Recommendation letters written for housekeepers lend support to individuals applying for a housekeeping position at a hotel or an agency. A good recommendation letter acts as a seal of approval from a previous employer to a prospective one. Since chances of employment can multiply manifold when a recommendation letter is received by a prospective employer, it is important to write a good one.
Before you attempt to write a recommendation letter for a housekeeper who has kept your house or hotel squeaky clean, jot down all the advantages you had when they worked for you. Once you have these in front of you, you will be able to write a glowing recommendation letter. Remember that it is your recommendation letter that may eventually be the deciding factor in hiring an individual, so it is up to you to make sure that it is written properly and factually.
Your recommendation should be targeted – find out its purpose – is it a new job or a background check? If possible, obtain a copy of the job description given in the advertisement that the person is replying to. By doing this, you can modify your recommendation to the requirements of the prospective employer.
Use the following samples of recommendation letters for a housekeeper position to help you write your own.

To Whom It May Concern
I am writing in genuine support of Hannah Becken who is applying for a housekeeping position at your hotel. Hanna has worked as a housekeeper for Hilton Hotel for five years and has distinguished herself owing to her enthusiasm and positive approach towards work.
Hannah was initially hired as a part time housekeeping assistant and quickly made her way up to working on a full time position. Hilton Hotel recently invested in a ‘Clean One, Clean All’ scheme which focuses on providing the highest of housekeeping services in a hotel environment, which Hannah was responsible for leading and making successful. But this accomplishment only scratches the surface of her ability and character. She is by far the most responsible employee Hilton Hotel has had the fortune to hire as she is one of those rare people who work hard and diligently, with a constant smile on her face.
I am aware personally that Hannah performs well in challenging situations. A guest who held a party in one of the party rooms at the hotel earlier this year, managed to completely trash the room before he left. We were all in a quandary about how to handle the situation as there was another party due in the same room in less than two hours, but Hannah managed to employ her leadership skills and have the room cleaned and prepared before the next guests arrived!
Hannah’s high caliber of character and keen housekeeping skills set her apart from others in the housekeeping arena. I highly recommend her for a similar position and wish her the best of luck in all future endeavors. I can be reached at (333) 333-3333 for any further information needed.
