Having been tapped by Google (as were many others) to field test new ideas, I am a "homer" for their innovative ideas.
To whit: i-Google, the one page customizable to my needs launched a couple years back. Why can't Marriott adopt a similar approach--making each visitor able to select those items they want and not have the rest? Google's customer base is easily as large as Marriott's and most likely a hundred times greater, so this is not that hard to do.
So, why not have an i-Marriott welcome page that (for my needs) would have only the following information:
This would make Marriott.com very usable for me and many other mega-users.
I have never used google and wonder if my life is any less "complete"? As far as a personalized homepage for Marriott, while supporting it whole-heartedly, I guess the only question would be how does Marriott personalize it while maintaining all the necessary corporate propaganda on the page?
