Morgans Hotel Group has launched a new website, with a sleek design, improved functionality and enabling users to book a hotel within four clicks.
Morganshotelgroup.com also debuts Morgans Hotel Group’s curated Google Maps that provide interactive guides to top attractions and destinations around each hotel.
New York-based digital agency Firstborn was selected to conceptualize, design and build the dynamic new website.
“We spent months analysing guest feedback and researching digital preferences with a focus on online retail. Our vision for the new site was to create a user experience that is not only streamlined but also immersive and interactive,” said Kim Walker, senior vice president of brand and marketing and creative director at Morgans Hotel Group.
“Morgans Hotel Group brings together the creative power of many—designers, artists, musicians—to constantly push the boundaries of what a hotel can be and the goal was for our new website to reflect this. By integrating curated Google Maps, tailored local content and social media assets, our guests can not only make reservations with ease and simplicity, but they can further engage with our brands and culture throughout the booking process,” she added.
More details from Morgans on site’s new features:
• Booking Functionality: Guests are now able to book multiple rooms at one time, view hotels by brand or location, compare rates and availability at properties within the same city all on one screen, and convert rates to more than 160 different currencies.
• Interactive Google Maps: Guests can now interact with the city they’re looking to visit through the website’s new curated Google Maps. These maps highlight points of interest around the hotel including museums, restaurants, nightlife destinations and shops and provide step-by-step directions to and from the hotel. The list will range from key local landmarks to hidden gems hand-selected by our expert concierges.
• Back of House Content: Content from Morgans Hotel Group’s online culture magazine, Back of House, has been seamlessly integrated into the new website. Tastemakers, influencers, artists and celebrities contribute exclusive content, including interviews, expert tips, behind the scenes footage and playlists. The website also integrates Back of House’s dedicated nightlife calendar which showcases the hottest events in each city taking place during your stay.
• Social Media Integration: With one click, guests can instantly post their travel plans on any of their social media platforms. In addition, the website features photos from Morgans Hotel Group’s Instagram feed as well as guest-generated photos for added inspiration.
