    " Hotels should be clean so that the clients can be satisfied."

    Is it acceptable or should the article before clients be omitted?


    Thank you

    The article is not necessary but the whole sentence is not natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have tried to rephrase it. Does, 'Clean hotels are conducive to client satisfaction?' sound acceptable to you?

    Thank you in advance.
