Returning already booked rooms to client (for viewing).

Do I need to return "booked" rooms to back to client, if they match the criteria, together with all available rooms; for user's viewing? What would be valid reasons for yes and no?
Please share your opinion!
Thank you!

In my spec it isn't really addressed. It says that the user should be able to return a listing of all rooms. And that's it. However, my searching mechanism was flexible enough that it was no big deal to return already booked rooms, so I presented a little checkbox for the user to check, and tada. (Just to be safe).

Nathaniel's decision sounds reasonable. If you think of the fact that CSR's job is to register bookings, giving them a way to quicly display bookable rooms only is a big plus ! (The db could have thousands of legacy records with only a few of them in the "bookable" state).
Best,
Phil.

Thanks, Philippe and Nathaniel!
I am glad I asked because I could not decide on the way to do it.
I will allow operators to either get all records or request only available.
Thank you both for your quick replies.
