Shallana Edwards, Director of Internet Marketing for Shell Vacations Hospitality
We LOVE the new website! The design, the usability and the effectiveness are amazing. We even got a thumbs up from the owners! I have noticed a big uptick in meeting leads since the site went live as well. That is a very good thing. Thank you for sticking with us through the zillions of changes and making this website the envy of the industry!

"We are very pleased that HeBS won these awards (the Web Marketing Association presented HeBS with two WebAwards for work created for The Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch and for High Velocity in Indianapolis). We have enjoyed a great working relationship with everyone on their team, and they are creating some exceptionally creative work."
Michael Bennett, Vice President of eCommerce and Communication for White Lodging
"The new website is gorgeous (http://www.labellasera.com/index.php)! It ended up being perfect - I am hopeful we can gain some industry or website accolades as you and your team certainly deserve them."
"I’ve worked with Hebs on everything from upscale limited service properties to the finest luxury boutiques and even developed an entire eCRM initiative for a national brand and the HeBS digital think tank continues to amaze me while exceeding my exacting expectations. Each marketing effort is carefully crafted for its productive potential; both collateral piece and hotelier provided an educational approach in the process. Few marketers are brilliant enough to teach their trade and leave the customer knowing that even after you become an advanced student, there remains irreplaceable value in consulting with them again and again. In the rapidly changing hospitality internet marketing environment it is of paramount importance that businesses understand not only best practice but future trends when making advertising and marketing decisions. I’ll attest to Max’s team and their credo having already been achieved."
Mike Harris, Vice President, Ledgestone Hospitality, LLC
"We are excited to be associated with the industry's best HeBS"
Bill Linehan, CMO of Richfield Hospitality / Sceptre Hospitality Resources
"I have long admired and have derived much value from the insight of Max Starkov and his colleagues at HeBS. Since at least 2003, when I served as an e-commerce executive with vacation exchange leader Interval International, I have looked forward to receiving my monthly update from the experts in transformative hospitality strategy at HeBS; in every newsletter I would fine actionable ideas that would be directly applicable to opportunities or challenges in my own work, even when the context wasn't always directly applicable. Perhaps the most complimentary comment I might share is that Max and his organization are true, passionate evangelists committed to driving e-business optimization throughout the lodging sector - one client at a time. Whether your hotel or resort is a single-location entity, or the largest brand in the industry, I sincerely suggest that HeBS be on any short list of potential strategic, consultative partners."
William J Brown, Executive in global digital marketing, interactive management and e-commerce
"Max and everyone on this project, thanks so much for the great effort on the roll-out. I thoroughly believe this will change the way we do business and benefit our franchisees immensely."
Brendan Watters, CEO of Boomerang Hotels
"Max is brilliant - we certainly recommend any providers, products and services that our clients have had great success with and HeBS is definitely tops!"
Ivana Johnston, Marketing Consultant
"This is beautifully prepared [Inn at ONU website] and well done. Thank you! I remain in awe of our new website; very pleased that HeBS was recommended and embraced the opportunity."
Tallene Eichelberger, from the Inn at ONU
"As AmericInn responds to the hotel industry's distribution change from telephone reservations to Internet reservations, HeBS's industry expertise, ability to tailor their services to fit our unique needs, and attention to detail has been very helpful. I would highly recommend them to other hotel chains that want to stay up-to-date with constantly changing technology."
Arnold Angeloni, CEO of AmericInn International, LLC
"HeBs and its talented team of seasoned eCommerce professionals have their pulse on the online world as well as the hospitality industry. They readily recognize and are able to capitalize on emerging trends--and their unique combination of industry knowledge, pioneering leadership, and technology support makes them a great partner for Choice Hotels International."
Paula Valentine, Senior Director, eCommerce for Choice Hotels International
"I am very proud and pleased with your efforts on our behalf. The web site is already a great success and it is beginning to show in the number of reservations and inquiries we receive. You and your associates did a great job and all of us thank you! You have such a positive attitude and all our comments and requests are handled with great care and follow through which make it a real pleasure to work with you."
Manfred Gerling, Consultant for New Harmony Inn
"I have had the pleasure of working with Max and his Team for many years on several hotel and destination resort projects. Our collaborations have won many awards for both design and ROI for webdesign, site navigation and eMarketing. All of the projects have exceeded market share expectations for average rate, occupancy and RevPAR. Pushing the envelope for developing strategies to deeply penetrate the market has been a successful hallmark of HeBS. Max and the HeBS Team have demonstrated a very high level of expertise and responsiveness to their client's individual requirements. Delivering an outstanding product and service; on time and within budget has been consistently achieved by the HeBS Team. I look forward to continue working with HeBS on current and future projects."

We hail Max and Jason for their tireless efforts in bringing together the wheat and cutting out the chaff."
