Here are five best practices for you to follow:
1). Responsive design: The hotel websites should be well supported on all devices.
2). Excellent user experience: Simplified website browsing process can bring a good user experience. Because if it is difficult to find a common page or arrive at the reservation page to complete the purchase, it is likely to lose many potential users.
3). Storytelling: Does your website understand what a guest expects once they have checked in? Is it able to guide the visitor along the path? Remember to display all your hotel information in a clear storytelling style, step by step.
4). Convenient booking: Make the booking process as simple as possible for a maximum return. The tedious user information and payment information filling may result in the loss of users.
5. Visual reality: The best and most effective website is a website that attracts visitors to spend time exploring. Professional photography and video are great media for storytelling, especially for hotels and resorts.
The molding of a hotel website design generally goes through a lot of design processes. From the very beginning, at the stage of prototyping design, it decides the page layout of the site. Good tools will help you to do more with less. I'll take the example of a website prototype produced by Mockplus as an example to show you the charm of this rapid prototyping tool.
