behind the CLINK

We reinvented the user journey to focus on the social side of Clink, something that was a core value at each property but not well reflected on the web. Our research team uncovered untapped potential in women and solo travelers and elevated ideas like the importance of breakfast and hostel experiences in the user journey.

The new Clink UX is focused on their current and aspired audience and engages them with the experiences they associate with exceptional hostel experiences to increase engagement and conversion.

The Home of
Rock n’ Roll Royalty

Sunset Marquis has epitomized the Hollywood Rock Hotel since 1963, the who’s who in their natural environment. It was a reasonable price point and a world-class bar where rock stars loved to play.
