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.

Have you ever wanted to take a vacation and stay where one of your favorite movies was filmed? If Anthony can help renovate and rebrand the Triangle T Ranch in Dragoon, AZ, site of the 1957 Glenn Ford flick 3:10 to Yuma, that dream could become reality.
However, Anthony is not alone in his quest to restore the Triangle T Ranch to its former glory. Special guest interior designer, Casey Noble from HGTV, has taken time out of her busy schedule to help renovate the lobby and guest rooms of the Arizona-based resort.
After it takes Anthony over 15 minutes to find what he thinks is the lobby, he discovers that the trailer is an abandoned mess with trash and broken phones lying on the counter. As he walks back to his car, he notices broken lampposts, cobwebs, trash littered on the ground and rancid port-o-potties. Needless to say, the Triangle T Ranch is in very poor shape upon Anthony’s arrival and in serious danger of going under.
Will Anthony and Casey be able to return the Triangle T back to prominence? Can sales and marketing expert Cindy Lew rebrand the entire resort before the ranch tanks? Find out on an all-new episode of Hotel Impossible, tonight @ 10|9c.
