Comments about Concierge.com:
This site is wonderful to get information and ideas about almost any travel destination. It also gives a lot of creative and unique ideas for travel that you may have never thought of. For example, when I was searching for hotels, it showed me an article about "outdoor hotel suites" I had no idea that type of thing even existed, but reading the article made me want to try it sometime! They provide a great deal of alternative ideas to the typical tourist "trap" places and attractions.
I really loved the way the break down the categories for each destination into hotels, restaurants, see and do, shopping, nightlife, videos, maps, reviews. I like that you can "save" items to a list and have all of your ideas in one area. This was really useful when I was planning our trip to Rome.
The only down side is that every two or three pages you get a pop up ad for Conde Naste Travel magazine. I understand this is the parent company of this site, but I wish this pop up didn't keep appearing.
Ease of Use
It is very easy to navigate and find the specific information you are looking for.
Comments about Concierge.com:
**Want an inspiring travel web site?**Concierge,com is the visually stunning online partner to Conde Nast's Travel & Leisure magazine. The magazine has long had the most gorgeous travel photos and in-depth reporting, on destinations around the world. Now the companion web site serves up the same juicy info in a format that's fun to scan, delightful to read, and visually appealing.
The "Tools" section alone makes the site a gem for travelers (maps, currency converter, cellphone interface, etc) but the Destination and Travel Ideas sections will really get your heart racing. With just as much detail as the magazine offers, Concierge.com lays out all sorts of great information and inspiration.
Planning a honeymoon? Need a weekend getaway? Want to know more about a foreign country? Looking for a restaurant recommendation in a city you're travelling to? You'll find it here. Plus forums are a great way to see what locals and recent visitors have experienced.
The Lists section of the web site lets you see what Conde Nast readers have chosen, as their favorite cruise ships, ski resorts, golf resorts, and Hot Lists which include - foodies, take note! - the hottest "tables" in the country.
***Libby's Hot Tip:** Visitors also get access to cool T&L magazine content, like the monthly "Where Are You?" contest. A partnership with Expedia also allows instant hotel and flight booking from the site, when the undeniable urge to travel strikes. And believe me: on concierge.com, the urge will stirike!*
Concierge.com is a terrific web site for travel junkies, armchair travelers and everyone in between. So much great content, so many beautiful photos, and unlimited travel ideas!
Bottom Line: ***Libby Loves It!***
