Events in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
After fighting their way through the Nepalese city, Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer arrived at the hotel, which according to Chloe was the highest building for miles. The hotel was filled with guards however, and they did their fair share of fighting on their way up. When they took the elevator, it got jammed and Chloe was trapped inside. Drake then had to find the control room and turn the power back on. Once they reached the top, they spotted the temple they are looking for. They also spotted a helicopter coming towards them. The helicopter attempted to kill them both as they found a way to get out of the hotel.
The hotel is extremely tall and joined to another building at least halfway up by a small bridge. There does not appear to be anyone staying in the hotel however, so it may have fallen into despair. The hotel contains an elevator and stairs and a swimming pool on the roof. The name of the hotel is seen on one of the walls.
- There is a hotel looking building in both multiplayer maps named the Plaza and the Highrise. The Plaza's one has sign reading Hotel Shangri-la while the Highrise is written in a foreign script. Although the Highrise's hotel includes the small bridge, neither are exact copies of the original.
- Shangri-La is another word for Shambhala that Drake uses.
