    Well, this is going to be interesting. I started a hotel a couple of months ago and the day to book a room starts April 3, and now I am close to starting another hotel, date to be ready to book rooms is well...not clear yet....this hotel is still under construction

    I would love to receive some reviews about my site please? It's a pre-existing theme I bought but changed some things around to fit to what I wanted.

    I've always wanted to own a hotel in the past and so here I am...going to own 2 hotels total...if business is good, more hotels=more money for myself...(don't worry I donate to charities:) on occasion...(my donation goal, is to feed/clothe/clean a homeless person for a week straight...find them a job/home....once a year (different homeless person/per year.)

    Click here to go to my site please and give me an honest review. Is the site theme good/goes with my sites concept? Colors are okay on the eyes? or not?

    Font too small? or too big/annoying?

    - The only thing I don't want to see is messages about the site logo...(I am horrible at graphics/will get one done by some nice person in the forums soon).

    Thank you for your time and consideration to help me with my site!

    From John Klyne.

    I think you are on a premium kind of server.Hence the high speeds even though Js and CSS are still to be optimized.
    I wanted to inform you this so that this will not miss out when you get the graphics done by a programmer.
    There are 9 JavaScript scripts found in the head of the main page.These are to be combined into one so that you minimize http requests

    * http://virtualhotels.lagronsinc.com/wp-content/themes/columbia/assets/js/jquery.bgpos.js
    * http://virtualhotels.lagronsinc.com/wp-content/themes/columbia/assets/js/jquery.dropdownPlain.js
    * http://virtualhotels.lagronsinc.com/wp-content/themes/columbia/assets/js/jquery.prettyPhoto.js

    Also columbia theme is a nice one.As such graphics are OK.YOu might do good and I wish best luck to your hotel business.

    Thank you for your review, I think it was you that also said the same thing with my seduction blog, and it's scripts that can be combined. I'm going to look into that, so that I can check if maybe I can do it.

    Thanks for your tips.

    From, John.

    The images at the bottom of the page are broken.

    Yes, the images below "About us", "our hotels", etc.
    It's rather strange, because when I try to open the image on a new tab it appears on the new tab.
    On the home page they don't show up for me, both IE as well as Chrome.

    Site looks elegant. The element below footer, is it purposely aligned to the left?

    I like the design! Sorry for the huge screenie, but theres a few things:

    [​IMG]

    First, you need to get rid of that lorem ipsum! :D
    You also need to fix those images, it isn't just me.
    I'm assuming the random lines in the top right are meant to be a navigation bar?

    Good job!

    Thanks for the information...I'm going to remove the images since they don't work for some reason as for the lines top right...there is no navigation bar on the homepage...(it once again doesn't show up on my screen...I have to figure out whats going on.

    I don't know a lot about graphics...the lorem ipsum is a part of the button...(the learn more I can change nd the buy now..but what is under it, I don't know how.)

    The things on the bottom are supposed to be centered...I have to see what is going on with that.

    Thanks for the information/tips/criticisms.

    I'd like to suggest that you fix the images, so we get another perspective of the website. However, this is easily implanted, it's just a tifle (if you know what I mean).

    And what does those "| | | | | |" lines represent? I tried to press one of those, and came into another webpage. You need to put text to the links instead of a "|". ;)

    Looks good, which is impressive since you don't seem to know much about the code!

    The vertical lines appear within "menu-main-menu-container" div, the lorem ipsum is written into the button png and the missing images come from external sites. Need to dig into that code a bit to sort it. But I like the look!

    Agree With Callum.
    But currently the site looks adjusted according to Callum's suggestions.
    Its a super nice corporate template.

    At first glance - Premium. Going a bit deep - no sufficient info.
    Might me add more images and a bit more info onto the home page.
    Just my opinion, rest as I said, it looks premium, royal..
    cheers,

    Your images at the bottom are broken and it will look good also if you change your slideshow to different views of your hotel like happy faces of your costumers something like that.. :redface: Not just a single pictured slideshow. Also your links above is cant be seen ( your home, blog, about us), better changing it to another color. :). And also personally i don't like the color, its to dull and its mode is very serious. Try changing it to an eye caching color. It may generate more customers. this just my opinion sir.

    Hi,
    The images at the bottom where about us, etc are located do not appear. Unless, that is the porpus for it, as only the image word appear.
    Also a bit slow.
    Thanks.

    The site is behaving differently in Opera and in Chrome.
    It works fine( the bottom image placement as posted by V4xde) in mozilla and Ie8 though.
    Did you check for cross browser compatibility or its my PC problem?
