The attached Excel file contains a list of all the current Distribute Normalised Hotel ID's for use in the V2 API.
The 'HotelID' column contains the normalised Hotel ID for use in the 'DestinationHotel' parameter of the API. We also include the normalised hotel name, details of which location in our geotree the hotel is located, and a list of brand codes which are supported by this hotel. There is a second tab 'Location Tree' which includes our complete geotree for your reference.
Please note that this list is constantly evolving, as we have an ongoing automated process which 'maps' hotels together. You may see that there is some 'duplication' in the list, where the same hotel is included under different Hotel ID's. This is typically because the information provided by our data suppliers is very 'messy' and it is often an extremely complex process to identify duplicates between hotels.
Our ongoing process merges these duplicate hotels together into one Hotel ID. This 'remapping' process means that some of the Hotel ID's in the current list will become invalid over time, however we will always redirect any requests for a remapped Hotel ID to the new ID without you needing to make any changes to your implementation. In order for you to keep your own mappings to our Hotel ID's as clean as possible, we will periodically publish a list of these 'remapped' Hotel ID's on this forum to ensure that you can update/refresh your own mappings. See our 'Hotel Remapping Information' article for more details.
