Here in Australia floors go - Ground Floor then 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32......I could go on but you get the idea...weird hey? Maybe some U.S. Hotels delete 13 ? I worked in a Hotel which starts at the 35th. floor and room numbers miss 13. on each level.

Plenty of older buildings in Hong Kong have both 13 and the 4's. It's only the newer ones that skip those.

Some do, some don't. I happen to live on a 13th floor for the last 12 years and it has been lucky for me. Our talking elevators even announce it. "Thirteenth floor, please watch your step"
