    Integration of Hotel Reservation Engine with Ruby on Rails application

    I am looking to build a Ruby on Rails website for a hotel and am trying to figure out what the best approach to address the integration of a booking engine might be.

    Does anyone have had a good experience with a 3rd party booking engine which would integrate relatively well with a Ruby On Rails app ( the hotel is based in Ireland, if that is of any relevance)?

    Or is there any gem which could maybe lay the foundations for a reservation engine(I have mainly seen event/calendars gems which didn't seem to be maintained anymore, and none of the booking-related gem I saw seemed to fit the bill)?

    Is it something I should consider building completely from scratch?

    Thanks a lot for any suggestion!

    Hi LoicS,
    Is it something I should consider building completely from scratch?
    Yes, I'd start with the most important tasks of the app and work back from there. e.g. listing rooms and allowing for bookings.
    gems are usually small and specific, you'll use lots for different tasks, not one big system that you drop in.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I guess that will be the way to go!
