What is a hotel website design company?

A hotel website design company is a business that offers specialised hotel web design services that help accommodation providers find more potential guests and secure more direct bookings. It is also known as a hotel website design agency or hotel website development firm.

The value of hotel website design agencies

With the overwhelming majority of stays now booked over the internet, a hotel’s online presence has become the critical factor in its success. A website serves as the hub of that presence: the thing that your booking channels, business directory listings, social profiles, ads and marketing efforts link back to.

An expertly crafted hotel website is more likely to lure those potential guests in and convert them into paying customers. That’s why even small, independent hotels choose to partner with a hotel website design agency. These professionals know what works and what doesn’t, and have the skills to implement all the website functionality that a modern guest expects.

For small, independent hotels, hiring a hotel web design company might feel like a step too far, particularly when effective tools like Little Hotelier’s website builder are available. But this is an investment that can drive an incredible return, by creating a website that works as a 24/7 salesperson and booking manager.

If you’re a hotel that recognises the value of this investment, the question becomes where to find a quality hotel web design agency.

Benefits of hiring a hotel website design agency

Why invest in partnering with a hotel website design company? There are a wealth of reasons, but here are six of the most compelling.

Enjoy a website designed to drive bookings

The best hotel website design firms, such as those listed above, tend to begin their builds with the same question: how do we drive more direct bookings? This informs every element of the design, every tool that is integrated, every piece of copy that is written. Direct bookings are also so much more valuable than OTA bookings, which see the likes of Booking.com and Expedia charging commission fees of 15%-25%.

Gain full functionality

With the big OTAs investing millions of dollars in their websites, guests of today are used to a certain level of hotel website functionality. By partnering with a hotel website design company you can ensure your website offers all the tools that a potential guest expects, and delivers a smooth user experience that will result in a lower bounce rate and fewer abandoned carts.

Make it more Google-friendly

Google is the first stop for many travellers looking for accommodation. They type in something like “hotel [location]” then let the search engine guide their journey. A hotel website design company will build you a search engine optimised (SEO) website that will get you ranking high on the Google results page for relevant search terms, significantly increasing site traffic which you can then convert into bookings.

Get the look you’re looking for

Your website is the digital face of your hotel business, so the aesthetic should match the vibe of your hotel, and the imagery should present your accommodation in the most alluring light possible. If you choose well, your hotel website design agency will perfectly align the look of your website with the feel of your hotel and the desires of your target clientele.

Avoid website issue Whack-A-Mole

Move a picture and the whole web page shifts. Add a new tool and another tool stops working. When you build your own site but lack a deep knowledge of how different elements of your website work together, you can find yourself constantly identifying and fixing website issues, only to then identify more. When a site is built properly from the get-go, such issues are minimised.

Earn more revenue

Ultimately, partnering with a hotel website design company can help you to earn more bookings, earn more money from each booking (because they’re made directly with you), and drive far more revenue for your business. In short, this is one of the most impactful investments any hotel can make.

Choosing the best hotel website design company for small accommodation providers

What should you look for when choosing a hotel website design company? A few of the most important considerations include:

  • Industry experience: Hotel website design is rather different from other forms of website design. In fact, it’s a skill set all its own. Choose a firm that specialises in hotel website design, and that is familiar with hotel-specific strategies and tools.
  • A proven track record: A successful hotel website design company will have a proven track record of success, and will be able to offer up examples of these successes, in the form of reviews, testimonials and case studies.
  • Honesty and transparency: The best design firms will be able to clearly explain the whats, whys and hows of their process before your website build starts. They will offer regular updates during the build, and ongoing support afterwards.
  • A focus on tech: From analysing visitor data to implementing tools that drive more direct bookings, the best hotel website design companies will be hotel tech experts who can integrate your site with everything from channel managers to front desk software.
