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. Victoria Cabot runs the hotel for absent owner Laura Trent (Bette Davis, seen only in the opening episode), until Cabot dies halfway through the series, when manager Peter McDermott takes over and makes Christine the new manager.

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.

Hotel was a pretty good show. I never would have heard of it but my
aunt has it on old VHS tapes and she gave it to my mom and we watched
it together last summer. I really liked the character of Heidi. The
show was not so well produced as other shows like this you might see
today but that is not exactly surprising when you realize that this
show was on in 1983! I see that the show was on for like five years
according to IMDb here but I only saw about ten or twelve episodes
total because that is all we had on those tapes, so I guess I will have
to wait to see the rest until someday when this is rebroadcast again on
television or it comes out on DVD or something.
