Independent hotel brand Preferred Hotels & Resorts launched its new website. The company’s updated online presence will put visuals first, provide member hotels with new merchandising opportunities on the homepage and introduce new filters such as travel theme and luxury level to its search function.

Preferred Hotels and Resorts’ new site will highlight each member hotel through large-scale, vibrant photography and lively, expanded property guides. Additionally, these hotels can choose from a variety of new merchandising opportunities to target visitors on the site’s enhanced homepage. On each hotel’s page, visitors will be able to scroll through a real-time feed of TripAdvisor consumer reviews.

The site’s search function has received an upgrade, with additional filters such as travel theme, destination, type of property and level of luxury. The new website will also be fully-responsive, allowing the site’s structure to translate seamlessly between mobile devices, tablets and desktop computers.
