Customer Reviews

So glad it's back for another season - but you shouldn't buy this season on iTunes as is.

With the death of Kitchen Nightmares, the seeming hiatus of Restaurant Impossible, and the fact that "Hotel Hell" offers little actual business know-how in favor of heightened drama, Hotel Impossible remains one of the best "fix a failing business" shows on the air after 8 seasons.

The host, Anthony Melchiorri, is likeable, knowledgable, and genuinely considered an expert in his field. He takes great pains to convince the audience that "this isn't a fake show" (in his own words, when challenged by an owner for supposedly setting something up), and I'm actually inclined to believe him; he focuses on making simple and cost-effective changes to existing business systems, and the results speak for themselves.

The real star of each episode is often the breathtaking location Anthony is visiting. We've been treated to episodes in the likes of Niagra Falls, Jamaica, and more; the cinematography is often stunning, and many episodes highlight a unique activity in the area. There's a reason this show is on the Travel Channel, after all.

If you're still a fan of these "tough fixer goes into a failing business and points out the flaws, then solves them with limited time and resources" type shows, Hotel Impossible is an obvious choice. If you prefer to spend your 43 minutes per episode immersed in drama, you may prefer the dumpster fire that is Gordon Ramsay's Hotel Hell instead.

UPDATE: unfortunately, I can't recommend that you purchase this season on iTunes. For whatever reason, buying the season pass does not include any of the "Five Star Secrets" episodes which aired as part of this season. To add insult to injury, those episodes can be seen on the Travel Channel site (or mobile app) for free - and yet those who really love the show and purchase the season pass don't get them. There's not even an option to buy this content separately as its own "season" on iTunes! (Note: it really should be included with the main season, but at least give us some way to get this content!)

This is all likely a move on Travel Channel's part to encourage use of their site, but unfortunately the decision serves as a large middle finger to the biggest fans of the show. Until this is resolved, you should not buy this season pass - and unfortunately I can't bring myself to buy the next season pass if doing so won't even get me access to all the episodes.

I will update this again if iTunes and Travel Channel can provide season pass holders with a way to actually view the entire season's worth of content.
