Open With a Thank You Hotels+ should+ always+ let+ guests+ know+ that+ their+ feedback+ is+ appreciated+ and+ valued.+ Begin+ your+ response+by+thanking+the+reviewer+for+sharing+his+ or+her+feedback.++ + 2. Acknowledge and Address No+ doubt+ about+ it;+ a+ nega=ve+ review+ s=ngs!+ But+ suck+up+your+pride+and+apologize+for+the+nega=ve+ experience.+ Make+ sure+ to+ address+ the+ guest’s+ specific+ concerns+ and+ let+ them+ know+ what+ improvements+ you+ are+ making+ to+ ensure+ that+ future+ guests+ will+ not+ encounter+ the+ same+ problem.++ + 3.
