  <p>This ontology represents an initial recommendation for extending schema.org to support lodging businesses.  It represents work Thematix has successfully used to improve search for several hotel chain franchise operations, but is subject to change based on evolving requirements and feedback from operational deployments. For background, you may wish to read our [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/OpenLetterToHoteliers_1.1.pdf Open Letter] to hoteliers concerning these extensions.</p>
 
 
<p>A version of this summary resides at [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging Thematix's Site].</p>
 
 
  <p>The new, proposed <strong>Types</strong> are as follows</p>
 
  <ul>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/Amenity.html Amenity]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/BusinessService.html BusinessService]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/Feature.html Feature]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/GuestRoomAmenity.html GuestRoomAmenity]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/LodgingBusinessAmenity.html LodgingBusinessAmenity]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/LodgingBusinessService.html LodgingBusinessService]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/RentalOffer.html RentalOffer]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/RentalRate.html RentalRate]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/Room.html Room]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/RoomType.html RoomType]</li>
 
    <li>[http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/Service.html Service]</li>
 
  </ul>
 
 
 
  <p> As part of the extension process, we have introduced a number of new properties.  Some of these are defined in the above type definitions; others are proposed new properties whose domain is existing types.  These new <strong>properties</strong> are as follows:</p>
 
  <ul>
 
  <li><strong>hasAmenity</strong>. This property's domain is [http://schema.org/LocalBusiness LocalBusiness] or [http://schema.org/Product Product]. Its range is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/Amenity.html Amenity]. "hasAmenity" is a property relating a product or business to a feature considered an amenity. The choice of "product" as a domain of amenity is based on its dictionary definition as "being or having a quality of pleasantness or desirability. It's usual application is as applied to a place or a piece of property".</li>
 
  <li><strong>hasLodgingProvider</strong>. This property's domain is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/Room.html Room]. Its range is [http://schema.org/LodgingBusiness LodgingBusiness]. It identifies the specific lodging business, such as a specific local hotel providing the lodging, such as Hyatt Regency Cambridge or Anaheim Hilton.</li>
 
  <li><strong>hasRentalDuration</strong>. This property's domain is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/RentalRate.html RentalRate]. Its range is [http://schema.org/Duration Duration]. It describes the duration of the rental. </li>
 
  <li><strong>hasRentalRate</strong>. This property's domain is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/RentalOffer.html RentalOffer]. Its range is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/RentalRate.html RentalRate].  It links the rental offer to a rate specific to the date and duration of interest.</li>
 
  <li><strong>hasRentalRateFeature</strong>.  This property's domain is [http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/RentalRate.html RentalRate]. It is a string. It serves to describe  a feature, amenity or service associated specifically with the combination of the offer and rate. For example, to limit the availability of the rate to certain guests (retirees, service personnel, etc.)</li>
 
  <li><strong>hasRoomType</strong>.  This property's domain is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/Room.html Room]. Its range is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/RoomType.html RoomType]. It describes the type of room in a lodging business or other building, such as Twin, King, Double, Suite, Meeting Room, Ballroom, Fitness Center, Health Club, Spa, etc.</li>
 
  <li><strong>offersService</strong>. This property's domain is [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/Organization.html Organization]. Its range is [http://thematix.com/travel/lodging/Service.html Service]. &quot;offersService&quot; is a property relating an organization to a service offered.</li>
 
  </ul>
 
 
 
  <p>We are also making available an [http://thematix.com/ontologies/travel/lodging/lodging.owl OWL file] that represents the above extensions in the web ontology language. Note that certain accommodations had to be made to accurately reflect the intent of Schema.org; for example, string and decimal are explicitly declared as types in order to keep the ontology consistent. Also, the file imports [http://schema.rdfs.org/all http://schema.rdfs.org/all] and the SKOS core at [http://w3c.org/2004/02/skos/core http://w3c.org/2004/02/skos/core].</p>
 
 
<p> Various elements of these extensions have been published at both large and small hoteliers' sites, including for example [http://www.daysinn.com/hotels/florida/miami/days-inn-miami-airport-north/hotel-overview?partner_id=&hotel_id=05267&group_code=&campaign_code=&propId=DI05267&brand_id=DI&checkout_date=04%2F28%2F2013&modify=false&useWRPoints=false&children=0&corporate_id=&ratePlan=BAR&teens=0&affiliate_id=&altPropId=05267&brand_code=BH%2CDI%2CRA%2CBU%2CHJ%2CKG%2CMT%2CSE%2CTL%2CWG%2CWY%2CPX%2CWT%2CWP%2CPN&iata=&rate_code=&adults=1&checkin_date=04%2F27%2F2013&rooms=1&ref_id=http%3A//www.super8.com&srcBrand=SE&srcDestination=miami Wyndham-Days Inn Hotels], Hilton Hotels (see [http://www.hiltonanaheimhotel.com/anaheim-resorts.aspx here] for the Anaheim Hilton and [http://thematix.com/HiltonVB/Hilton-Amenities-And-Services.html here] here for Virginia Beach) and the [http://www.regencyhotelmiami.com/guestrooms-and-suites.php Miami Regency Hotel].
