The boutique hotel at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry has joined forces with a specialist travel company to upgrade its website.
The new-look 71 Rooms & Silk Suites website is now live following upgrade and design work by TravelCLICK.
Candice Stevens, revenue services manager at the 71 Rooms & Silk Suites hotel, said guests would be able to book rooms and check availability much more easily by logging on to 71rooms.com. Or they can visit the Ricoh Arena’s website at ricoharena.com.
She said: “Having a hotel at the Ricoh Arena is a huge bonus for both the local community and guests visiting the Ricoh Arena for weekend breaks, sporting events, concerts, dinner-dances, conferences and exhibitions.
“Coventry and Warwickshire is a popular region for tourists and our location means we are an ideal base for people visiting the area. The whole site looks more attractive now from a design perspective and as well as being easier to navigate.
“It is more informative because many of our guests are from outside the region. We wanted to make the hotel’s website more user friendly not only in terms of making bookings so that availability and rates can easily be checked but also to give visitors more options.
“The revamped website allows users to book breakfast and dinner in the Singers Bar and Bistro, order Champagne on arrival and look at the various packages that we have.
“It is unusual for a boutique hotel to be located within a multi-use complex and that is one of our key selling points along with the fact that guests can visit the health club, have dinner at Singers or visit the casino during their stay.
“TravelCLICK are specialists at providing easy-to-use booking systems. We are delighted with the results.
“This has been launched just weeks after we discovered the hotel has been nominated in the Godiva Awards 2008. We hope our new website will be another reason for guests to vote for us.”
