A hotel's online reservation system should entice customers to want to stay at the hotel. Pictures of the property are the best way to show customers why they want to stay at your hotel. Presentation and functionality are also a major factor. Can the guest find all the important information easily? Hotel address, phone number, and name? This information should be displayed on your booking engine page and can be easily customized and formatted for Open Hotel clients through the content management system.
There are many different ways to customize your Open Hotel booking engine results page. This is the page that website visitors will see when they click to view rates and reserve. The results page shows your room rates and availability and allows guests to click to book their room.

This customization is offered at no cost and can be further customized by the client. Upon logging in to the admin area, if you navigate back to the home page (click "Home Page" under Quick Links in the top left hand corner), you can change any of the text or images on the header, and add additional text below the reservation dates box. Simply hit the ESC key three times to go into edit mode. A red dotted line will surround the areas that you can edit. A black editor bar will appear from the top that you will use to format the text, add pictures, hyperlinks and more. You can read detailed instructions for customizing your header here.
