How to Write a Report About Hotels

by Emilia Lamberto, Demand Media

    When people choose a hotel, they usually look for information on it beforehand. They want reviews, reports, ratings and discussion on the hotel. Writing a report not only gives you the opportunity to stay at a hotel, it informs others to help them decide whether to stay there. Writing a hotel report takes time and a detail-orientated person.

    Step 1

    Become familiar with the hotel you are reporting on. Visit the hotel and jot down notes on parking, cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, how problems were resolved, overall appearance, the check-in process, and any other relevant information.

    Step 2

    Take notes on the facilities that are near the hotel. This includes entertainment, landmarks, restaurants and attractions. These are important to tourists and people staying in the area.

    Step 3

    Talk to the employees of the hotel. Ask them if they enjoy working there, if the pay is sufficient for the work put in, how they feel about the management, and if they think the hotel could be improved. How the employees feel is very important to the hotel report and the readers of the report.

    Step 4

    Start by giving a little background information on the hotel you're reporting on. You may be able to get some information via the Internet or through the staff. Find out who owns the line of hotels, when the hotels were started, and any other history on the place.

    Step 5

    Add information regarding the hotel in it's current state, including details from your visit. Describe the inside of the hotel, what amenities it offers (pools, sauna, jacuzzi, arcade, game rooms), and nearby attractions. Rate the staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, ease of check-in and check-out, and more.

    Step 6

    Put a special section in the report for the comments of the hotel staff. Do not include names in order to protect the identity of the employees.

    Step 7

    Conclude the report with an overall rating and recommendation of the hotel. Would you recommend this hotel to family and friends? Is there anything that the hotel could do to improve? The end of the report should summarize the details on the hotel and let the reader know whether or not they should visit there.
