As beleaguered manager of the luxurious Majestic Hotel, Robert Grant not only deftly juggles with keeping the hotel in order, but he has to control his troublesome and mischievous sons Brian and Kyle as he prepares for the hotel's upcoming annual gala. Things get complicated when his snobbish boss Mrs. [=Dubrow=], owner of the establishment, shows up with unwelcome news: A ''Le Monde'' travel association undercover as a guest is slated to award a sixth star to the most elite five-star hotels in the world. If Robert does well, he might get promoted and some time off to take his sons on vacation but if the Majestic Hotel doesn't get the sixth star, he loses his job.

Then jewel thief Lord Rutlidge checks in the hotel in hopes of stealing valuables with his specially trained orangutan, Dunston who was forced into a life of crime by his violent owner.

Along with causing mischief while keeping Dunston a secret, Kyle tries to help Dunston out of stealing. Unfortunately, things get much more difficult when Robert catches sight of Dunston and calls the determined but inept animal control officer [=LeFarge=] to kills the orangutan.
