The elegant St. Gregory Hotel in San Francisco is the setting for a string of distinct plots, usually romantic, often involving famous guest stars for an episode or two.

Bette Davis starred as Mrs. Laura Trent, owner of San Francisco's St. Gregory Hotel. She fell ill and was hospitalized early into the show's first season. Anne Baxter (Davis' nemesis Eve Harrington in All About Eve (1950)) took over the hotel as Victoria Cabot, Mrs. Trent's sister-in-law. After Davis recovered, the show's producers asked her to resume her role but she wasn't happy with the scripts she was sent so she turned them down.

Love Boat meets Melrose meets The Golden Palace! I have never seen so much drama in a Hotel in my life!! A man inherits a hotel full of celebs, love, & problems. This show apparently had a 5 year run but I can't say that I watched it up until the end. The first 3 seasons were great! This is one of those TVLAND must-sees! Like most soap-type of shows, they throw the bait & when you go for it, they pull you in. 1-10 (8)
