Hotel Impossible

Hotel Impossible

Anthony Melchiorri brings his expertise as the “hotel fixer” to Travel Channel’s TV series Hotel Impossible. In this weekly 1-hour program, Anthony helps turn around the business of a hotel struggling to survive. With more than 20 years in the hospitality business, he has developed and repositioned some of the finest and most high-profile properties in the US, including the first Nickelodeon Suites Resort and the landmark Algonquin Hotel in NYC.

Anthony got his start in the industry as the director of front office operations for NYC’s The Plaza Hotel. At the age of 29, he also developed The Lucerne Hotel into one of the top-ranking hotels in NYC. Seven years later, he and his team repositioned The Algonquin into a highly-rated Michelin Guide hotel. The hotel owner went on to sell the property for a significant return on investment and asked Anthony to be senior vice president of the first Nickelodeon Suites Resort.

Today, Anthony runs his own company, Argeo Hospitality, consulting on hotel projects for private owners and investors. He currently resides in New York with his wife and 3 children.
