Located at Nickle Street and Columbus Avenue on the northeastern corner of Star Junction, Algonquin, the 15-floor hotel is clearly based on the real-life Plaza Hotel in New York City by design and location. However, The Emissary is noticeably scaled down to adapt to Algonquin's smaller size. Its position on the corner of Middle Park makes it a visible landmark across much of the park and its immediate surroundings.
Based on its rooftop sign, the Emissary is implied to be a 5-star hotel. The building is otherwise not interactive nor accessible.
