Spanish term or phrase:reservas alojadas
Again, this is from the partnership agreement drawn up between an online hotel bookings company and a hotel. The term appears as follows:
En caso de localizar ***reservas alojadas***, a través de revisiones internas, en las que no se haya pagado la comisión correspondiente, XYZ facturará al hotel la comisión correspondiente de esa reserva cuando se aperciba de dicho extremo.
I have changed the sentence structure around, to produce:
If, through internal reviews, it is found that no commission has been paid on bookings for stays which have been *** by guests, XYZ will invoice the hotel the commission applicable for those bookings.
I toyed with the idea of "enjoyed by guests", but that could be construed as "enjoyable stays" rather than just stays that guests have used. Any other ideas for a verb that I could use here? Or a completely different approach?
Hi Comunican and thanks for your suggestion. My reading of it was that "alojadas" referred to bookings that had been made and then actually used by the guests, i.e. not cancelled or no-shows. Another clause in the contract talks about no-shows and cancellations, where the hotel pays commission on the penalty charge, not the full amount payable for the reservation. So I think here it is talking about stays that guests have actually turned up for.

reservations that have been taken up
Explanation: "alojadas" might mean that these are ones where the guests have stayed at the hotel, rather than a booking that was cancelled or no-show.
