SOAP vs REST

Are there any guidelines or best practices to determine which protocol to use to implement my webservice?

The protocol will probably be the same in both cases (HTTP). Using SOAP is indicated if you need or want to use any of the related standards that don't work with REST, e.g. WSDL or WS-Security.
