West Virginia Community focused hotel chosen as location for Saira Hospitality’s first permanent hospitality school


The launch of a permanent school is a huge milestone for the 501c3 non-profit which aims to educate hospitality brands in how to give before they take, create stronger bonds with locals and disrupt the industry’s traditional recruitment processes which tend to overlook locals in favour of international applicants or poaching from competitors.

Both set to launch in spring 2021, trailblazing NGO Saira Hospitality announced {its} first permanent hospitality school in collaboration with The Monastery Boutique Hotel in Wheeling, West Virginia. Together, Saira and The Monastery will work to create enhanced learning and development opportunities for those in the local community who are unemployed or underemployed, ultimately providing jobs to successful graduates within the luxury hotel & it’s community spaces. With the help of Saira, The Monastery will be able to achieve its aim of creating a unique offering which is unfailingly authentic to the destination, where guests, staff and community members alike are invited in to explore and expand their horizons.
