1) My staff will do their best to make sure I enjoy in my stay.

2) My staff will do their best to make sure me enjoy in my stay.

Which pronoun should I choose after "make sure", subject or object?

After the "make sure", you need to choose a subject because it has to be:

"make sure (that)" + a complete sentence

for the whole sentence to be complete. Using your example sentences, it should be:

My staff will do their best to make sure (that) I enjoy my stay.

But to me, "my" staff making sure that "I" enjoy my stay sounds a bit odd. I think it needs be something like:

The staff at the hotel will do their best to make sure (that) I enjoy my stay there.

  • May I know the reason for inserting "there" in your last sentence as we don't where the person is staying. – ARYF May 2 '16 at 8:03

    My apology for the unnecessary insertion... As you said, we don't know where the person of the subject is staying, but I assumed that person of the subject obviously knows where he/she is staying at, plus I used the "the" before hotel which kind of specifies a hotel, so I thought it wouldn't be wrong to insert the "there" at the end of this sentence... – Mikiko May 2 '16 at 8:14
  • Just for a clarification I am asking, if the person is staying at the hotel, can I delete "the" from the sentence? – ARYF May 2 '16 at 8:21
  • Sure. Go ahead:-) – Mikiko May 2 '16 at 8:22
