Luxury Hotel Websites: The More Things Change....

So, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group recently launched their new website, and it's gorgeous.  


At first glance, one can be forgiven for having a deja vu moment as the site's also pretty similar to those recently revamped by their competitors. That's because all of us in the lux hotel business have

More pictures
Bigger pictures
