Dear Ms Graham,
I wish to apply for the position of Hotel Receptionist that was advertised last week on the Dayjob.com website.
I am at present working in a similar position for Adams Hotel, where for the last two years I have been responsible for being the first point of contact for all guests visiting the hotel. Apart from my superb customer service skills, I am also fully competent in front office operations, dealing with guests queries, checking guests in and out, operating the telephone switchboard and allocating guest bedrooms on the hotel booking system.
In addition to this, and as per your requirements, I am capable of greeting all guests in a professional, friendly and courteous manner, and have extensive knowledge of a hotel’s facilities and services.
My key skill lies in being able to ensure that guests feel welcomed and valued so that when they leave it’s a certainty that they will be back. Indeed I have been commended by my present employers for creating a professional, welcoming and reassuring atmosphere in the reception areas for all visitors and customers.
Right now I am at the stage in my career where I am ready to work for a prestigious and reputable company like yours. I would also like to add that I am familiar with your Hotels high reputation and am very eager to be associated with it.
I enclose a copy of my CV and hope you will look favourably upon my application.

Summer Hotel Job Letter Example
When applying for a seasonal hotel position, include in your cover letter any previous experience you have in the fields of hospitality and customer service. Also, because it's likely there will be times you will have to deal with guest concerns on your own, be sure to provide the hiring manager with two or three examples of your communication and problem-solving skills.
In addition, if you have non-hospitality experience (such as volunteer or team sports experience) that highlight your interpersonal skills, you should include those in your cover letter as well.
Below is a sample cover letter for a seasonal hotel position that you can use as a guide. Make the necessary adjustments to fit your experience and training as well as the position you're applying for.
Summer Hotel Cover Letter Example
Dear Mr. Fowler,
Please accept my application for the position of front desk assistant at the Moose Lake Lodge. I believe that my hospitality and front-of-store experience as a cashier at the Bob's Discount Dollar store make me an excellent candidate for the desk assistant position. While working at Bob's I had the opportunity to greet and interact with people of all ages on a daily basis.
I also have experience handling a variety of customer payment systems. My cashier experience made me comfortable handling cash, checks, and debit and credit cards. Additionally, as a math major, I can assure you that all my customer transactions will be accurate.
Additionally, as an administrative assistant in my school's registrar's office, I was constantly interacting with young students as well as older staff and faculty.
I found the work rewarding and was able to answer student questions and address their concerns with confidence and ease.
As a camp counselor, I gained valuable experience working with children and parents. I feel I have the ability to interact with people from different backgrounds and that my friendly and helpful demeanor would put Moose Lake Lodge guests at ease and feel welcome at your establishment.
I am confident that my hospitality skills and ability to handle a variety of payment types make me an ideal candidate for the front desk assistant position. I have enclosed my resume and will call within the next week to see if we can arrange a time to speak.
In the meantime, thank you for your time and consideration.

If you're unsure exactly what to put into your letter (and how to adapt the above letter to your background) you can review a hotel resume example. Also, you'll want to be prepared for the interview with a few letters of recommendation from people you've worked for including teachers and other adults that can vouch for your character.
