Hotel Impossible's Anthony Melchiorri Revisits the MGM Grand Fire of Nov. 21, 1980 - WAKEUP CALL: Online Hospitality Risk Management

www.wakeupcall.net [cached]

Naples Herald, Gary Levine, shares an insightful, must read interview with Hotel Impossible's Anthony Melchiorri.
Immediately, I realized that in order to wholly and accurately understand the scope and ramifications of anything hotel-related, I needed to reach out to Anthony Melchiorri, host of the Travel Channel's "Hotel Impossible" and knower of all things hospitality-relevant. His wealth of knowledge, in the hospitality industry, is unsurpassed and I was confident that he could provide a higher level of understanding regarding this dreadful event. Always approachable...always enthusiastic about improving the hotel industry...Mr. Melchiorri promised to set aside some time to chat and to answer the many questions that I had regarding the MGM Grand tragedy. Anthony Melchiorri: "What happened in 1980...there were a lot of fire codes for major hotels in Vegas, and around the country, already in place. Anthony continued. He began to discuss...almost boast...of the prodigious New York City fire safety standards. Anthony Melchiorri:"Each state has different rules and regulations and codes...some more restrictive than others. Gary Levine:Then, Anthony, why is this not the standard in all 50 states? Anthony Melchiorri: "Well...I can't speak to government policy. Anthony then made certain to emphasize that, in no way, did he intend to insinuate that independently-owned hotels, as a whole, had lax fire-safety standards...as that is, in all truthfulness, the case. He reiterated that while most non-branded hotels have clear and concise safety plans, an ample number of struggling, independent facilities have unsatisfactory fire-safety plans and measures in place. I suppose that Anthony recognized my inability to comprehend how ALL hotels were not held to the strictest of fire-safety standards. "If you're asking me 'should it be a federal requirement that the safety standards are at the highest level...at New York standards or higher," he injected into our silence, "100 percent. The reason that I'm doing this article is for that reason. The reason that I do my show is for that reason." When Anthony and I spoke last in September, he passionately stated that he, too, is a consumer and that he frequently travels with his daughters. "The reason I do the show is for that reason," he reiterated, "to bring this to the attention...not only of government...not only of hotels...but to the travelling public. Anthony Melchiorri: "While I can't tell you about nationwide code changes, I can tell you that you must have fire-retardant furniture, drapery, wall-covering in all hotels in New York City. You can go back and look at the show that I did in Myrtle Beach a few years ago (please take a moment to check out this brief video from the episode "Making Waves" http://www.travelchannel.com/shows/hotel-impossible/video/the-drapes-are-too-dangerous)." During that episode, Anthony and a crew from the Myrtle Beach Fire Department removed curtains from the hotel and ignited them in the parking lot. Anthony Melchiorri: "Again...I would say that if you have a brand...a Hilton, a Marriott...you're going to have the same type of fire-safety in those hotels. Anthony Melchiorri: "100 percent yes, but 100 percent confident...being part of development conversations and being in design conversations...the first thing that architects are looking at is fire-safety. Anthony Melchiorri: "Yes...yes. Anthony Melchiorri: "That ALL high-rise fire safety policies and procedures should be at the same level as they are in New York City. New York City has the highest level of fire codes for high-rise hotels, I think, in the country...and, probably, the world. And I'd like to see those codes implemented throughout the world." I am hopeful that each of the aforementioned hotel tragedies has, somehow, served as an opportunity to improve hotel fire-safety. 35 years after the horrific MGM Grand Hotel fire, despite improvements in fire-retardant furnishings and materials, with more rigid codes in place, consumers still need to be judicious when selecting hotels and vigilant when lodging. As always, I sincerely thank Anthony Melchiorri for taking time out of his overloaded schedule to chat.

Travel Channel's 'Hotel Impossible' with Anthony Melchiorri: premiering April 9
First, there was "Mission Impossible" (thanks Tom), then there was "Dinner Impossible" and "Restaurant Impossible" - now, the Travel Channel is helping out a few hotels by sending in "Hotel Fixer" Anthony Melchiorri, in its new series, "Hotel Impossible". This weekly one-hour show, airing every Monday at 10 PM ET/PT, will show Anthony monitoring online reviews, critiquing standard service practices, and making decisions on hotel infrastructure. Each episode will feature a different hotel with the owners completely relinquishing control and livelihood in an attempt to resurrect their establishments. "I have been a hotel expert for more than 20 years - and it never gets boring. I walk into a hotel and know immediately what needs to be fixed. I still get excited about helping people turn around their hotels," says Melchiorri.
