Anthony heads to southern Vermont to put his skills to the test at one of the oldest ski slopes in the state: Bromley Mountain.
Outfitted with over 40 ski trails, this area in Vermont is a hotspot for families who love to spend time on the slopes. The 50-room, chalet-style Bromley Sun Lodge is nestled right at the foot of the mountain and features a world-class amenity that no other accommodation in the area has: ski-in/ski-out rooms.
And yet, despite being steps away from the lifts, the lodge lacks curb appeal and hospitality. Although the lobby is massive, it’s very dark and dungeon-like, and the decor is less then desirable — reminiscent of what you might find in an old folks’ home.
When Anthony meets Sonya, the front desk agent, he is confused by the very low occupancy rate, with just one room filled in the entire hotel. Can Anthony turn the lodge around and raise the Bromley Sun’s occupancy before it’s forced to close its doors forever? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight @ 10|9c.

Anthony travels to the snowy mountains of Mammoth Lakes, CA, to bring a beautiful, rustic family-owned lodge into the modern age. Robert Schaubmayer has owned and operated the 58-room Alpenhof Lodge since 1973, and it sits just steps away from the chair lifts of the popular ski resort, Mammoth Mountain.
Despite its charming, first-rate exterior, the Alpenhof’s outdated interior and dysfunctional family dynamics are keeping it from being a 5-star hotel. Robert refuses to pass on responsibility to any of his family members, including his 2 sons, who currently own an extremely popular restaurant next to the hotel.
After doing a bit of digging, Anthony also discovers that the family’s marketing efforts are mostly unsuccessful, despite being so close to a huge tourist attraction.
With time running out, can Anthony convince Robert to step down after 40 years of running the Alpenhof Lodge before it gets permanently stuck in the past? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight at 10|9c.

Anthony travels to the tourist town of Negril, Jamaica, in hopes of fixing the issues plaguing the beautiful Gardenia Resort.
Anthony’s attempts to capitalize on the nearly 3 million visitors Jamaica gets every year. The Gardenia Resort’s current occupancy rate is at a shockingly low 5%, and the owner, Carlyle, is behind on his lease payments.
Anthony instantly becomes frustrated when the front desk agent tells him to do his own research to find local activities. After calming down, Anthony sets his sights on the dark and dreary lobby and his depressing room.
After his initial walkthrough, Anthony turns to interior designer Blanche Garcia to help brighten up the lobby and some of the guest rooms.
Finally, Anthony attempts to break the resort’s general manager out of his timid, soft-spoken shell by taking him on a field trip to Rick’s Cafe for some cliff jumping.
Will Anthony’s effort to transform Richard into a strong leader be enough to elevate the Gardenia Resort to the top echelon of Jamaica hotels? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight at 10|9c.

Located off the northwest coast of Puerto Rico, Rincon is home to some of the best surfing in the world, making the area popular among both locals and tourists. The Casa Verde hotel is no exception, but in recent years, the hotel has been losing money when it should be profiting. A reason for the hotel’s downward spiral is its bar, Rock Bottom. The bar is extremely loud, caters to a young college crowd and is open all hours of the night. The bar brings money in, but if things don’t change soon, the hotel will hit rock bottom itself.

Anthony is disgusted, and he hasn’t even begun his initial walkthrough of the hotel!

Anthony’s next stop on his quest to save the hotel industry lands him at the The Curve Hotel in Palm Springs, CA. Just a 2-hour drive from Los Angeles, Palm Springs, “Playground of the Stars,” is known for its abundant sunshine, relaxing atmosphere and ultra-modern hotels.
In recent years, dozens of small boutique hotels have opened in Palm Springs, competing with one another to recapture that swank 50s vibe. The Curve Hotel’s owners, bought the 150-room property back in 2008 when it was still a 1-star budget roadside motel and they have recently decided to turn it into a boutique hotel to cash in on the craze. Unfortunately, their decision to upgrade hasn’t worked out so far, and the owners have seen a significant drop in occupancy.
As soon as Anthony drives into the parking lot, he realizes that The Curve hotel is in the midst of an identity crisis – is it a boutique hotel, or is it a travel lodge?
Will Anthony be able to help the hotel’s owners turn things around before they get left in the dust by the competition? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight at 10|9c.
