    They are both OK and mean the same.

    Hello, Sahil Dhankhar:

    You have already received the answer, but I only wanted to add a few ideas that I believe are reasonably accurate.

    If you come to the United States, I suggest that you use one of these questions:

    1. Can you recommend a good hotel?

    2. Can you recommend a good hotel to me?

    3. Can you recommend to me a good hotel? (You will find that many reputable writers use this kind of question. Some Americans, however, may not be entirely comfortable with it. Personally, I am.)

    I know that this is 2015, but I sincerely feel that most Americans still are NOT comfortable with: "Can you recommend me a good hotel?"

    Some books classify "recommend" along with such verbs as "suggest." Of course, NO one would ever say "Can you suggest me a good hotel?"

    Re: He recommended ME A GOOD LAWYER/A GOOD LAWYER to me.

    Bhai Sahab, this sentence, in my opinion, is also correct and has the different meaning:- He recommended me to a good lawyer. (may be for the post of assistant of the lawyer) that is why I thought that he recommended me a good lawyer is somewhat less correct and as one other member said he recommended to me a good lawyer will be correct seems fine.
    What do you say?
