Jose Jimenez (Bill Dana) is a Latin American immigrant who works as a bellhop at the Park Central Hotel. He also lived in a special bachelor section of the hotel. His biggest obstacles were another bellhop by the name of Eddie (Gary Crosby), hotel manager Phillips (Jonathan Harris), and hotel detective Glick (Don Adams). The show was a spin-off of Make Room for Daddy
as Dana had originated the character of Jose on that series. Crosby left the series after its first season and was replaced by Maggie Peterson as Susie, a waitress in the hotel's coffee shop. Despite sharp writing which provided more than a few laughs the show was up against the popular and long-running Ed Sullivan Show
on CBS and found itself on the cancellation floor after a year and a half on the air and 42 episodes.
