"I would like to thank the staff of the Gainesville Holiday Inn for their gracious hospitality. The reception staff were wonderful. I used the valet/shuttle services during a visit - the driver went far beyond what was expected to help me out when I requested his assistance. The new Holiday Inn website is fast and easy to use - compared to other hotel websites. The location of the hotel is perfect for my activities in Gainesville and the price for the stay is excellent for the value of service received."
I am writing you to commend you for hiring exceptional talent for the Holiday Inn on University Avenue. I checked in yesterday evening. I am staying an extra night because the rest, comfort and attention I have received because of your front and back of the house staff is superior. Ranging from housekeeping, maintenance to front desk, all of your staff have inquired about my comfort when I encounterered them. I know firsthand, that this economy takes its toll on room occupancy and staff turnover. I hope the distinguished dedication of your team sets you apart from other Gainesville hotels and ensures strong bookings. I know I will recommend to my friends; family, [etc..], that they stay at your hotel for business or leisure needs. I was given the opportunity to enjoy both while at your hotel and I thank you and your staff.
