Description.  Display the best available rate per room type in the rate query display.

Property Determination. The feature displays best available rates by room type for a specific date range. Each property can determine the (up to 25) rate codes that should be taken into consideration when calculating the best available rate (BAR) for a reservation. To find the BAR, Opera will search through the 25 chosen rate codes and determine the 4 best available rates for each room type. The best available rate is determined by the lowest amount that will be charged the guest. The determination is made strictly on rate amount. This means the first choice for room type KB might be $100.00 and the second choice for KB might be $105.00, but the $105.00 includes breakfast.
