The hotel is located in northwest Fort Staunton, Staunton Island, around a pedestrians-only mall area and just outside the disused subway tunnel. Although the hotel is inaccessible and plays no role in the storyline, the hotel's exterior is shown to be vast and features a luxurious design, complete with several balconies.
The hotel is destroyed alongside the rest of the Fort Staunton neighborhood in Bringing The House Down, although it's ruins will still stand. Damage done to the building includes several piles of rubble surrounding the exterior, the signage of the building tilting to the sides, and the entrance being destroyed.
- "Forte" is an Italian term that refers to loud music. It may also refer to a strong point of someone or something, referencing the hotel's luxurious design.
