ordering and setting your room codes the good way
codes leveling, groupbys.
when it comes to set how many levels and how to organize your room codes, based on the matching you do, your groupby will determine your leveling.
To cover most of the criteria spectrum, we consider having 8 is the right start.
level 1: room capacity - > 2 bedrooms quadruple / 2BQA
level 2: room type - > suite / CRST
level 2: room class - > deluxe junior corner / DXJR
level 3: room view balcony - > sea view terrace / S1TR
level 3: room extra amen - > sofa bed jacuzzi /SOJZ
level 5: room access floor level - > accessible ground floor / ACGR
level 6: room single smoking - > single use no smoking / SUNS
level 7: room beds pax - > 1 king 1 pax / 1K1P

room id example: 2BQA - DXJR - CRST - S1TR - SOJZ - ACGR - SUNS - 1K1P

This id is the unique room mapping id that can be used for advanced tracability and booking certification.
Using this method allows reverse engineering over mapped criterias.
