Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the hotel). During my online research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a (specify position), and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
My seventeen year background in hotel management includes diversified positions working in full service motels with national locations and managing large five-star hotels.
The scope of my general management experience includes food & beverage / catering operations for upscale restaurants, bars, and fine dining rooms with oversight for event coordination and conference services for a very exclusive member’s only club and conventions center.
In my current position as General Manager with ABC Hotel, I effectively handle a myriad of day-to-day functions for the hotel and an exclusive membership club. I am particularly proud of my accomplishments, which includes oversight of a $4.1 million dollar renovation project. In this capacity, I supervised a workforce of 72 cross-functional employees through leadership of area managers across F&B, banquet sales, marketing, front desk, concierge, and reservations.
Working directly with each manager and executive board members, I formulated and instituted strategic business plans reflecting their short-and long-ranged visions for the hotel. Through implementation of necessary changes to operations, which included holding staff members accountable for their performance, an impressive savings of $638K was realized in under one year.
The details of the above achievement and numerous initiatives that I managed, with measureable results, are outlined in my attached resume. I am certain you will find my experience, combined with my hands-on managerial style and well-honed business acumen well suited to take your hotel’s operations to the next level with an emphasis on service level, reputation and profitability.
As there is more to convey, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your organization and how my qualifications would be a excellent match.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
