The Infiltration into Presidential Hotel was a failed attempt by Matt Murdock to extract information about the attack on Wilson Fisk.


"You will be confined to these quarters. You'll be monitored at all times. You are allowed no outside contact other than your lawyers. Armed guards will be stationed outside 24/7. You'll be safe here."
Ray Nadeem to Wilson Fisk[src]

Ray Nadeem was assigned by the FBI to interrogate Wilson Fisk in order to extract any useful information about New York City's criminal underworld. Fisk decided to make a deal with him that he could give away the Albanian Syndicate's locations in order to shorten his time in Ryker's Island and drop the charges against Vanessa Marianna.

Nadeem agreed and Fisk gave him lead about high-ranking Albanian member. Nadeem and group of the FBI agent stormed his mansion and managed to arrest multiple Albanians and their associates. While in prison, Fisk paid Jasper Evans to stab him in order to ensure FBI that he is in danger and they decided to transport him to the secured location under FBI's supervision. En route to Presidential Hotel, the convoy with Fisk was ambushed by Albanians in order to take revenge on him. Multiple FBI agents were eliminated but before Albanians could kill Fisk, Benjamin Poindexter managed to kill all attackers.[3]

With multiple casualties, the FBI managed to escort Fisk to the hotel. They tasked multiple agents on the guard and put Fisk under surveillance to closely watch his every move. Once Fisk was inside his house, numerous news reports had now made statements that Fisk had been released from prison.[4]

Following the confrontation in Chris French Cleaners, Matt Murdock heard police and ambulances saying that FBI had released Wilson Fisk out of Ryker's Island. Murdock decided to break into the hotel to investigate Fisk's release and went to Presidential Hotel. He spotted several employees of Millar & Lumming who moved supplies into the hotel through the emergency exit what was guarded by the FBI agent.

Murdock listened to one of the employees who entered the code to the door. He stole employees' uniform and disguise himself, then Murdock, at the second attempt, entered the right code and entered the hotel. Inside, Murdock listened to agents and learned Fisk's location. However, he was confronted by Benjamin Poindexter who asked him for his room key. Murdock pretended that he forgot his key in the car and Poindexter became nervous. He put his hand on the gun and informed Murdock that he cannot let him through without the key. Murdock then decided to leave to avoid a confrontation and left.
