Mm...also prefer much lower floors. Our bureau of fire protection firetrucks, say, in makati, have ladders that can reach the 10th storey only. Any higher and it is the rooftop escape from a burning inferno and wait for chopper rescue. Good luck with that. Stairs? Only if it is not compromised by toxic fumes from a fire. SOP ko din when staying in hotels. I always specify low floor room.
