The Celebrity Apprentice
Aug 17 2012, 11:33 AM by Christine Montgomery
I love Gordon Ramsay for many reasons: his unapologetic nature, his "creative grasp" of the English language, and the fact that he can make burning a grilled cheese sound as consequential as burning down the Sistine Chapel. Kitchen Nightmares has always made me dream of owning my own horrible restaurant so Ramsay can come fix it. In his new series Hotel Hell, Ramsay has gone back to his roots in the hotel business. He's on a mission to guide lost hotel owners with failing businesses back to the basics and save their hotels from disaster.
In the first episode of Hotel Hell, it was Ramsay vs. the Juniper Hill Inn, a gorgeous yet horribly pretentious heritage inn whose owners treated the staff as if they were the servants of a private mansion. The concierge went weeks without receiving paychecks while watching as the owners invited friends to the hotel to sip vintage wines and peruse fine art in their suite bedrooms for free. Paying guests felt as if they were interrupting a private party and the Juniper Hill Inn was quickly digging itself into bankruptcy.
Nearly everyone can relate to having a horrible hospitality experience. Have you ever visited or worked at a hotel that made you squeamish and want to share your story? Without naming names (let's play fair, guys!), tells us about your own descent into hotel hell in the comments section below. We'll post the best stories on GlobalTV.com.
