Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, 'Hotel Artemis' follows the Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals.
The hotel is named for the Greek goddess Artemis, who was born in secret to protect her from the wrath of Hera, queen of the gods. Artemis was associated with animals, hunting and the moon and was the twin sister of Apollo, the god of sunlight.
You're the employee, I'm the business.
Nice states that she had shot herself to get into Artemis in order to get close enough to her target, the Wolf King. Except Wolf King was said to be arriving because the bank robbers had mistakenly taken the pen with Wolf King's diamonds from a customer after a change of plans, not knowing what was inside, and they only were going to Artemis because they were wounded in an unplanned shootout. Nice had checked into the Hotel before any of those coincidental actions had taken place.
There is a mid-credits scene.
