April 30, 2005 Director of Marketing Hotel Altis Lisbon Portugal Dear Sir: I recently had the opportunity to stay in your beautiful hotel, which I enjoyed very much. During my visit to the health club, I picked up one of your advertisements. Upon reading it, I was astonished to realize that the English translation had many errors; not only were there words misspelled and grammatical errors but obviously, the Portuguese text was ?literally? translated by a person who is not familiar with the English language. Also, the back page of the pamphlet only displayed Portuguese verbage with no translation into English. I feel that a property of your standing must represent itself first class throughout and therefore suggest to you that you engage me to review and/or edit all of your hotel documentation which is available to your guests, either in the rooms, meeting rooms, restaurants or health club facilities. My permanent residence is in Canada but I presently spend my time between Canada and southern Europe. I have worked in the Canadian hospitality industry for over twenty years, part of this time as Director of Catering at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver (5 star hotel). Because of this, I am intricately familiar with hotel operations, know how competitive this industry is and how important it is to make an all around excellent impression. I look forward to your early reply and remain Yours very truly. R. Morell I can be reached via email:
