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.

“If the guests are not Lebanese, they can book a room,” said Nasrine Jabado, a front desk agent at the Quality Inn in Tripoli.

“If they are coming from abroad, it’s ok,” said an employee at an upscale hotel in Beit Mary who preferred to speak off the record. “Usually, in Arab countries, that’s hotel policy.”

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.
