Subject: Booking 2 nights next week

Dear Ascot Hotel,

I would like to reserve an accessible single room for two nights with breakfast on the 22 and 23 of April. Could I have a quiet room with a view if possible, please?

I will arrive at about 10 p.m. and I have an early meeting the next morning, so please could you leave an iron and ironing board in the room?

I have a promotional code (MH2219). Please can you confirm that it is £80 per night with breakfast included?

Please could you confirm the booking? Let me know if you need any further information.

Many thanks.

With kind regards,

David Mathews

When I book a hotel room, the first thing I ask whether there is a double room on my date and how much it cost. Then I am interested in other things like breakfast, hairdryer, wi-fi, view from the window, etc.

When i book a hotel room I will ask for wifi, price, big mirror and the time for checkin, checkout. Wifi ist the most important thing in my opinion, because i can not work without internet. Wifi must robust and fast enough to play youtube (for example). The hotels i have vistied before do not have big mirror, i do not know why, it is needed to check your outfit before going out.

If I have to book a hotel room for any trip. The first thing I ask would be per night charges with including breakfast or without including breakfast. Then I would want to know about the services if they have a wifi facility or not. Do they have a TV in the room or not. How much far the hotel is from the main city and I definitely do some research by myself over the internet.

After I check about testimonials, private bathrooms internet available and location, I ask them about price and availability.

Actually, before I book a hotel, I'll check the testimonials about it, and compare it with others hotel if they are close together. Certainly I would like to choose the better one of them. The most important thing is the convort and service of the hotel. Usually, I would like to prefer the single room with extra bed, no smoke and whether breakfast is served in buffet or not. If possible, I want to choose a room with a beautiful view.
