In need of room reservation API's

A client needs to add room reservations to his website, but I have not used these before.

I am a C# developer and have written and used numerous SOAP and WCF API's. But I have questions about these:

1) Are any free to use?
2) Will my client earn some decent commissions on sales? What kind of money for a $100 reservation?
3) Are the SOAP?n What technologies are they typically?
4) Which are the good ones and which are the bad ones?

My client is not a hotel owner. He has a website.

I am talking about the API for Orbitz,, etc.

This should have nothing to do with the chain.

I see the Kayak no longer offers an API. Hopefully others do.

Please let me know...
