Dakota Hotel is an Easter egg location in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


Dakota Hotel is a hotel in Vice City, also known by the name of Dakota.

Though the hotel isn't titled in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it still exists in both 1984 and 1986.

It is situated along Ocean Drive in the Ocean Beach region of the Vice Beach. The hotel is inaccessible and doesn't share any part in the storyline of the game, but still serves as an Easter egg location.

The hotel is part of the hotel chains in Vice City that are based on the Colony Hotel in Miami. The Dakota Hotel, in general is a recolored version of the Colon Hotel in Ocean Drive. It has white and red facades, sign that reads "Dakota" twice in place of "Colon Hotel". This sign serves as a distinguishable significance between both Colon and Dakota hotel.

In GTA Vice City, the hotel's sign is glitched and reveals Blue Hell beneath it. However, this is patched on the PS4 version.
