A pre-War resort hotel, Vault 118 is buried beneath Cliff's Edge Hotel, once intended for a classic class warfare experiment. It was sealed before the lower rungs of the social ladder could be admitted, and the luxurious hotel fell into disrepair and became a hive for feral ghouls, as the sealed vault's inhabitants descended into madness.
The hotel has four floors above-ground and also a basement, which can be accessed via the only working elevator and leads to Vault 118. The elevator is guarded by ceiling-mounted turret. The entire hotel is infested with feral ghouls. At the main reception desk on the ground floor, there is a working terminal that can be accessed to read a pre-War entry.
In the third-floor sky view restaurant, there is a makeshift camp with a ruined tent, a sleeping bag, a campfire and the dead corpse of a trapper. It appears they had set up a number of traps and one of the bear traps had "caught" something, the resulting blood smear is shaped like a giant hand.
Outside of the hotel is the main, yet inaccessible entrance to the vault. A car is currently parked on top of the cog-like elevator entrance, serving as a "traffic rotary" in its current and previous state.
