"You listen to me Isaac - listen, dick. It's not my fault you got robbed. Not my fault! I had nothing to do with it. Nothing!"
Ray Boccino

Late Checkout is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given by Ray Boccino to Niko Bellic.

Description

Ray has lost his money, his diamonds, and his temper. Niko finds him in the Italian Restaurant, arguing with Isaac over the phone. He throws the phone at a waiter and demands that Niko go kill him at the Majestic Hotel where Isaac is staying at. Niko arrives at the hotel, fights his way through a number of guards, kills Isaac and his two associates (one of them can be spared), and escapes the hotel. After this, Niko refuses to do any more work for Ray.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission, the player must:

Enemies

Walkthrough

Go to the Majestic Hotel in Lower Middle Park. There are two main ways that Niko can get to the penthouse: by elevator at the lobby, or by window cleaning elevator behind the hotel.

By lobby's elevator:

In the lobby, face the game camera to the right, and Niko will see the elevators, press the button and move in the elevator will bring him to the 30th floor. There are roughly 25 men between the target and Niko and the other two targets are on different levels of the penthouse. Fight the way through Isaac's muscle.

The first target will be in the kitchen, Niko has a chance to spare or eliminate him. There's a health pack in there too so pick it up if the health bar is low.

Go up a flight of stairs to find Isaac himself in his bedroom. Once reaching the room, he'll be sending his girl out. Eliminate the girl does not affect the mission. Get into the room, kill him. If Niko kills him with a pistol, and an execution scene will occur.

The third target and some more hit men will be on the roof. It is a bit hard to fight because there's not much good cover at the rooftop greenhouse. The best and easiest way is to use shoot at the nearby propane tank, causing the last needed target to blow up and fall down the building.

By window cleaning platform

Behind the Majestic Hotel, there is a cleaning lift in the alley. Niko can go and ride it up to the roof and work this way down through the penthouse suite. This avoids the assault of a number of bodyguards on the floor below. It is possible to make a similar trick by flying a helicopter or taking a helicopter ride from Brucie, and then land on here to proceed with the mission.

Upon climbing to the roof, the dealer and a few gunmen are off to the right as the player reaches the top of the staircase. Look for a propane canister attached to a barbecue grill across the pool. If the propane tank is shot, the explosion will blow another diamond dealer right off the Majestic roof. Also, be sure not to miss the Body Armor in the corner of the roof near the glass enclosure if the armor bar is low enough.

Finish them off and escape the hotel as there is a two star wanted level attained. One way is to flee to the roof and find the window cleaning elevator. However, there will always be a police car waiting at the exit of the alleyway. Another way is go back to the elevator at 30F and leave the hotel via the front door. There will still be Jewish mobsters trying to prevent Niko's escape, and no mission-spawned cops wait outside. Either method three Jewish Mob gangbangers will make an assault on Niko during the getaway.

After leaving the hotel, this mission is completed.

However, beware, just after the mission completion, Ray Boccino will call Niko with a long conversation. If Niko answers the call on foot without evading the wanted level, it will make him unable to run, making it harder to escape the cops unless the player is escaping with a vehicle.

After this mission, Niko will tell Ray that he will no longer be his cleaning guy. He will still say this even if the mission Weekend at Florian's hasn't been completed yet.

Aftermath

Weazel News (Radio)

"A party has ended in gunfire."

Jenny Acorn: "Guests at the fancy Majestic Hotel on Middle Park were disturbed by a shootout. Diamond dealer Isaac Roth and several business associates were found dead in the penthouse. Mr. Roth had previously been accused of importing illegal "conflict" diamonds while police had also been investigating Roth's links to the mob. Now, they're searching for his killer."

Liberty Tree Newspaper

Deaths

  • Isaac Roth - Killed by Niko for threatening Ray Boccino.
  • Isaac's associate - Killed by Niko.
  • Mob soldiers guarding Isaac Roth - Killed by Niko for blocking his way to Isaac.
  • Unnamed Jewish Mobster (optional) - Can be killed or spared by Niko.
  • Isaac's girlfriend (optional) - Can be killed by Niko as she's running out of Isaac's room.

Trivia

  • The name is somewhat ironic, as the diamond dealers die before they checkout (so it is rather an early one).
  • Ray's answering machine says "this Badger cellphone is turned off", yet when he is talking to Isaac, Ray has a Whiz Wireless cellphone. It could be possible that Ray owns two phones.
  • Before Niko get close to Isaac's room, Isaac is sleeping and his girl stands beside him.
  • If Niko somehow pushes Isaac onto the stairs, he will die instantly.
  • If spared, the girl will run down the stairs and through the penthouse until exiting. She will not leave the floor that the penthouse is on, as she simply stops moving once reaching the room with the doors leading to the staircase.
  • Blowing up the fat Jewish mobster that begs with mercy with a grenade will also blow Isaac's girlfriend out of his room. However, she will not move until Niko starts moving up the stairs.
  • After killing Isaac Roth, go back to the elevator and go down with it. The police will still wait at the place where the window cleaner is.
  • There is no window cleaning platform behind the hotel before and after this mission.
  • A picture inside of the penthouse suite appears to be Jimmy Pegorino's home.
