タクシーの手配をお願いしよう

Asking for a taxi
ホテルのフロントに電話してタクシーを手配しよう。
ホテルからタクシーに乗るのならコンシェルジュサービスを利用するのが良いですね。大抵の高級ホテルではコンシェルジュサービスがあります。他の方法としてはフロントの係員にタクシーを呼んでくれるように頼むことです。しかし、誰かに頼む前にホテルから自分の行き先までシャトルバスを出しているかどうか確かめましょう。もしシャトルバスがあるのならおそらく速くて安いです。

Hello, this is the front. What can I do for you?

I am Suzuki, stay at No123 room. I ask a favor of you. Could you make a taxi reservation for me? I want go to the airport next morning after checking out the hotel. It's acceptable to call a Uber instead of a taxi. It seems that a Uber is more popular than a taxi here.

I am Suzuki, and I am staying at No123 room. I would like to ask a favor of you. Could you make a taxi reservation for me? I want to go to the airport the next morning after checking out of the hotel. It's acceptable to call    Uber instead of a taxi. It seems that    Uber is more popular than a taxi here.

1. The conjunction 'and' is needed to connect the two independent clauses.
2. The clause that starts after 'and' requires a subject. We could use 'I'.
3. The present progressive 'I am staying' is usually used here. You're talking about the present situation.
4. We use the present simple to show repetition, habit or generalization. For example, 'I play tennis every Friday'. It should not be used in your sentence, so instead of using 'I ask', we could use 'I would like to ask a favor' or 'May I ask a favor'
5. The preposition 'to' is required to connect the verbs 'want' and 'go'.
6. We use the definite article in front of a noun when we believe the listener/reader knows exactly which specific noun we are referring to. You're referring to a specific noun, specific 'morning', so we need the definite article 'the' here.
7. The preposition 'of' is required, and we commonly use the structure 'to check out of a place'. "check out something / check something out" has a different meaning. It means 'to examine something; to think about something'.
8. 9. The article 'a' is not needed with the proper noun 'Uber'.
Yes, that is fine. What time do you need to be at the airport? Do you have any other requests except for Uber?

My flight will be at eight o'clock in the morning, and we need to arrive at the airport at lease two hours earlier of the flight. So I want to arrive at the airport at six next morning. What time should I leave for the airport? I want a trustworthy taxi or driver.

My flight will be at eight o'clock in the morning, and we need to arrive at the airport at least two hours earlier   . So I want to arrive at the airport at six the next morning. What time should I leave for the airport? I want a trustworthy taxi or driver.

1. Proper spelling of the phrase 'at least'.
2. 'of the flight' is redundant after 'earlier', we do not needed. Either use 'two hours earlier' or 'two hours before the flight'. Also, 'of' is not usually use after 'earlier' in this context.
3. You're referring to a specific noun, specific 'morning', so we need the definite article 'the' here.
I suggest you leave for the airport at five-thirty. What do you think? Is it too late? Uber drivers are always on time, don't worry.

I see. Are thirty minutes enough for me to arrive at the airport from here? I'm anxious for a heavy traffic. If there are no traffic jams in early morning, then it will be OK. Also, how much does it cost me to go to the airport? If possible, I would like to decide the fare.

1. The preposition 'about' is required, and we commonly use the structure 'to be anxious about something'.
2. 'Heavy traffic' is an uncountable noun phrase, so we don't need the indefinite article with it.
3. The article 'the' is needed here. We say 'in the early morning' or 'early in the morning'.
It is more than enough. There isn't much traffic in the morning. If it makes you comfortable, Uber can come at five instead. Is that okay?

I see. Then could you make a reservation for 5 o'clock? I have never get on a Uber so far, and don't know how to pay the fare. Can I use my credit card? I would be pleased that the fare will be fixed in advance. Then we can use the service without worrying the fare.

1. The past participle 'got' is needed after 'I have' to properly form the present perfect.
2. The article 'a' is not needed with the proper noun 'Uber'.
3. This is a conditional sentence and we need 'if' instead of 'that', and also, we need the verb 'could' instead of 'will' in the if-clause.
4. The preposition 'about' is required, and we commonly use the structure 'to worry about something'.
The fare will depend on the distance covered. That will be dependant on the route you will take. Therefore, the driver will advise tomorrow. Alternatively, download the application on your phone to make it easier for you. Do you have an internet connection?

I understand. Could you tell me how much it costs us generally to go the airport? I will talk with a drive based on the ordinary fare tomorrow. I can use smartphone and download the application, it seems a little challenging for us to master the application in English. It takes us non-native speaker long hours or minutes to accomplish procedures on the appli. Thank you for your support.

3. The word 'drive' doesn't fit the context, I assume you wanted to use the word 'driver'.
4. A determiner is needed to specify which smartphone you're referring to. We could use 'my'.
5. 'Us' is plural, so the plural 'speakers' is needed here.
6. Proper spelling of the word 'app'.
