A predominant number of Lebanese hotels forbid unmarried couples from staying together in a room. [Source]
I have to partially agree with this article as i believe there are more hotels that accept unwed couples than ones who don’t.
â€œIf the guests are not Lebanese, they can book a room,â€ said Nasrine Jabado, a front desk agent at the Quality Inn in Tripoli.
â€œIf they are coming from abroad, itâ€™s ok,â€ said an employee at an upscale hotel in Beit Mary who preferred to speak off the record. â€œUsually, in Arab countries, thatâ€™s hotel policy.â€
Added to that, i have to ask those hotels what difference does being a Lebanese make? Why do they assume the girl is a whore or the guy is filthy if they are sharing a room?
I find this policy really backwards and unjustified as this is bad business for them.
