Hotel Manager Eindhoven

Panorama Hotel Holland

Via Umberto


February 10th 2008

Dear Mr. Lando,

I am writing in relation to the marketing conference that my company held at your hotel from 5th to 8th of February this year.

When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist told us there were only eight rooms available. There were nine people from Electronics RDC attending the conference and so two of my colleagues had to share one room. This was very inconvenient.

Also, some of my colleagues complained that the hotel was too noisy for them at night. There was a lot of noise and this stopped them from sleeping. At the conference they felt tired and sleepy. Other colleagues said there was a strong smell of smoke in their rooms which was not very nice. Some of the rooms were too cold and my colleagues were not able to turn the heating up. They had to ask for extra blankets to keep warm.

The conference centre was also too far away from the hotel. In the other Panorama hotels we have used, the conference facilities were in the hotel. In yours we had to get a bus down the coast to the conference centre and this wasted a lot of time.

When we checked out of the hotel we noticed that the price on

display for the premium class rooms was cheaper than the price

we paid when we booked online. This is unacceptable. Electronics ;

RDC use Panorama hotels regularly. We are Gold Class members

and expect better service than this. i

I expect a reply from you within ten days. Yours sincerely, Mr Van der Vaart.

9. Speaking.

Talk about three facilities or services which your ideal hotel could offer to its customers in a few sentences.
