After ripping off a large amount of cocaine supposedly belonging to Jerry Martinez, Lance Vance, confident that him and his brother Victor Vance were finally rich, bought an apartment for himself in Ocean Beach, and a suite in Vice Point for Victor.
The suite is the most extravagant of the safehouses available in the game, far superior to 101 Bayshore Avenue and The Compound safehouses. holding more room to walk around. Features of the hotel suite include two floors, a large window offering a spectacular view of the fairground and Chunder Wheel across the street (you can also fire sniper bullets from here and conditions on the street remain consistent with how they're left when you enter the suite, i.e. parked vehicles remain visible, police presence remains, etc.), and it even has a roof with two helicopter pads, on top of one which you can buy a Little Willie for $5,000. A Bovver '64 Hovercraft can be purchased for $4,500 at the dock behind the safehouse. The garage can store up to three vehicles. When 100% game completion is achieved, the player can use the TV inside to watch all the storyline cutscenes. According to the signage outside, the hotel where the suite is is called the "Midland Hotel".
By the time of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, set two years later, the suite, alongside the entirety of the Midland Hotel, have been demolished and replaced with low-rise apartment blocks, which apparently share the same design as 101 Bayshore Avenue.
- An Empire Building property is located next door to the safehouse; care must be taken not to trigger an enemy attack if Victor hasn't taken over the property yet.
- A glitch in the PS2 version will cause vehicles parked within the garage to occasionally vanish when the garage door opens, making it appear as if you have an empty garage, though the vehicles are still there. This glitch appears to trigger if Victor is involved in a firefight outside the safehouse (such as during a high wanted level scenario).
- Strangely enough, the television on the living room appears to be a LCD/flat-screen television. This is probably an oversight or just coincidental, as flat-screen televisions were not introduced until the early-2000s, well after the events of GTA VCS (and indeed, all 3D Universe games).
- According to the game manual, the Clymenus Suite costs $225,500.
- Many players notice unusual spaciousness when entering the Clymenus Suite. Actually, this is explained by real interior and exterior size difference - relatively, interior is about 1.5 times bigger than exterior. Moreover, there is a mutual substitutability between interior and exterior models when player enters or exits the Clymenus Suite. This may be evidenced by the glitch with clothes pickup floating in the air, which can sometimes occur when player exits to the rooftop with helipad.
