For over two decades, Century Hotel in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines has been providing incomparable guest service to business and leisure travelers. The family-owned hotel recently upgraded their rooms and facilities to modern standards. Alongside the hotel renovation, my client realized the need to re-design the hotel website to have a current and trendy appeal, one that "does not look like other hotel WordPress templates."


For the design, I decided to use fullscreen slideshows in the page background and a layout that does not follow the usual 2- or 3-column content templates favored by hundreds of commercial themes. I used the Canvas framework from WooThemes as foundation and heavily modified the functions to adapt to my design.

In addition, I integrated the following components into the site:

  • Salesforce contact form for lead generation
  • Chat box from
  • Tripadvisor ratings form
  • Created Mailchimp and Salesforce email templates
