13R for 5 story hotel?

We recently received plans for a 5 story hotel, the first floor is separated from the 2nd - the 5th floor by a three hour separation.  There has been a request made to sprinkle the first floor as a full 13 system and then the wood framed 2nd through the 5th with a 13R system.  From what I can find 13R is intended for anything up to 4 stories. 

Is there code that allows this?
