Two hyperactive blond teen twins caused chaos at a stuffy Boston hotel in this slapstick series. Carey, their divorced mom, was the headline singer at the Hotel Tipton’s swank lounge and as part of her contract they got to live in a twenty-third-floor suite (hence the title) and make use of the pool, game room and room service. Zack (Dylan Sprouse) was usually the instigator of their schemes and Cody (Cole Sprouse) the smarter one who bailed them out. Frequent foils included London Tipton (Brenda Song), the rich, stuck-up daughter of the hotel owner; Mr. Marion Eduardo Moseby (Phill Lewis), the fussy manager who vainly tried to keep order; Arwin Q. Hawkhauser (Brian Stepanek), the hotel handyman with a crush on Carey; and Estaben Ramirez (Adrian R’Mante), the bumbling bellhop who called Zack and Cody ‘little blond peoples’. Maddie Fitzpatrick (AshleyTisdale
) was the smart, outspoken teenage clerk at the candy counter who sometimes babysat Zack and Cody and on whom Zack had a crush. Other settings included Zack and Cody’s school, Bauckner Middle School, wherer they interacted with students and faculty and Maddie and London’s Catholic School, Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrow.
