Located across the street from the [[Malibu Club]] to the east, the Vice Point Langer is depicted as a colossal hotel building fronting the beach. The building is used once in GTA Vice City's storyline, being a good spot to take blackmail photos of [[Alex Shrub]] in the mission "[[Martha's Mug Shot]]" by accessing a simple interior: a staircase at the side of the hotel that goes up many floors and a hallway at the end. After completing "Martha's Mug Shot", the hotel will always be accessible but the window is closed. In the PC version, the window remains opened. Other than that it doesn't serve any purpose in either games. In GTA Vice City, the hotel has a non-solid section at the front entrance of the hotel large enough for a helicopter to fit and enter into [[Blue Hell]]. This glitch was fixed in GTA Vice City Stories.

WKChariot-GTAVC-VicePoint

The Vice Point WK Chariot Hotel in the PC version of GTA Vice City. The glitched sign on top of the building, showing only the "ot Hotel" portion of the name, was intended to be used in the PlayStation 2 version to display the "Langer" text from the original "Vice Point Langer" sign.

The Vice Point Langer, as known as the WK Chariot Hotel and Van Khoff on the Beach, is 30-story hotel featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Located in Vice Point, Vice Beach, Vice City. The hotel's name differs between the original PlayStation 2 version and the PC version, with the PS2 version being known as Vice Point Langer, while the PC version has been renamed as the WK Chariot Hotel, the WK Chariot name being an obvious spoof of JW Marriot's, also a hotel and lodging company. The hotel received a third renaming when it is once again featured in GTA Vice City Stories, where it is known as Van Khoff on the Beach.

Due to the differences in name, the WK Chariot brand may or may not imply it is a hotel chain, as another smaller hotel in Ocean Beach, also in Vice Beach, bears the "WK Chariot" name in both versions of GTA Vice City.

HotelsEdit

Vice PointEdit

Located across the street from the Malibu Club to the east, the Vice Point Langer is depicted as a colossal hotel building fronting the beach. The building is used once in GTA Vice City's storyline, being a good spot to take blackmail photos of Alex Shrub in the mission "Martha's Mug Shot" by accessing a simple interior: a staircase at the side of the hotel that goes up many floors and a hallway at the end. After completing "Martha's Mug Shot", the hotel will always be accessible but the window is closed. In the PC version, the window remains opened. Other than that it doesn't serve any purpose in either games. In GTA Vice City, the hotel has a non-solid section at the front entrance of the hotel large enough for a helicopter to fit and enter into Blue Hell. This glitch was fixed in GTA Vice City Stories.

In GTA Vice City Stories, the building itself is barely anything different than it's previous depiction. Only that there is a different name, "Van Khoff on the Beach" written on gold plaques instead of above the front entrance, implying the hotel is part of the Vank Hoff Hotel chain, although the spelling is slightly different.

Ocean BeachEdit

The other WK Chariot Hotel is a small, three story Art Deco building located at Ocean Drive in Ocean Beach. It is an almost exact clone of the Parsons Hotel but with a green color instead. Unlike the Vice Point hotel, the Ocean Beach hotel retains the WK Chariot name in both the PS2 version and the PC version. The GTA Vice City Stories rendition lacks the "WK Chariot" name altogether.

TriviaEdit

  • Like the Vank Hoff Hotel name, "Van Khoff" is intended to sound like "wank off", a slang term for masturbation, and in public.
  • At the top level right next to the window a poster reading Don't just jump, hyper jump! is a reference to people who plan to commit suicide.
  • A pattern of lights will light up between 11:00 pm to 12:00 midnight in the form of a male genitalia on the frontal facade, changing into a standard pattern of random lights after. At about every 15 minutes in that hour, you can see that there is a fountain on the top of the building implying the ejaculation.  The pattern also features on Vice City Stories but varies slightly from the original, there is no fountain on the roof but an ejaculation pattern is made with the lights of the top few storeys.
  • Interestingly, if you face the Vice Point Langer/WK Chariot Hotel from the mainland side of the city, it is a completely different building, implying the building was different in the beta.
  • The name WK Chariot Hotel is similar to the real life name hotel, "JW Marriot".
