Reality TV host Anthony Melchiorri spends his workdays circling the country and globe, on a mission to help ailing hotels and their owners resurrect themselves on the Travel Channel series "Hotel Impossible. " When the hotel fixer visited Baltimore back in the spring, he found the Abacrombie Inn - a bed-and-breakfast in the city's Mount Vernon neighborhood - hardly lived up to the "charm" in Charm City. "I couldn't believe some of the things I saw," said Melchiorri, who has 25 years of experience leading top hotels such as the famed Algonquin in New York City.

The cuisine and restaurants of Baltimore are getting another turn in the national spotlight. The March 25 episode of "Bizarre Foods America with Andrew Zimmern" features Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay. The last time Baltimore was the subject of a Travel Channel food show was in July 2009, when Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" took viewers into a gritty side of the city. Not all Baltimoreans were pleased with how the city came across. Zimmern's affable style is different from Bourdain's, but don't expect a chamber of commerce-style slide show.

Let's be honest. In this economy, very few people are thinking of blowing big bucks on a lavish vacation or even little bucks on a weekend in Lancaster, Pa. But we still want to get away, so we'll have to figure out something. It would be wonderful to travel for free, but that's not going to happen. Sure, if you work for an airline, you can fly to places for free, or if you have a job that requires a lot of travel, then your boss picks up the tab. So what are the rest of us to do? Luckily, there are travel deals to be had, but you'll still have to spend money to save money.
