Angel's New York Hotel
A. It's an actual hotel, but 175 miles from New York.
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. There are two "New York" hotels shown in this episode.
The first was the luxury hotel called "Gramercy Suites", where Angela and Molly spoke with the desk clerk to see if Matt Caldwell had actually stayed there.
The second was this hotel, where the two women went so that Angela could attend a police conference on missing persons. It's here that they listened to Miami's's Angel Batista give a lecture on solving difficult cases, and it's here that Angela spoke with Angel afterwards, and was alerted to the fact that Jim Lindsay and his son, Harrison might not be who they seem to be.
In real life, this is the AC Hotel by Marriott, at 125 Front Street, In Worcester, Massachusetts.
Most of the scenes in this season were shot in
small towns and rural areas on the west side of the state of
Massachusetts. But since these "New York" scenes called for Angela to
visit Manhattan, they obviously needed locations that could pass for New
York City, and that meant heading east, towards the more populous
cities of Massachusetts.
For the first luxury hotel, they went to the state's capitol and largest city, Boston. But for this second hotel, they went to Massachusetts' second largest city, Worcester.
Worcester (pronounced "Wuhst'-er" or
"Woos'-tuh") is located near the center of the state, about 40 miles
west of Boston, and over 50 miles southeast of Shelburne Falls (a.k.a. Iron Lake)
They filmed here on May 11, 2021.

( It's hard to miss that fireplace. )
This isn't the only location where they filmed in Worcester.
They also shot at a residential home, which ended up as Jasper Hodge's house.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
I had been following the local press since I first learned that Dexter was going to be filming in Massachusetts, so I had no problem adding this hotel to my list of locations to look for once the show aired. Then, it was just a matter of matching what I saw on TV with images of the hotel found on the Internet.
