TRAVEL CHANNEL HOTEL FIXER ANTHONY MELCHIORRI RETURNS WITH NEW EPISODES OF "HOTEL IMPOSSIBLE"

NEW YORK (September 22, 2016) - Hotel expert Anthony Melchiorri returns for a new season of Travel Channel's hit series "Hotel Impossible" and his newest show "Hotel Impossible: Five Star Secrets." In all-new episodes of "Hotel Impossible," premiering on Monday, October 24 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, Melchiorri tackles some of the wildest challenges of his career as he helps struggling and dysfunctional hotels get back on their feet and on the path to success. In "Hotel Impossible: Five Star Secrets," premiering with back-to-back episodes at 11:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, he takes viewers for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour inside lavish hotels that have reached five-star status. Melchiorri pulls back the curtain to reveal the secrets that make these elite hotels so exceptional and deserving of the top rating - from the over-the-top luxuries to the dedicated people working there. At the end of each episode, Melchiorri chooses his "Five Star Favorite," an employee that impressed him the most, and surprises that person with a $5,000 super tip.

"'Five Star Secrets' is a natural companion to 'Hotel Impossible,' because achieving everyday excellence is no easy task, even for the most deluxe hotels," said Melchiorri. "It's a privilege to take viewers behind the scenes of the hospitality business - by exploring the most luxurious hotels in the world and helping struggling business owners become the best they can be."

In the new season of "Hotel Impossible," Melchiorri works his magic on not just the physical hotel transformations, he also repairs relationships, gives the necessary tools and works his hardest to create a brand new perspective for people who really need it - whether he's in the Alaskan wilderness, a treehouse lodge in Sturgis, S.D., or even a sleep-in "safari" filled with deadly animals. Additional locations featured this season include Albany, N.Y., Bayfield, Wis., Eureka Springs, Ark. and the beach towns of North Wildwood, N.J. and Ocean Beach, N.Y. As a hotel "fixer," Melchiorri's in-your-face approach to business can sometimes be tough to swallow. Some owners follow his advice - others don't. No matter what, it's always a wild ride!

In the series premiere of "Hotel Impossible: Five Star Secrets," Melchiorri does Vegas like a VIP at the state-of-the-art Aria Resort and Casino. Additional properties featured this season include Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas; Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Hawaii; The Greenbrier, White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.; Hotel del Coronado, Coronado, Calif.; The Lotte New York Palace Hotel, New York City; One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico and Winvian Farms, Morris, Conn.
