Simply because the number has negative connotations for some superstitious guests, who might be reluctant to stay on floor 13, or in any room ending in "13".  



In some hotels the 13th floor is known as 12A, but more often it is omitted. There is even a name for the phobia, triskaidekaphobia, meaning a morbid fear of the number 13. According to Otis Elevators, up to 85 per cent of elevator panels omit the 13th floor.
