Ainsley's mother has successfully targeted the Hotel Baltimore for a wrecking ball. Hoping to save the building from an untimely demolition, Clifford manages to have it declared an historic landmark....
The very bizarre happenings in the lives of the residents of the seedy Hotel Baltimore. Despite their disparate backgrounds and ethnicities, these neighbors became one anothers' families. George and Gordon were middle-aged gay lovers, Suzy and April were prostitutes, Mr. Morse was a grouchy old man, Jackie was a young tomboy, Mrs. Bellotti was an eccentric woman with a never-seen psychotic son Moose who once glued himself to the ceiling, and Charles was a wise black man. Bill was the hotel's desk clerk, and Clifford its young manager.Written by

This notably groundbreaking and often controversial show featured the first male same-sex couple, George and Gordon(played by Lee Bergere and Henry Calvert) to be depicted on an American television series. See more »
Aside from being a stepping stone to stardom for a then-unknown James Cromwell, the show was witty, progressive and more than a little racy. Revolving around the lives of the "broken-down" living in the equally rickety Hot L (Hotel) Baltimore, the sitcom proved to be too adult/heady for 1975 America, and was cancelled after one season.
