I am looking for a good affiliate for hotel bookings, offering API and XML integration. But also looking for a good commission. What is the general commission you receive with hotel affiliates?

Generally I've seen 50% of their commission, with some extra bonus for high performers.

How much does that usually work out of the total commission from the booking?

It all depends on the commission they're getting from the hotel. It's usually 10%, but can be more or less. So you can ballpark your commission at 5% of the room price (before taxes/fees).
