Have you considered indexing the reviews along with the hotels right
in the hotel index? That way you would fetch the reviews right along with
the hotels...

Really, this is another way of saying "flatten your data" <G>...

Your idea of holding all the hotel reviews in memory is also viable,
depending upon
how many there are. you'd pay some startup costs, but that's what caching is
all
about.

Given your current index structure, have you tried collecting the hotel IDs,
and
submitting a query to your review index that just ORs together all the IDs
and
then parsing that rather than calling your review index for one hotel ID at
a time?
