Hyatt Regency Embarcadero Shows Our Fear of, and Attraction to, the Number Thirteen

Of course we hates the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero, we hates it forever, ’cause of the forever nonrevolving restaurant they have up on the roof, oh, how it mocks us, but leaving that aside, isn’t it funny how it lacks a 13th Floor

… but the name of the bar in the lobby is/was called 13 Views?

So, when you want to be safe at night, well, 13 is just too much bad juju for us to deal with, but when we tire of safeness, when we want to cut loose, put on our pretty shoes, and meet an exciting, dangerous stranger at a hotel bar, well, 13, that sounds… intriguing.

That’s the way it used to be, anyway, before the lobby bar closed down. Oh well.

    I was just in the building at 45 Fremont and noticed that they have a floor 13. I was surprised but delighted.

    Many, many Financial District buildings skip floor 13 — 333 Market, the Embarcadero Center buildings (if memory serves – it usually doesn’t), and a surprisingly large number of others. It’s just one of those things that I, too, always found odd.
