TV show description:
After their mother, Carey (Kim Rhodes), is hired to sing in the lounge of one of Boston’s most upscale hotels, twin brothers Zack and Cody Martin (Dylan and Cole Sprouse) take up residence in one of the hotel’s suites.
Also living at the hotel is Paris Hilton-esque London Tipton (Brenda Song), the daughter of the elegant high-rise’s owner. Working at The Tipton Hotel are London’s best friend, candy counter girl Maddie Fitzpatrick (Ashley Tisdale), and the hotel’s manger, Mr. Marion Moseby (Phill Lewis).
The Tipton Hotel has become Zack and Cody’s home and they treat it as such much to the chagrin of uptight Mr. Moseby. The boys see nothing wrong with inviting their entire school over to the hotel or with rollerblading around guests in the lobby. Carey has her hands full as a single working mom of two mischievous sons and, when she’s at work, Maddie pitches in to help to look after the twins. With a constant stream of guests, Zack, Cody, Maddie, and London are always meeting someone new – whether it’s a celebrity wedding or a visiting Prince. More often than not, they also find themselves in the middle of crazy new situations.
The show has featured guest appearances by Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron, Jesse McCartney, Raven Symone, Tony Hawk, and Miley Cyrus.
