I am looking for someone talented to create a website for me.
This website will be used as a directory to the top hotels in a certain area.
I don't want just a boring directory site - it has to look good, giving off the "luxury" vibe.
A site - in either php OR asp
- you can use any existing work you may have done or even a CMS - IF it fills the requirements
Admin backend to add more hotels
Each hotel listing to have a thumbnail image area, details on the hotel with tags - ie. Swimming Pool - Yes/No etc.
These tags must be searchable.
On the main front page, i would like to incorporate a flash map of the world or a specific country - where each hotel would be representated by a small pushpin icon or something - clicking this would then open the hotel's information page.
Searching is a key criteria - i need the ability to go on the site, and do a search for - Hotel in Dubai (for example) with swimming pool as a must.
A site that i would like to take lots of inspiration from is
[url removed, login to view]
All hotels will be added by the admin, so no need for any user accounts.
For each hotel page, a comments ability would be nice so guests could leave feedback on each hotel
This bid is for the first stage.
If it goes according to plan, i would like to reuse the winning person to continue to work on the site on a regular basis.
