In my job I have to stay in a great many luxury hotels. I know, it's hard, but someone has to do it.
I always insist on a room no higher than the 3rd floor. Why? Because of the signs. What signs? Those signs that say 'Do not use lift in case of fire'.
Quite honestly, I can't see the point of designing the places with lifts if you can't use them. Architects, pah!
