Award-winning management company Destination Hotels has a broad portfolio featuring over 40 properties from coast to coast along with 20 renowned golf courses, 19 indigenous spas and 105 exceptional bars and restaurants. In order to streamline and customize their website, Destination Hotels is migrating to Sitecore.
Using a standard set of HTML templates for each property site, Hedgehog worked with the marketing team from each individual property to create a customized set of CSS emphasizing the distinct look and feel of the properties’ brand.
A set of custom performance improvements have decreased page render times for the corporate Destination Hotels website from approximately 1.2 seconds to 500 milliseconds.
To improve the client’s ability to manage and update Sitecore content, Hedgehog created custom PowerShell scripts to transform and automate a reorganization of Destination Hotels’ media library. Using datasources, Hedgehog rebuilt the presentation layer of the websites adding support personalization and A/B testing.
Destination Hotels offers a varied collection of refined properties that are unique and “diverse by design”; each hotel or resort utilizes the outstanding qualities of their location, including local geography and culture. During the migration to Sitecore, Hedgehog used a standard template for consistency, while providing each location with a custom set of CSS to highlight the individuality of each property.
