    Which floor or what floor?

    "Which floor" or "what floor"

    For example if you're in the elevator, there a person coming in and you would like to help him/her to press the level button.
    How do you ask?

    "Hello, which floor are you going?"
    "Hello, what floor are you going?"

    Re: Which floor or what floor?

    "Which" is more correct, but "what" is commonly used.

    I would say "Which floor are you going to?" if forced to use a whole sentence.

    Simply "Which floor?" would normally suffice.
