Anthony Melchiorri
Anthony Melchiorri has a proven track record of understanding a company's vision, its individual parts, and how to make those parts work together to complete the whole picture. Knowing that attention to detail and making each part of the operation functional and strong are key to profitability, Melchiorri has developed and repositioned some of the finest and most high profile properties in the United States including the first Nickelodeon Hotel and Resort and the landmark Algonquin Hotel. He takes on clients in need of development or immediate repositioning, applies his experience and ability to assemble teams specializing in hotel management, and adds value for the owners and developers to ultimately increase their bottom line. Melchiorri brings his expertise - with over 20 years in the hospitality industry - as the "hotel fixer" to Travel Channel's original series "Hotel Impossible," where he helps turn around the business of a struggling hotel fighting to survive. In addition to being the host and lead in "Hotel Impossible," he also runs his own company, Argeo Hospitality, consulting on hotel projects for private owners and investors. Melchiorri was put on the fast track to success early on at the landmark Plaza Hotel as director of front office operations. By the age of 29, Melchiorri became a seasoned professional and was selected to be general manager of the Lucerne Hotel in 1997. Under Melchiorri's management, the Lucerne was developed into one of the top ranking hotels in New York City, and selected as the New York Times Travel Guide's Best Service Hotel. Melchiorri was then appointed general manager of the world famous Algonquin Hotel. He and his team closed the hotel for a month and oversaw a basement-to-roof renovation, including all the restaurants and back-of-house areas. Not only did Melchiorri complete the project on schedule and on budget, but he and his team re-positioned the Algonquin to become a highly-rated Michelin Guide Hotel. Further, the hotel's public relations campaign won a Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International "Best of Show Award" for marketing. After the Algonquin was repositioned by Melchiorri and his team, the hotel owner sold it for a significant return and asked Melchiorri to be senior vice president of the first Nickelodeon Hotel and Resort. There, he oversaw the 25-acre, 800-room resort helping it to become one of the most sought-after travel destinations in Orlando, Florida. Melchiorri successfully made the transition into the asset management side of the business, becoming the first vice president of Tishman Hotels and the asset manager of the Westin Hotel in Times Square. As senior vice president of New York Hotel Management Company, Melchiorri helped develop a 310-all-suite hotel in Times Square overseeing construction, design, pre-opening, opening and post-opening operations. When Melchiorri's work was complete, the TripAdvisor guest satisfaction score for the hotel had reached 96%, putting the hotel in the top two percentile of all hotels in New York City.

"She's trying to reposition it, and so we've been working on giving her the skills she needs to run it," Melchiorri said.

Melchiorri added, "We produce a real show, and it takes so many people working really hard behind the scenes. We do this under budget and with time constraints so there's nothing 'produced' about this show. It's not a staged show, that's for sure."
"Hotel Impossible" airs on the Travel Channel. The website explains that Melchiorri secretly scouts hotels and identifies their biggest problems. He then meets with the staff from front desk receptionists to housekeeping to the owners themselves to determine the key operation issues.
After coming up with a plan and prescribing the changes that need to be made, Melchiorri revamps and remotivates the staff and transforms the hotel.
A final decision has not yet been made on when the Guest House episode will air, but Melchiorri said it will likely be in November or December.
