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

  2. Say clearly the dates you want, the room type and whether you want breakfast or not.
  3. Don't forget to mention any additional information or special requests.
  4. Ask them to confirm your booking. Give them your phone number if you prefer to be contacted that way.

When I book a hotel room, I ask if it have restaurant and pool. Sometimes, I ask for room with air conditioning, but it depends on city where I travel.

I would like to ask for bathtub when booking a room. Taking a hot bath after a long trip or a business travel can release the stress very well. Furthermore, floor to ceiling window with a good view is very important for me. A large window can brighten the whole room, which makes people more energetic and active, and it is very pleasant that the beautiful scenes comes into view when you look out from the window.
