Hotel Madison was one of the most luxurious and expensive hotels in Midtown, officially owned by Eileen Rockefeller. Due to it's level of luxury and it's central location, the hotel was chosen by Don Emilio Barzini as his personal office. In times of crisis it could also house the Barzini Underboss and other important guests. During the thirties, when times were hard, the Barzini family was forced to open up a sizeable brothel in the hotel to earn money, and the operation was so successfull that it was continued, under the direction of Emilio Barzini, Jr.
Don Barzini's office was located on the top floor behind re-inforced double doors, and the building was defended by twelve heavily armed guards. In order to disguise the nature of the establishment, Barzini passes it off as a legitimately owned and run hotel. Due to the twelve guards that patrolled it, the Hotel was one of the hardest buildings to storm, but Don Barzini was rarely to be found in his office, and most of his day-to-day business was run by brothel manager, Willy Palermino. However, Palermino sold out in the early Fifties, sensing the imminent downfall of the Barzini Family.
