Hotel search tool

I am a PHP/MySQL Web Developer. A client of mine needs a tool, preferably soon (within 1 or 2 weeks), to help him search suitable hotels. I do not have the time at the moment, which is why I am looking for a good programmer to do the job for me. I will be managing the job and I will take care of the communication with the client. He travels a lot, and currently searches these three sites by hand:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

to find something suitable in a specific city for one or a few days or sometimes a longer period. One key thing is that he wants the bed in the hotel room to be of good quality, as he has trouble sleeping otherwise.

Instead of searching these sites by hand he wants Tool to search automatically. The Tool should allow the user to enter the following input on a web page and then the Tool should automatically search the above 3 sites. User input:

Period (start date and leaving date)

Maximum price in USD per day

Number of stars the hotel should have (for example, search only 3 star hotels, or only 4 star, etc.)

The city

Minimum average review rate given (for example 8.0 on scale of 1-10)

Then the Tool should come up with hotels which are available in the given period, and fulfill the above criteria, and it should only show hotels which have at least one review text (on any of the 3 hotel sites listed above) which says something about the quality of the bed.

The Tool should detect either the word bed or beds by searching the reviews for those 2 terms, whereby bed or beds is seen as a word if before and after the word is a space, comma, colon, semi-colon, or period or any similar character which might indicate the start or end of a word e.g: . , ; : ( ). And then the output should be given as follows in the order from highest average review rating to lowest. Example output:

Hotel Alexandria

Price per night: $75

Average review rating: 7.6

Reviews [url removed, login to view] containing bed or beds:

[...] had a very bad bed which ruined my sleep [...]

Reviews [url removed, login to view] containing bed or beds:

[...] the quality of the beds was quite good although [...]

[...] well on the nice bed and it was clean [...]

Reviews [url removed, login to view] containing bed or beds:

None containing bed or beds

Hotel Super Sleep

same format as previous hotel

etc. (continue in same format with rest of hotels which fullfill criteria)

Note that the relevant text reviews should show only the part of the review about bed or bed with the 4 words before and the 4 words after the word.

My preference is for the Tool to be programmed in PHP/MySQL without a PHP framework. As this is what I use myself. Code should be well (as simple as possible) structured and documented, so I can do updates and/or insert new features myself later if I want to. I imagine you would either use Curl or API (if the sites have that available) to search the 3 sites.

Please give me your ideas on this, saying briefly how you would make the Tool (i.e. which methods/tools/basic structure). And please tell me how much time you need to finish the Tool and for which price you will do the job.
