A local hotel offers lodging services. You can pick a name for the hotel(Home Sweet Home Hotel). Your team will develop a prototype reservation system to record client bookings for reservations. Your application will record the date and time for the reservation, the number of guests per room. The reservations will be stored in a database or flat file. There are 2 levels of rooms: suites or regular rooms. Suite rooms can house 4 people; regular rooms can house 2 people.
A person reserving a suite guest room may also request optional business services such as high speed internet, conference facilities, fax services and copy machine services. A person reserving a regular guest room may also request optional business services such as high speed internet, fax services and copy machine services, but not a conference room. If a conference room is requested, additional amenities such as coffee service, catered lunch are available at extra cost per person. Your application must also record and store requested business services. Your application will calculate and display the estimated bill for all services requested by a guest; they will be included in that guests room bill.
