Ambitious receptionist Charlie is interviewed by head honcho Rebecca for the position of deputy manager - and finds he has to persuade a visiting rock band to spend a small fortune during their stay.

Further details

Charlie introduces us to the world of Hotel Babylon - a world of fantasy and indulgence, where you can be whatever you want to be, provided you have the cash to pay for it.

Charlie is interviewed by Rebecca for the job of Deputy Manager, but arch rival Anna emerges as a clever and formidable opponent.

To prove his worth, Charlie must manipulate a world-famous rock band into spending as much money as possible - which is proving unusually tricky.

A suspicious limo driver, Pete, adds to his worries, claiming to know Charlie - does he have something to conceal?

Meanwhile, Rebecca is mysteriously hiding out at the hotel and someone clearly has it in for her.
