Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that since this racy British drama follows the wealthy, self-indulgent patrons of a fictional five-star London hotel, topics like drug use, drinking, prostitution, and extramarital affairs are common. What's more, because plenty of scenes focus on the staff's efforts to promote their guests' lavish lifestyles -- all in order to increase profits and tips -- the show glorifies greed. Strong language (including "s--t"), prevalent sexual content (including brief partial nudity, with short glimpses of breasts), and mature issues like suicide and gun violence are typical fare. Bottom line? It's a guilty pleasure waiting to happen ... for grown ups.

Sexual Content

Implications abound, ranging from the presence of adult toys (a bare-breasted blow-up doll, for example) to sex sounds heard through a hotel room door. Nudity is mostly limited to shots of naked women from behind, with brief glimpses of their breasts. There's plenty of kissing, and prostitution is common in many episodes.


Violent events like suicide, shootings, and fistfights occasionally play a role in the plot.


"Bitch," "ass," and "s--t" are common.

Social Behavior

Most characters don't have many morals to speak of. Staff members demonstrate a fair amount of greed in their efforts to get guests to spend a lot and give big tips. Characters have affairs, use drugs, hire prostitutes, and engage in various other unhealthy activities.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking, smoking, and drug use are common among both hotel guests and staffers.
