We hope you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again soon.

How do I ask this question without using "HOPE" twice? I would like to keep it short and simple, as this will be used for text messaging.

Would something like this be better?

We hope you enjoyed your visit and we are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

  • Or make a thing out of it: 'We hope you enjoyed your visit ... and we hope to see you again soon.' – Edwin Ashworth Jun 11 '20 at 20:32
  • @Mari-LouA That might do! Short and sweet, just what I need! Just like Mari-Lou! – WayBehind Jun 11 '20 at 20:50
  • An alternative (there are several): We hope you enjoyed your visit, and we'd like to see you again soon. – Jason Bassford Jun 12 '20 at 2:53

Both examples need a comma after "visit" and before "and" to avoid the ungrammatical fused sentence. Beyond that, you could be more succinct with:

We hope you enjoyed your visit and are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

(Note that there is no comma in my sentence above because the word "and" is joining two verb phrases rather than two independent clauses.)
