Hotel Book

| 0 TrackBacks

Pegasus has announced plans to build a new consumer website focusing on
independent hotels. It will be called Hotel Book and will compete with
major hotel chains websites. Hotel websites presently have 80% of the US
Internet market. This web site will give independent hotels a chance to
market to the consumer directly.

Yes, but will Hotel Book turn the page and cover the essentials needed by travelers with disabilities or will a visit to the web site bring a stifled yawn and a "Been there. Done that." click through?

A useable hotel site needs:

  • Category distinctions that are meaningful to people with disabilities.

  • Levels of detail, such as measurements and actual floorplans, that allow for informed consumer choice.

  • Information that is readily accessible in various formats


  • For a good discussion of what is necessary read Bruce Cameron's Easy Access Australia.
