Всеки гост ще се почувства поласкан, когато намери в стаята си своя Welcome letter (писмо за добре дошъл). Този жест на внимание има за цел да накара госта да се почувства специален и желан. По този начин ние показваме, че държим на него и ценим това, че е избрал именно нашия хотел.
Най-добрият вариант е, когато писмото е написано на ръка, адресирано с лично послание към госта и подписано от генералния мениджър. Този подход е повече от желателен при визита на VIP гост. Ако хотелът не е особено голям, това би могло да бъде възприето и за всички гости. Генералният мениджър би могъл да делегира някому самото писане на писмата, след което да ги подпише. Разбира се управителят доста често е възпрепятстван с други задължения и ангажименти и обикновено фронт офис мениджъра има грижата да подготви и организира доставянето на писмата по стаите.
Разбираемо в по-големите хотели може да се прибягва до ползването на образци, които да се разпечатят, след което се попълва името на госта и се подписват от генералния мениджър или неговия заместник.
Но какво трябва да включва едно такова писмо? Вариантите са толкова, колкото сигурно са хотелите по света. Все пак ако се позовем на практиката от световните хотелски вериги, които безспорно са пример за подражание можем да определим няколко основни правила.
Писмото трябва да включва следните задължителни компоненти:1. Лично обръщение - използваме името на госта.
2. Приветствие за добре дошъл.
3. Изказване удволетвореност от визитата на госта.
4. Уверение в това, че персоналът на хотела ще даде най-доброто от себе си.
5. Пожелание за приятен престой.
От тук нататък е въпрос на изказ и стил, как да бъде написано самото писмо. Не е рядка практика в тези писма да бъде добавяна информация за хотела, неговите ресторанти, фитнес център, казино, хотелска закуска и така нататък. Писмото може да предостави на неговия приносител отстъпки и промоционални оферти в рамките на хотела. Вариантите наистина са много и зависят и до голяма степен от човека, който пише писмото, типа хотел, националността на госта и така нататък.
