When Carrie Martin lands a job as the headlining singer at the classy Tipton Hotel in Boston, she and her twins, Zack and Cody Martin, permanently move into one of the hotel room suites.
The boys take full advantage of their new home and are indeed living the "suite life" as they fully utilize everything the hotel has to offer, including room service, the game room, and of course the hotel pool. They always seem to be getting on the nerves of Mr. Moseby, the hotel manager, who thinks of them as the hotel pests.
Maddie Fitzpatrick runs the gift shop candy counter and also occasionally baby sits the troublesome twins, during which time she always seems to be getting roped into their hair-brained schemes.
Finally, the heiress to the hotel, London Tipton lives in a hotel suite as well as her father is always away on business. She is incredibly rich and spoiled, and to be honest, she's not the brightest young woman.
The twins also meet a lot of other interesting characters in the hotel such as Esteban the bellboy, Muriel the lazy housekeeper, and Arwin the inventor/janitor of the hotel.
Here I Am
Written by John Adair and Steve Hampton & Performed by Loren Ellis and The Drew Davis Band
Here I am in your life,
Here you are in mine
Guess we have a suite life, most of the time.
You and me, we've got the world to see,
So come on down.
Just me and you know what to do,
so come on down.
It's you and me, me and you,
We've got the whole place to ourselves.
You and me, we got it all for free, so come on down.
This is the suite life.
We've got a suite life.

The first show to do so was That's So Raven because of popularity Kim Possible followed.
The news of a visit from Mr. Tipton gets the employees excited (and reminiscing) about their good deeds as to who deserves a possible big bonus…when it is determined that Mr. Tipton is in a bad mood, they realize one of them is about to be fired…all fingers point to Carey because of the boys mishaps at the hotel.
