In certain cases, such as when you are already providing a list of hotels on your own website, you may want to provide a list of the recommended hotels for an attendee when they reach the hotel selection portion of their booking process.
When this feature is used, a new sort type labelled Recommended will be visible in the hotel sorting dropdown box (which will be selected by default). Any hotels that are currently available and part of the list provided will be displayed in the order they were provided and highlighted to denote that they are recommended.
In order to use the Recommended Hotel feature, simply provide another parameter to your booking URL called hotelIds which will contain a list of hotel IDs (found via the Master Control Panel or the Shopping List View API call) separated by commas. The order here is important as the first hotel represented by the first ID in the list will be displayed first.
Your URL may look something like the following:
Where "123,456" are the Hotel IDs of two different hotels (123 and 456) as an example.
If you are using an attendee integration
and are generating links for your guests using the Get Event Link
or Get Group Code Link
methods, then you may simply add "&hotelIds=123,456
" to the end of your URL to include the Recommended Hotels.
