Sample Answer:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am Rita, a senior executive at TCS and I am writing to inform you that I have recently stayed at your hotel and left my bag in the room I stayed in.

My family had recently been to Bangalore to attend a wedding ceremony held at your hotel (The Leela) on 10th March. We stayed in room no. 2100 for two days. After reaching back to my home in Delhi, I noticed that I missed my bag in your hotel room. The bag was probably kept near the bed. It is a red color, medium size bag. Since, it contains some precious jewelry and few dresses of mine, so I need to receive it on urgent basis.

I spoke to the hotel receptionist and she asked me to report the matter to you. I would really appreciate if you could courier it to my home address as soon as possible.

Looking forward to getting a positive response. (158 words)

Yours Faithfully
