The 21th Floor

Here is an interesting bit of Chinglish / Engrish taken at a Beijing hotel in Zhongguancun (the Silicon Valley of Beijing as it were).

The twenty-firTH floor?

did you check to see what the signs on the other floors said? 11th, 12th, ...19th, 20th, 21th, 22th, 23th, 24th, ... nth floor. maybe they just ordered the letters "t" and "h" in bulk 'cuz it was cheaper than buying individually. nice sign, though. i assume this was not a backpacker hotel?

As I recall, the 21st floor was the only one with TH. The first floor was 1st, etc.
