The Suite Life of Zack & Cody is a Disney Channel Original Series that premiered on March 18, 2005. The series follows Carey Martin's (Kim Rhodes) twin sons Zack and Cody Martin (Dylan and Cole Sprouse) when they move into the Boston Tipton Hotel. They meet the manager, Mr. Moseby (Phill Lewis), heiress London Tipton (Brenda Song), and candy-counter girl Maddie Fitzpatrick (Ashley Tisdale) as they attempt to live a normal life in the anarchic hotel.

Story

After several years on the road, Carey Martin finally lands a long-term job singing in the lounge at the Boston Tipton Hotel, and gets her own room, suite 2330, to stay in. She moves in with her twin boys, and it doesn't take them long until everyone in the hotel knows them as troublemakers.

The series takes place mostly in the hotel, but the characters go to school, to the mall, to Maddie's house and the nearby Fenway Park, and even to the S.S. Tipton.

Theme song and opening sequence

The show's theme song, "Here I Am", was written by John Adair and Steve Hampton, known also for writing the themes to Disney Channel series Phil of the Future and Wizards of Waverly Place, as well as the theme for the ABC Kids series Power Rangers: RPM. The music was composed by Gary Scott and is performed by singer Loren Ellis and the Drew Davis Band.

The opening sequence to the show begins with a shot of the Tipton Hotel's ground floor exterior, which then zooms to a window on what is presumed to the twenty-third floor of the hotel, where Zack and Cody's suite is, which then displays footage from various episodes that changes with each season. Five of the clips feature a different cast member. The sequence closes with the show's title logo.

Setting

Aside from the Tipton Hotel itself, several other locations are also seen during the series.
