    I'm not sure exactly when this change took place, but SPG hotel homepages have a new layout with a larger photo slideshow and less overview/description text.

    Some examples:
    http://www.starwoodhotels.com/westin/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=3560
    http://www.starwoodhotels.com/westin/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=1958
    http://www.starwoodhotels.com/sheraton/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=5624

    I like the direction that they're taking, but I think the photos are too big for the monitor resolution of typical users.

    Thoughts?

    LOL. You seem to have a lot of discretionary time on your hands. Just kidding. [​IMG]

    Well, I figured this was going to be the only way that SPG would end up getting much feedback about it. Really, when I first pull up a page, I can't see the whole photo. It doesn't seem to have been well thought out for the typical user working on a 1024x768 screen.
