberthotel.lv). The Albert Hotel is a unique budget hotel named after Albert Einstein and known for its modern design. The goal of the website redesign was to capture the character of the property and improve the online guest experience. Featuring "dynamic best rate" on the home page and clean, simple navigation, the new site provides an enhanced guest experience and communicates the true spirit of the hotel.
"With the Internet as the primary source of bookings for our hotel, strong website design is a basic requirement," said Petr Divis, General Manager of the winning Albert Hotel. "TravelCLICK delivers award-winning design—and more. They provided a comprehensive understanding of consumer shopping behavior, conversion technology, and how to drive traffic through search marketing strategies, helping us maximize bookings through our website."
