Book Hotel Reservation


The Book Hotel Reservation API is used to reserve one or more hotel rooms and create a hotel segment in a passenger name record, (PNR). This API allows client applications to sell a hotel reservation from a hotel description. A PNR containing at least a name and an address must be in the current session/Sabre work area. To reserve a room from a hotel description, the client application must obtain the pertinent line number from the Hotel Property Description API response message
