BookNow Rates - why do Private Rooms show prices per Person instead of per Room?


Background:


On the Room Selection screen, the BookNow rates will be displayed at the rate of "Person Per Day" even for Private Rooms.  


If a customer selects a Private Room, BookNow will display the original rate to the customer by person, and will force them to choose the correct occupancy in the "Persons" drop-down list.


Once they select the correct Occupancy, the "Person Per Day" rate will be multiplied by the total occupancy of the room and therefore the full price of the room will be displayed as the "Day Price" on the Booking Overview page.


Example:


Below you will see that "Tom's Suite" is a 2-person Private room (#1).  The "Person per day" rate is shown as GBP 50.00 (#2).


Since the room's occupancy is set at "2 people" (#3), the final price shown on the Booking Overview page will be calculated as 50 X 2 = 100.00 (#4).




Additional Information:


We have received numerous requests to display the full rate of the room (Day Price) to the customer at the very beginning on the Room Selection screen.  We plan to implement that change on the next version of BookNow.  For now, BookNow is limited to displaying the "Person Per Day" rate as demonstrated above.
