California Suite

In Visitor from New York, Hannah Warren is a Manhattan workaholic who flies to Los Angeles to retrieve her teenaged daughter Jenny after she leaves home to live with her successful screenwriter father William. The bickering divorced couple is forced to come to terms.

Middle-aged businessman Marvin Michaels is the Visitor from Philadelphia, who awakens to discover a drunken prostitute unconscious in his bed. With his wife Millie on her way up to the suite, he must conceal all traces of his uncharacteristic indiscretion..

The Visitors from London are British actress Diana Nichols, a first-time nominee for the Academy Award for Best Actress, and her husband Sidney, once-closeted, who increasingly has become indiscreet about his sexual orientation. An Oscar could jumpstart her faltering career, although Diana knows she doesn't have a chance. As she prepares for her moment in the spotlight, her mood fluctuates from hope to panic to despair..

The Visitors from Chicago are two affluent couples who are best friends. Stu Franklyn and his wife Gert and Mort Hollender and his wife Beth are taking a much-needed vacation together. Things begin to unravel quickly when Beth is hurt during a mixed doubles tennis match and Mort accuses Stu of having caused her injury by lobbing the ball.
