The Cliff's Edge Hotel is a pre-War tourist trap on the Island, just north of Acadia in Fallout 4. Among the rubble there is the hidden entrance to Vault 118, where the Sole Survivor can be directed to during the Brain Dead quest.
Primarily intended as a resort hotel for tourists coming the island, the location was deemed suitable for Vault-Tec's purposes, and Vault 118 was subsequently built underneath the establishment, once intended for an experiment regarding class warfare. The Vault was sealed before the lower rungs of the social ladder could be admitted, and the luxurious hotel fell into disrepair and eventually became a hive for feral ghouls, as the sealed away inhabitants descended into madness.
The hotel consists of four floors and a basement, the latter of which can be accessed via the only working elevator, guarded by ceiling-mounted turret, and descends into Vault 118. At the main reception desk on the ground floor, there is a working terminal that can be accessed to read a pre-War entry.
On the third floor is the restaurant, where a makeshift camp can be found, consisting of a tent, a sleeping bag, a campfire, and the dead corpse of a trapper, whose traps can be found all across the area.
Outside of the hotel is the main, yet inaccessible entrance to the Vault, where a car can be seen parked on top of the cog-like elevator entrance, serving as a traffic rotary in its current and previous state.

- The trapper's note can be found within the dead trapper's camp on the restaurant level.
- On the bottom floor in a storage closet, is a Vault-Tec lunchbox.
It is possible to get stuck inside the elevator permanently when leaving the Vault level to return to the hotel, forcing one to reload a previous save. [verified]
