Stockbridge: Red Lion taps web re-developer
The Red Lion Inn has chosen Housatonic Creative of Great Barrington to extensively redevelop its website, said Stephanie Gravalese-Wood, the inn's marketing and communications manager. The Red Lion hopes to have its new website up and running by Memorial Day.
Housatonic Creative was chosen for the project over several other local and regional entities because the marketing and web design firm seemed to understand the Red Lion's needs the best, according to Gravalese-Wood. The South County firm was founded by Mark Baer and Kip Beacco in 2007.
When the project is completed, Gravalese-Wood said the Red Lion's new website will be more user friendly and visually appealing, and will make it easier for anyone who is interested in the lodging establishment to find what they're looking for.
