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.

Mission objectives

  • Go to the hotel.
  • Assassinate the target. (When the target leaves the hotel)
  • Leave the area.

Gold Medal Objectives

  • Sniper Boy - Kill the target using a Sniper Rifle


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 seperate 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.
