    She meets all the qualifications your hotel requires.

    I would be careful about saying this. It is a little presumptuous to know exactly all that another employer requires of a prospsective employee.
    If you have seen the advertisement for the position she is applying for, which gives essential and desirable requirements, you might rephrase it along the lines of:

    She fulfills all the requirements you are seeking of a prospective employee.
    or
    She meets all the qualifications your hotel seeks in a prospecitve employee.
