"There is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction..." - Andrew Ryan

Signs for the hotel can be seen in high-class areas around the city. Jack first spots a neon sign outside the Welcome Center as his Bathysphere descends from the Lighthouse. Later on in Olympus Heights, marquees are seen in the tram tunnels that connect Athena's Glory and Mercury Suites with the Central Square Bistro.

The hotel's sign is also seen through windows in The 'I' in Team. If the protagonist looks to the right upon first spawning outside the entrance to the Rapture Firing Range, a sign for the Monseñor is visible on the side of a building in the distance. It can be seen at a better angle from the glass tunnel connecting the firing range with the plate room.
