When Judith is working at the reception desk of the skyscraper hotel in Seattle, Washington, a man named "J. J. McMahon" requires her attention. After all, he does "have a reservation". John J. McMahon, aka "J. J. McMahon" is the CEO of Wilshire Court Productions, the filming company that "created" (filmed, shot, designed, etc.) this film. Using his name is a fitting homage to a man that created an amazing company that created such an outstanding movie. This is also the reason that the credits list him as "Executive" rather than "J. J. McMahon". See more
The 13th floor remains mysteriously hidden because it is inaccessible via elevator. However, the film entirely ignores the hotel's staircases - until the end when they are shown to be extremely easy to access on any given floor. Since the hotel has 16 floors, it would be impossible for the staircases to skip the 13th floor and still accommodate guests and comply with fire codes. Contrarily, the staircases would very readily reveal to all the hotel guests that a 13th floor does indeed exist, even if its entrances were sealed off. See more
