Each Hotel Portal was customized per property according to corporate standards, hotel features and amenities, as well as categorized locals information via "Around Town", which acquainted hotel guests with local venues, customs, events, and other areas of target market interest. Categories would vary depending on the community profile.

Using the Windom Rose Hall Resort and Country Club as a sample, "AROUND TOWN" features would be:

  • Attractions
  • Beaches
  • Events
  • Local Services
  • Night Life
  • Recreation
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping
  • Transportation

The "ATTRACTIONS" would be organized in sub-categories:

  • Ammusement Parks
  • Educational Exhibits
  • Landmarks
  • Museums & Exhibits
  • Parks & Gardens

Considerable press and media attention was drawn toward this particular portal asset due to it's patented uniqueness and level of value-added quality added to the guest experience.

Image Magic provided the research to populate the portal's "Around Town" database and made content decisions.
