Dear Mr. Banning:
I am writing to express a keen interest in the advertised position of Hotel Assistant Manager at Hyatt. My Bachelors degree in Hotel Management and 6 years’ customer service experience with an emphasis in the hospitality industry makes me a perfect candidate for this position. As an Assistant Manager, I foresee bringing a significant rise in the revenue and client base of Hyatt.
As required, I have a proven ability to assist the Hotel Manager to ensure consistent and high-quality guest service standards are maintained throughout the Hotel. During my work as a Hotel Assistant Manager at Dream Suites, I developed the knowledge of the ins and outs of the hotel business. With absolute focus on ensuring recurring business, I made the most of many techniques that resulted in customer loyalty and $40000 increase in revenue in a single month;. I am a people oriented person and enjoy interacting with guests immensely which has been the reason of my success in my previous positions. Moreover, I can easily predetermine guests’ needs and arrange for the right combination of events in order to meet those needs.
As my background indicates, I have the right capabilities which will enable me to exceed your expectations. I would like to meet you in person so that I can demonstrate how my expertise can be of value to Hyatt. Please feel free to contact me any time on my cell phone at (000) 258-1100.
