Critique an existing web site

Write a one-page (250-500 words) critique of a website that you choose that is is related to travel. I.e., the website might be travel planner, recommendation engine for hotels, budget guide, etc. Use Norman's guidelines and Shneiderman's eight golden rules to structure your comments, but go beyond them if you like.

Be sure to describe positive aspects, and also make suggestions for revisions. Please work carefully to produce a thoughtful well-organized, well-written page that makes constructive suggestions about low-level items (spelling, fonts, colors, layouts, etc.), middle-level aspects (consistency, error handling, writing style, menu design, etc.), and high-level concepts (information architecture, navigation, audience appeal, privacy protection, credibility, etc.)
