Non-native speakers often struggle with constructing sentences with the word “suggest”. The following sentences are incorrect:

Please suggest me a good hotel.

She suggested me to visit that museum.


You could say instead:

Please suggest a good hotel to me.

She suggested (that) I visit that museum.

She suggested visiting that museum.


When it is used in a that-clause, you need to use the subjunctive, which is just the bare infinitive (no to):

We suggested (that) she go to the cinema on Friday nights

He suggested (that) he be more careful
