When I check in a hotel, I book a room. The hotel manager registers my name etc for that. Now, from the point of view of the manager, how can I describe his action? Is it right to say: The hotel manager made/gave booking for me. or what?

Is it right to say?

The hotel manager has been asked not to issue/make room reservation to the foreign tourists.

Thanks

The hotel manager registered me.-- Nowadays, people usual book (= reserve) a room before they arrive, and the hotel staff book (= reserve) the room for them. When guest arrive, they register and the hotel clerk registers them.

The hotel manager has been asked not to reserve rooms for foreign tourists.-- How nice! Where are the tourists supposed to stay??

First of all, in America it wouldn't be a hotel manager who does your registration when you arrive in normal situations. A front desk clerk will perfrom that part of the hotel operation. A booking is the same as a reservation which you may have made on line or by phone. When you arrive the hotel which you booked, you still have to go through the registration process. You can say:

"The front desk staff helped me with the registration".
Thanks MM and dimsumexpress.

Believe it or not, there are still some governments in the world who just kick out foreign tourists from some parts of their countries to make sure that they do not see skeletons in the cupboard.
Wow! Too bad.
