The elegant St. Gregory Hotel in San Francisco is the setting for a string of plots – and every guest has a story to tell! In this pilot episode a call girl (Morgan Fairchild) is beaten and raped by four rich kids, of which the ringleader's father (Lloyd Bochner) is a rich and imperious father. A young singer (Erin Moran) is given her big chance by Mel Tormé. A suffering, sensitive divorcee (Pernell Roberts) helps a woman (Shirley Jones) give her philandering husband a taste of his own medicine. The King of Portugal (Alejandro Rey) checks into the hotel for a rest and leaves with a former hash-slinger (Stephanie Faracy). A man (Jack Gilford) dies of a heart attack during an affair. An overbearing couple (Bill Macy and Lainie Kazan) check in where nothing is ever good enough for her and he just wants to get a good night’s sleep!
