Hotel Assassination is the first assassination mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Franklin Clinton by Lester Crest.


Lester orders Franklin to kill Brett Lowrey, CEO of Bilkington Research, while Lowrey is leaving the Von Crastenburg Hotel in Richman. Lester suggests two ways in which this can be accomplished: by shooting Lowrey with a sniper rifle or by destroying Lowrey's car (with Lowrey inside) with a sticky bomb. Regardless of how the player chooses to kill the target, once Lowrey is dead, Franklin must escape the scene and any resulting wanted level. Once this is accomplished, the mission ends.

  • Wait for the target appear.
  • Assassinate the target.
  • Leave the area.
  • Lose the cops. (Only if you have been spotted)

Public Liberty Online Newsaper

"The Betta Pharmaceuticals share price is on the rise, following the news that Brett Lowrey, CEO of Bilkinton Research - the company behind the new erectile dysfunction wonder drug Priapol - has been murdered in Los Santos. Mr. Lowrey's business practices had come under scrutiny in recent days following widespread reports of heart attacks from Priapol users and accusations that Bilkinton had paid off the FDA. The LSPD has said that a full investigation into his death will be underway within hours.


The reward is $9,000. The player now owns a new safehouse in Vinewood Hills, the 3671 Whispymound Drive, Franklin's previous safehouse [which he shares with his aunt] is turned into a 'center for women' by Denise Clinton, and the interior and garage are made inaccessible to the player

Stock Tip

Before starting this mission, the player may want to invest in Betta Pharmaceuticals on the BAWSAQ stock exchange with all characters. After the mission starts, the player can still invest with Franklin but will not be able to do so with Michael or Trevor until after the mission is complete. The player will still be able to invest after completing the mission but the stock will have already started to rise, limiting the amount of profit Michael and Trevor can earn. Wait until the stock has hit its highest point before selling.


  • Any cars parked in the Franklin's previous safehouse will be lost so storing them in a separate garage will be beneficial. If the player has only one vehicle parked in their garage then it is best to use it as the getaway vehicle for the mission and driving it into Franklin's new garage.
  • Besides the news about Lowrey's death, theres also a news article from Daily Globe about a lawsuit against Redwood Cigarettes. This is a foreshadowing of the events of the next assassination mission.
  • The player needs to be careful on where they escape because if the player is careless Franklin might end up going to the wrong exit thus receiving 2 wanted levels.
  • Franklin can take the FIB Granger if he chooses to snipe the target. Since it's a police vehicle, you'll need to put it into your new Garage.
