The game hasn't 'crashed' as such because I can still alt-tab out of it and it's responding in Task Manager.
I'm using an ATI Sapphire Radeon HD4870 with the updated (non-freezing) BIOS, an Intel C2D e8500 @3.16GHz, 4GB RAM, Vista x64 and a Creative Audigy sound card.
Exact same problem, on an Intel C2D, 8800GT and Vista 32. Tried playing another mission first but no luck. Sometimes it gets stuck at the loading screen before entering the hotel, but usually at the loading screen after I enter the elevator.
Update: Problem solved by itself. Nothing changed regarding drivers or anything else, just played a little longer and tried again successfully...
