Hotel Impossible

Hotel Impossible


I'm Anthony Melchiorri. Outstanding hotels are my world, and after 20 years in the hotel business, there's no problem I can't fix. All around America, there are hotels that are hurting. They're understaffed, mismanaged, and in desperate need of a facelift. That's where I come in. I've turned around some of the most famous hotels in America, from boutique hotels to big-city landmarks. I'm on a mission, and I won't stop until every hotel you check into is perfect.

When hotel owners can't deal with staff, their occupancy is down, and the property is falling apart, who do they call in? Call in Anthony Melchiorri, a hotel 'fixer" who claims he can turn any hotel around in weeks. Each week Anthony tries to save another failing hotel and will do whatever it takes to turn it around.
