Nucky Thompson and his long suffering butler entered the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Chicago to inquire about the presidential suite Nucky wanted. The hotel manager said that the mayor had requested it whereupon Nucky proffered the manager some very large bills, saying that he felt that this would convince him to open the suite for himself and his butler. The manager raised his eyebrows and pasted a wide smile on his face as he turned to the clerk at the desk and snapping his fingers, demanded the suite's keys.

Margaret had a room with her two very young children in the same hotel at the time.'..
