Tips for Writing a Better Hotel Hospitality Resume

Quantify your hotel hospitality experience

Focus on ways that you’ve helped improve guest services, or emphasize positive feedback you’ve received from hotel guests. When sharing your achievements, try to include hard numbers to measure your success. As long as these numbers align with the scope of your target job and employer, they’re a great way to flesh out the detail on your resume.


  • Analyzed check-in patterns for 1,000 guests over 6 months to find and fix common problems, increasing customer satisfaction by 20%
  • Managed daily check-in and check-out, collecting guest payments for 350 standard rooms and 50 guest suites

Use simple formatting

To ensure your resume makes a good first impression, keep your format clean and simple. Try a traditional serif font like Century or Cambria for your body text and a clean sans serif font like Calibri for your subject headings. Use color sparingly, if at all. Avoid fancier Microsoft Word format options like WordArt, Tables, and Text Boxes (which can muck up ATS anyway).

This conservative approach is well-suited to your field, but it’s also often the best way to display your various career information. As Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

Common Action Verbs for Hotel Hospitality Resumes

One of the most frequent resume mistakes is using too few verbs. You may fall into repeating the same generic verb (say, “Manage”) many times. This repetition can distract the hiring manager and fail to show the varied nature of your experience. The following list will help you mix up the verbs on your hotel hospitality resume:

Action Verbs
Analyze Assist
Coordinate Create
Deliver Design
Generate Greet
Handle Identify
Improve Implement
Initiate Optimize
Prepare Reduce
Resolve Schedule
Select Simplify
Supervise Train

How to Align Your Resume With a Job Posting

For each job in your Experience section, consider adding a description of the hotel or facility. You can place this description in brackets right next to or below the facility name. It also helps to match formatting. For instance, if you’ve italicized the facility name, italicize the description too.

Facility descriptions let you show any similarity between the places you’ve worked and the place you now want to work. For instance, maybe you’ve worked for a similar size hotel or organization. If you’re applying for a job in a large or top-rated hotel, use facility descriptions to emphasize any background you have in these environments. By working these details into your resume, you can make it that much more relevant to the job opening at hand.
