I want to write a hotel reservation website

I am an ASP.NET MVC3 C3 developer with a string desire to exercise my JavaScript. jQuery, HTML and CSS. So I am thinking about just creating a website and want it to also earn me a few dollars.

I hear there are API's I can use that would provide me with hotel rooms and their availability. Can anyone suggest a few? I am not ready to pass any kind of technical threshold so am not sure if I would pass a formal application process. I would need something like Yahoo, if they offer such a thing, where they figure the more website showing thier rooms, the more money they'd make.

Please suggest a few that might be a good starting point.

Also, is ASP.NET the right platform for me? I do know how to use it and hear it's possibly the most productive platform going.

Please let me know about that too.

Thanks!

ASP.Net is good, buit it's being opened up more with the HTML5 and CSS3 stuff coming out.
Are you trying to write something along the lines of booking.com, where they trawl published unreserved hotel rooms, or an actual booking management system for a hotel?

You can chose from lot of options. According to your region and preference there are companies available for hotel details.
And regarding ASP.NET MVC 3 as a platform for you site, it would be fine for your use. Its scalable and performance centric compared to ASP.NET WebForms.

I'd like to write a website that enables me to give users unique search capabilities which would bring them back at a greater frequency than other hotel room reservation sites. This would have nothing to do with a particular hotel or chain. I'd like to offer lots of possibities to users.

I have not read any fine print of those links, but wonder how high the threshold is before they allow you to access their API's? I would need access for test purposes, and once my site's done, I could make a more formal request to use thier API since I'd have something to show them.

Any idea do they charge money for use of their API's? Will they run QA tests on my site before tey give me permission?

Curious...

Charges and terms/conditions differ with provider. First list down providers, contact them for more details. And then finalize the best one.
