I've always thought this was a bit strange.  Just because you don't claim a 13th floor doesn't mean that this isn't a 13th floor.  When you get into a hotel and there isn't an elevator button for 13, and it skips from 12 to 14 and you are on the 14th floor, guess what... you are still on the 13th floor.

But, because of superstition, most hotels and taller buildings will leave that floor off the "select list".

And who can even pronounce the actual phobia for the number 13?  I get some superstitions. But seriously, it's a mindset.  You are still on the 13th floor whether it says that or not.  Just sayin.
