Ever Wondered Why Hotels Rarely Have Room No. 420?
But only a very few of us have noticed that most of the hotels avoid rooms with the number 420. After room number 419, they skip 420 and rent rooms from 421 and onwards.
1. Have you noticed such patterns at hotels before?
2. Well, the absence of room no. 420 in most of the hotels has connection with ‘Pot Smokers’
3. This issue came up about 8-10 years ago.
Posh hotels were the first to start this unspoken tradition. A lot of cases where guests high on weed stole room numbers and trashed the rooms while partying forced hotel owners to stop using room no. 420.
4. In the 1980s, a few hotel owners removed metallic number plates from room doors and painted room number instead.
The number 420 has a connection with weed, since 4/20 and 4:20 are celebrated by pot smokers around the world.
