Hotel expert Anthony Melchiorri returns to upgrade Monday nights with an all-new seventh season of Travel Channel’s hit series “Hotel Impossible,” premiering on Monday, April 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. As one of the network’s top-rated series for 2015, this new season, comprised of 13 one-hour episodes, is filled with big surprises, moving moments, outrageous characters and unforgettable confrontations. Armed with over 20 years of experience in the hospitality business, a no-nonsense approach and a team of skilled designers, Melchiorri is on a mission to revive and repair every property he visits. Some hotels will follow his advice and be saved, others won’t!
“Call me a man on a mission,” says Melchiorri, who also serves as co-executive producer of the series. “I am obsessed with turning around hotels that are struggling to survive. And this season, we have found an unbelievable array of hotels plagued with an unbelievable array of problems. I’m talking about places that are literally on life support. But I refuse to pull the plug. I am willing to do whatever it takes to bring these properties back to life.”
In the season premiere, Melchiorri tackles his first hostel – located within the historic Gardner Hotel, a second generation,family-run business in El Paso, Texas. Hoping to capitalize on the budget-friendly trend of room-sharing accommodations, Joe, the owner, has converted half of the Gardner’s rooms into a hostel. Incredible stories of turnaround this season, in locations spanning the country, include: Anchorage, Alaska; Bayfield, Wis.; Branson West, Mo.; Cody, Wyo.; Libby, Mont.; Lihue, Hawaii; North Conway, N.H.; Rockland, Maine; Shreveport, La.; Westerly, R.I. and Winter Haven, Fla.
Transformed Traveler adventures to the seven places in the world where time seems to stand still. Join us in LaHabana Cuba, the island of Lamu Kenya, Pompeii Italy, Amish country, Ouro Preto Brazil, Old Sana'a Yemen and Istanbul Turkey for a sensory explosion.

Canadian-American food stylist and cookbook author, Maria Filice,
Filice’s presentation at the gourmet food outlet is the latest showcase of her growing celebrity status, which also
includes television segments on CHCH TV 11 with Bob Cowan and Lori DeAngelis. “Monthly Mondays with
Maria” airs on the first Monday of each month at 8:10am and features tips on making simple, rustic recipes. “I want
my viewers to get back in the kitchen and break bread with family and friends. I’m all about supporting local
farmers, using seasonal vegetables and fruits and combining them in a style that occasionally breaks a few rules.”
Filice’s cookbook, Breaking Bread in L’Aquila, was published on April 6, 2010, on the first anniversary of the
earthquake that devastated the Abruzzo region. Releasing the book on the earthquake’s anniversary was a message
to the people of the region that “we have not forgotten.” To underscore that sentiment, the author is donating the
book’s net proceeds to the restoration efforts and the assistance still desperately needed in L’Aquila.
The cookbook has received abundant praise from print and online reviewers, including the Library Journal, i-Italy,
and Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts. Filice also writes a lively and entertaining blog from her kitchen at
