Hotel Reservations


This plugin adds a widget that allows you to easily include the hotel reservation system into your WordPress hotel site. You can add as many plugins as needed. It works well together with Widget Logic plugin and WPML to create different translations. The plugin automatically includes the proper jQuery scripts from the maxmind servers and is easy to configure.

  • You need a account for this to work.


  1. Enter your hotel ID and the other requested data in the Maxmind Settings page which you will find under the Settings tab on your dashboard.
  2. Add the widget to one of your sidebars, click Save. Then you can enter a widget title and language. If you install the Widget Logic plugin you can
    also specify the language for which the specific widget should be shown.
