Since Hotel Booking version 3.7.2, you can make the number of adults and children change dynamically based on the guest’s search parameters and keep the tiered pricing set via Rates.

The new plugin version allows you to bring more flexibility to this restriction by designating three separate capacity limits: for adults, children, and the total “capacity”.
