GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
Spanish term or phrase:
(agradecemos sus 10 años) de confianza
We\'d like to thank you for choosing us /being our guest/ making our first decade a success
Explanation: I offer various options that would need to be adjusted to fit the hotel's profile, number of stars, house style, etc.
We'd like to thank you for choosing us during our first ten years in business/ of operations / in the hotel trade.
We'd like to thank you for being our guest during our first ten years of catering to the discriminating traveller.
We'd like to thank you for making our first decade (in the hotel trade) a success.
Some hotels in big cities perceive a high percentage of their revenues from conference bookings. To avoid embarrassment, it would be a good idea (if not too daunting a project) for the hotel to filter its e-mail list to sort direct and indirect clients and send them separate custom messages. This is probably way over the top, but I sometimes do this kind of custom translation for conference organizers.
"Thank you for using our services" (or, as Jenni suggests, "choosing us"). I'm not sure "patronage" is any better than "custom". To my ear it sounds even more old-fashioned and is too close a congnate of the verb ("to patronise").
What kind of hotel is this and who are its typical guests? If it's one of those huge holiday hotels on the Costa del Sol catering for the holiday crowd or a more upmarket establishment then the register will be different.
Yes, loyalty is a fairly good solution. Though, as a customer, I don't like companies talking openly about my "loyalty".... it might eb something they refer to internally, and OK when explicit in a "loyalty card" system... but I would bristle at it being referred to in an e-mail
We really appreciate your support over the last 10 years
Explanation: There are many options here all of which will be correct, but here´s my suggestion for consideration. I agree about "loyalty", which is probably too strong in the context here! Suerte. Best wishes. Sian.
