As Playa, Johnny Gat and Pierce plan their next move to stop The Ronin, Dane Vogel, the CEO of Ultor, sets foot inside Saints Hideout to tell the 3rd Street Saints that the relationship between Ultor and The Ronin is over. Vogel starts an alliance with the 3rd Street Saints by informing them where Kazuo and Shogo Akuji are hiding out. Playa and Gat leave for the hotel, though not without Pierce staying behind to watch over Vogel in case it's a trap.
Playa and Gat return after destroying the hotel (although the Akujis are not there at the time) and allow Vogel to leave. Just as he does, however, Playa pulls him to one side and asks why Ultor went to The Ronin and not the 3rd Street Saints; Vogel simply replies, "You were in a coma and we couldn't find Julius... timing is everything". Among the wreckage of the hotel, a shamed Kazuo notes to Shogo how his son continues to disappoint him.
The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the Mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.
- Head to the Ronin hotel
- Kill the Ronin on the ground floor
- Get to the elevator
Take an elevator up and Gat ceases being a Homie. A few 3rd Street Saints members can be found near the hotel who can be recruited.
- Place the bombs one floor at a time
Once at the top, seven bombs must be set in different areas and floors of the hotel. After setting the first bomb, a four minute timer starts counting down. Run from marker to marker, setting the bombs and killing any enemies in the way.
- Move to the next floor
On the final floor, be aware of a Ronin equipped with an RPG Launcher near the marker.
- Head to the suite and kill the Ronin Lieutenants
After the seventh bomb has been planted, head inside the suite nearby and kill the six Ronin lieutenants.
- Climb the rail and base jump into the atrium
Jump the rail outside the suite and BASE jump down to the atrium. If no fall damage has been unlocked in the Base Jumping Diversion, it is possible to simply fall down to the atrium without opening the parachute.
- Dex's fate is revealed in this mission; Dane Vogel offered him a job at Ultor prior to the events of Saints Row 2. More information can be found on him while starting the bonus mission "Revelation".
- The game data files define an extra section to this mission; originally the player would have had to visit an arms dealer to buy the bombs used in the hotel. This arms dealer had a unique "Arms Dealer" variant of the Phoenix vehicle.
- As with the previous mission, "Visiting Hours", the map can be confusing during this mission as it shows enemies on all floors of the hotel rather than just those on the current floor, thus showing enemies that aren't there.
