I'm curious why you are using an entire table cell for a hidden field,
but that's another question. ;-)

The following line is not inside a PHP code block:
<input type="hidden" name="booktime" value="$time">

What that means is that "$time" is not evaluated and replaced before
the form is sent to the browser. If you look at the source code of
your form page, you'll see it's just the string "$time". Try it this
way:

<input type="hidden" name="booktime" value="<?=$time;?>">
