Creating a Hotel Campaign

The first step in implementing Hotel Ads is creating a Hotel campaign. In creating a Hotel campaign, you set its budget, bidding strategy, and Hotel Ads Center account ID.

Here are the steps in setting up a Hotel campaign:

  1. Setting the campaign's advertising_channel_type to HOTEL.
  2. Creating a HotelSettingInfo, setting its hotel_center_id, and then adding it to the campaign.
  3. Creating a PercentCpc bidding strategy for the campaign. For details on bidding strategies and setting bids, see Bidding Overview.

These steps are demonstrated in the following code.

Java

private void runExample(
    GoogleAdsClient googleAdsClient,
    long customerId,
    long hotelCenterAccountId,
    long cpcBidCeilingMicroAmount) {

  // Creates a budget to be used by the campaign that will be created below.
  String budgetResourceName = addCampaignBudget(googleAdsClient, customerId);

  // Creates a hotel campaign.
  String campaignResourceName =
      addHotelCampaign(
          googleAdsClient,
          customerId,
          budgetResourceName,
          hotelCenterAccountId,
          cpcBidCeilingMicroAmount);

  // Creates a hotel ad group.
  String adGroupResourceName = addHotelAdGroup(googleAdsClient, customerId, campaignResourceName);

  // Creates a hotel ad group ad.
  addHotelAdGroupAd(googleAdsClient, customerId, adGroupResourceName);
}

C#

public void Run(GoogleAdsClient client, long customerId, long hotelCenterAccountId,
    long cpcBidCeilingMicroAmount)
{
    try
    {
        // Create a budget to be used by the campaign that will be created below.
        string budgetResourceName = AddCampaignBudget(client, customerId);

        // Create a hotel campaign.
        string campaignResourceName = AddHotelCampaign(client, customerId,
            budgetResourceName, hotelCenterAccountId, cpcBidCeilingMicroAmount);

        // Create a hotel ad group.
        string adGroupResourceName = AddHotelAdGroup(client, customerId,
            campaignResourceName);

        // Create a hotel ad group ad.
        AddHotelAdGroupAd(client, customerId, adGroupResourceName);
    }
    catch (GoogleAdsException e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Failure:");
        Console.WriteLine($"Message: {e.Message}");
        Console.WriteLine($"Failure: {e.Failure}");
        Console.WriteLine($"Request ID: {e.RequestId}");
        throw;
    }
}

PHP

    GoogleAdsClient $googleAdsClient,
    int $customerId,
    string $budgetResourceName,

    int $cpcBidCeilingMicroAmount

        ]),

    // Creates a campaign operation.
    $campaignOperation = new CampaignOperation();
    $campaignOperation->setCreate($campaign);

    // Issues a mutate request to add campaigns.
