Based on Arthur Hailey's popular novel and the 1967 film of the same name, ABC's "Hotel" (from super-producer Aaron Spelling and Douglas S. Cramer) was basically a land-based Love Boat set at San Francisco's opulent St. Gregory Hotel (utilizing exterior shots and modeled interiors of real life Fairmont Hotel San Francisco) featuring a combo of guest stars along with a regular cast in intertwined stories of primetime soap love, lust and drama (and occasional comedy).

Starring as the St. Gregory Hotel staff was ever-dapper James Brolin (Pensacola: Wings of Gold, Marcus Welby, M.D.) as Peter McDermott, the manager; gorgeous Connie Sellecca (The Greatest American Hero) as Christine Francis, the assistant manager and eventual love interest for Peter; Shea Farrell as Mark Danning, director of guest relations; Nathan Cook as Billy Griffin, ex-con turned chief of security; Michael Spound and Heidi Bohay as newlyweds Dave and Megan Kendall, a bellhop and desk clerk respectively (who themselves would marry in 1988); plus lovely Shari Belafonte (daughter of Harry Belafonte) as Julie Gillette, manager of hotel information. Look for legendary screen star Bette Davis in her first TV series role (pilot only) as St. Gregory owner Laura Trent who, due to illness, was replaced thereafter by her All About Eve co-star Anne Baxter who took over as her sister-in-law, Victoria Cabot.

While I understand the comparison to Love Boat because of the stars who permeated the show, that's where the similarities end. This series was a drama which often featured suspense. If you've never seen it I highly recommend it. Good acting and writing.

At last the 1983 series are released in dvd.
Hotel's first season is available in july with the pilot telefilm and all 22 episodes of the first season included in this set.
Hotel run for 5 seasons until 1988 which means there are 4 more seasons to be released SO IF U WANT THIS GEM BUY THIS FIRST SEASON.
As simple as that. Hotel had a lot of similarities with "the love boat" only it's own stories were set in a hotel. not in a boat.
Anyways it's great to have this series on dvd and still i wait for FALCON CREST TO BE RELEASED.

This show is great. Was great. Well, great for a mid 80s TV show. It is sort of a mix between Dynasty, Love Boat, and Heart to Heart or something. I used to watch this in re-runs when I was a teenager and seeing it again after all these years has been lots of fun. The stories are interesting, the characters likable and the fashion...seeing all that sparkly, Halston-inspired 80s fashion that is just starting to be in again is amazing. The stories, like i said, are interesting, but alas only if real life played out like this. I mean here you have a bunch of really good people running this place and they treat others and each other with so much humanity. For example, they let a stranded artist stay in the Presidential Suite free of charge and the assistant to the manager gets her job (without a degree and experience) by sneaking into the office and telling 200 applicants that there wont be any interviews; the hotel owner personally backs up a hooker who has been raped and brings charges against a financial giant...it just goes on and you think to yourself, wow, this isnt even real; until you realize that it could be and how much of a better place this world could be if people were nice to each other and said yes and gave you opportunities etc.

Today, or in real life, you get turned down for the job even if you do have the qualifications and if you pull off what Connie Sellecca did then you will probably not only not get hired but also sued; no one let's you stay even in the broom closet for one night for free, much less the Presidential suite and no business owner risks his business and reputation to stand up for the rights of a prostitute. But in this TV show, they do...and that's what it's about: it's sort of like Fantasy Island meets Love Boat in a Hotel.

Format: DVD
Originally crafted by producer Aaron Spelling as a land-bound companion to "The Love Boat", HOTEL operated in much the same way, with a parade of celebrity guest stars checking in, week after week, for glittery drama at the fictional St. Gregory Hotel in the heart of San Francisco.

Unlike "The Love Boat", though, the regular cast members took prominent roles in the storylines; and the show's later timeslot afforded writers the opportunity to give a darker, far more serious edge to the material. James Brolin starred as the St. Gregory's affable manager Peter McDermott; Connie Sellecca is his lovely assistant Christine Francis. The regular "staff" includes Shea Farrell, Heidi Bohay, Michael Spound, Shari Belafonte and Nathan Cook.

In the original movie-length pilot episode, Bette Davis added gravitas to the proceedings, playing the St. Gregory's owner, Mrs Laura Trent. Davis was to continue as part of the cast for the main series, but after suffering a severe stroke, she was replaced (quite ironically) by her dear friend and "All About Eve" co-star Anne Baxter. Baxter plays Trent's sister-in-law Victoria Cabot, but for all intents and purposes the roles are interchangeable. Baxter's cultured, warm Mrs Cabot is the glue that holds the early seasons together (Baxter sadly passed away during production on the third season).

Originally following "Dynasty", HOTEL was a solid ratings winner. It's fun to see some stars from "Dynasty" checking into the St. Gregory (Emma Samms, Heather Locklear, Bo Hopkins and Lloyd Bochner all feature in the debut season, not to mention "Dallas" favourites Charlene Tilton, Steve Kanaly and Ken Kercheval!).

No, it does not have subtitles that are selectable from the menu, if that's what you're asking. However, it does have closed-captioning.
