That's when hurting hotels call in the man known as the "hotel fixer," Anthony Melchiorri, owner of Argeo Hospitality, and the host of the popular Travel Channel reality television show "Hotel Impossible."
"Hotel Impossible" is now in its fifth season and Melchiorri
continues to live up to his
hotelier mantra, "I'm on a mission and I won't stop until every hotel you check into is perfect.
experience as a hospitality industry expert, he
not only seeks to repair and remodel the physical aspects of the hotel, he
creates a system of standards within that will increase unity and success in every area of hospitality.
That word doesn't exist in Melchiorri's lexicon of lodging.
That's why the owners of struggling Stratford Court Hotel, in Cedar City, Steve and Gina Nelson, submitted their story and application to the show in hopes that Melchiorri
would come and assist them in turning around their hotel.

worked to bring pride and success back to the Stratford Court hotel.

Schmidt was familiar with the integrity of Melchiorri and his work and was excited when asked to be a part of the project.
"I agreed to do the show because what Anthony (Melchiorri) tells them is absolutely right.
While "Hotel Impossible" is a successful show, Melchiorri's
mission has always been more about results than ratings.
"I'm not here to embarrass or to get a good TV show," he
"The ratings would probably be better if I did crazy stuff, but I'm not interested in that.
I'm interested in if these people can talk to my kids and say, 'Your dad's a good guy.'" He
continued, "If I come in here and try to embarrass people … I can't live with it, I won't live with it, and I don't want to be on TV and known as the hotel expert if that's my legacy.
