The process of finding the finest hotel in central location is time consuming, information overload and overwhelming and in some cases poses a security risk to the client. Over time with competition in the market among travel agents and hotels, the process of hotel search and booking has improved with the advances in technology. Various web sites allow a user to select a destination from a pull-down list along with several categories to suit one’s preference.. Some of the more advanced web sites allow for a search of the destination via a map for example and Recently good amount of work been carried in the use of Intelligent agents towards hotel search on J2ME based mobile handset which still has some weakness. The proposed system so developed uses smart software agents that overcomes the weakness in the previous system by collaborating among themselves and search Google map based on criteria selected by the user and return results to the client that is precise and best suit the user requirements. In addition, the agent possesses learning capability of searching the hotels too which is based on past search experience. The booking of hotel involving cryptography has not been incorporated in this research paper and been published elsewhere. This will be facilitated on Android 2.2-enabled mobile phone using JADE-LEAP Agent development kit.
