Most of the easy to remember domain names have been taken up by end users and particularly by cybersquatters for the top level domain ".com".  You may want to consider other TLD names.

realworldhotels.com  is available.

www.bookthebestdamnhotel.com

or

www.btbdh.com 

for short...and register both so that the long name points to the short name or vice versa.

Like www.bofa.com points to the main website.

With the limitation of domain name set at 4 to 6 characters you are either going to have to use an acronym or some variation of "hotel" reference with one letter or number prefix for it to reflect the intention of the site.

In my opinion acronyms are a mistake.  They are too easy for people to get muddled up and end up on another unrelated (marketing or squatter?) site.  URL autocomplete could go against you in this respect.  I believe that it makes more sense to have a site with a logical name like "hotelbooker" or "bookhotels" (not sure if either are taken) or similar, because a logical name is no more difficult to remember than an acronym like "byhwe" for "Book Your Hotel With Ease".

Using a minor variation of a common word that very accurately reflects the limited scope of the site, i.e. booking hotels, is going to present you with a real problem given the 4 to 6 character limitation you have set yourself.

I think longer (readable) is better choice (agree with BillDL) as (nearly) no one cares to type it in, they more likely want to select (<click>) an icon or item on some readable/legible pick list. Where fixation is that specific consider alternative to a 'www.*.com' (as above). But as WhiteHouse is 'WH' chances of grief from typo increase disproportionately.

that said, here, have at it:

http://www.wwhres.com/ is available (six letter limit)

- aka World Wide Hotel Reservations
