Hotel Harrison is a small, Spanish-style lodge decorated in pink stucco in the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories renditions Vice City.

Description

Located in southern Washington Beach, is GTA Vice City rendition of the building is wedged right up to Washington Mall, and is located directly across the road from 1102 Washington Street. The building also holds the office of attorney Ken Rosenberg, the namesake of the law firm K. Rosenberg & Co., in GTA Vice City; the player—incarnated as the protagonist, Tommy Vercetti, starts out in the game at an alleyway next to the building, and makes numerous visits to the building solely to meet his associate Rosenberg. A Faggio is constantly parked in the alleyway in GTA Vice City, and a random car also spawns on the west side of the building.

The building's textures are heavily derivative of the real-life two-storey Hotel Harrison at 411 Washington Avenue in South Beach, Miami, circa the period the GTA Vice City was produced (around 2002) (the building's has since been repainted); the main entrance also sports the signage for the Red Square restaurant, which also based itself within the building in real-life. The structural design of the building is otherwise radically different.
