|Professional Association of Innkeepers International|
In 1988 two innkeepers, Pat Hardy and JoAnn Bell, created the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII) as an outgrowth of their successful monthly newsletter, innkeeping. Their goal was to serve the industry nationally by providing programs and services that would enhance the professional skills of both active and aspiring innkeepers. From a tiny office in Santa Barbara, California, PAII has grown into a national organization of nearly 3000 members. Pat and JoAnn retired from the association in 2002, and turned the successful association over to an industry consortium called the Distinguished Inns Alliance. Today PAII is run by a professional staff based in Haddon Heights, New Jersey. It is governed by a nine person Board of Directors, along with numerous committees and task forces.
PAII's Mission Statement
We are committed to fostering a knowledgeable, caring and conscientious community of professional innkeepers, networking with each other throughout the world.
Excerpted from PAII's Vision Statement:
PAII STANDS FOR a commitment to excellence and professionalism within the innkeeping community and among the general public.

When we arrived, she had a small plate of cheese, crackers, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and sparkling grape juice. Also, she had written us a welcome note and a box of chocolates on our bed. When we returned from our events, she had out bed turned down with a chocolate on each pillow and a decanter of ice cold water. Breakfast was just delicious- all homemade! [...]"
