Hotels.com, an international website for booking hotel rooms online, unveiled a new visual identity yesterday, February 14.
Until now, Hotels.com have used a red logo in United States and Canada and a completely different yellow script logo for the rest of the world. A press release states the new logo is part of a "globally unified marketing platform", the new wordmark has been implemented on the North American websites, while the other versions are still using the yellow logo. The same release states that the new look will launch in full during Q2 in most countries.
"Colorful and bold, the new logo is a visually striking way of showcasing the hotels.com expertise and presence in the travel and hotel industries. The new “H” logo represents the abundance of choices hotels.com provides in destinations, hotel types, and price points. With hotels.com offering so many resources to consumers like ever-changing hotel sales and deals, Welcome Rewards® loyalty program, last-minute deals and mobile booking options, the new “H” logo, along with several complimentary sub-logos, will easily differentiate which sales fall under which categories, making online hotel room shopping even more seamless than before." - Press release

The previous logos were both introduced around 2008. The global identity was developed by Lambie-Nairn. Before that, the website used a very web 1.0 logo with a cartoon bellman that was introduced in 2002.
