Max Starkov, HeBS president and CEO, "In addition to unique and creative design, the awards committee values usability issues like the tiered navigational structure, trust and credibility of content, and the overall marketing messages. Hoteliers appreciate the increasing importance of these factors in ensuring that an attractive website also produces revenues and grows the direct-to-consumer online distribution strategy.

All five award winners clearly understand the competitive advantages of a well executed Internet strategy with a powerful web presence that enables them to reach out directly to their customers, lessening dependence on third parties and avoiding price and brand erosion. This award underscores the importance of how a creative, informative, visually pleasing Website can add genuine value to hotel marketing and distribution efforts."

According to Denis Strekalov, Art Director, "a hotelier's ability to generate consumer interest in their property relies on the successful union of an e-marketing strategy and creative design. We proudly develop sites that create the hotel experience, before the guest steps foot into the hotel. This philosophy has guided our business and we are extremely proud to have our efforts recognized with all winners."
