The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the TTAB`s judgment in the HOTELS.COM case.  The TTAB found the term to be generic for "providing information for others about temporary lodging; travel agency services, namely, making reservations and bookings for temporary lodging for others by means of telephone and the global computer network.”  http://www.cafc.uscourts.gov/opinions/08-1429.pdf
