You can't open the door to A3, instead, you'll need to find another way inside the room.

There is an assortment of rooms that can be opened and explored in the Grand Colonial Hotel, and A3 is just another one you will want to add to the list. Unfortunately, you can interact with the door, which means you cannot actually get it open. Instead, you are going to need to make your way around the area to the next hallway.

Once in the next hallway, continue down the way until you start to hear that ghostly voice again. When you get closer, you should see a hole in the wall. Climb up the piece of debris beneath the hole and then jump inside to find a half-eaten body waiting inside.

You can also use your newest gadget, the Discrepancy Amplifier, to scan for anything out of the ordinary, but unfortunately, you won't find any additional details.
