Hotel Elevator Tip: Go Non-Stop To Your Floor PDF Print E-mail

There’s a simple trick you can use to make the elevator an express just for you. It may be selfish to do it when the busy elevator is full of people, but there are times when you need to get to your upper-floor room fast. Then, the trick may be even more necessary when you’re riding the elevator down and you’re late for an appointment or airport limo pick-up.

When you get aboard the elevator, simply hit and hold down two buttons simultaneously for a second or two. That’s the one with your floor number on it (or lobby) and the close-the-door button. In most elevators, it will make your ride non-stop. If you prefer to avoid flack from other people for your trick, do it only when you’re alone on the elevator.
