5/19/2010

Redesigned Motel6.com is Functional and User-Friendly


Dallas, Texas — Following the award-winning redesign of Motel 6’s new rooms, Motel 6 has launched an equally stylish and functional Web site to match. The updated look showcases the “Phoenix” room design, new logo and its modern splash of color throughout the site. Vibrant pictures and videos display guest rooms and common areas prominently on the home page, further enhancing the site.

“We want our guests’ experience to start when they visit our Web site,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO for Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. “The new design is bright and welcoming, featuring plenty of property and room photos for guests to view before booking their stay.”

Updated features to the “My Motel 6” profile program make reserving a room on motel6.com even easier, and guests can take advantage of numerous rotating deals and travel ideas featured on the homepage.
