As the title suggests, how frequent are room requests such as floor, view, distance from elevators, granted without a little extra given to the person checking you in? This assumes no history/loyalty to the given hotel. Are they usually pretty accommodating? Are some requests more likely to be fulfilled than others? I'm not really looking for an "upgrade", just seeing what the typical options are there that might make no difference to the desk clerk, and I should ask about while checking in. Will be staying at Planet Hollywood this trip if that changes anything.
