    Red face The meaning of the word "address"

    Hello!
    I made a booking at a hotel.
    I sent the hotel an email to confirm my booking,
    and I also asked them for non-smoking room with an additional bed.

    The reply I received from them says
    "Your reservation has been confirmed and fully addresses your specified preferences."

    I don't understand the meaning of the word "address" in this context.
    Could you please rephrase it for me for clarification?

    Thank you!

    Definition 3 here addresses your question.

    Incidentally, the original letter sounds rather pompous.

    Thank you for your comment.
    From my limited experience with English, I felt the expression sounded a bit odd.
    So I asked. Thank you again for your reply.
