Some Samples of Advertisement Summary in English
“What I’m really trying to say is that they treat me like a person. A rather overused phrase, I agree but other business women will know what I mean. If Fm in the restaurant there’s none of that over effusive welcome followed by a table behind a pilar or near the kitchen door. I don’t have to take my briefcase into the bar either, to prove all I want is a drink. When I go to my room, there are some little extra touches that make me feel specially welcome. It’s not simply the softer decor. Lila have thoughtfully provided a hair dryer and make up mirror, things I appreciate away from home.
And they can even come up with an iron or a pair of tights at a moments notice. So, I always stay at Lila Hotel whenever I can. I like their friendly and business-like attitude towards me. As speaking as a woman, you can’t say fairer then that.” Lila Hotels International.
