I'm getting braver / more confident as I near the end of my current Diamond Status, achieved on the back of a status match last December. Currently in Leeds at a mattress run I decided to stay at, as part of my plan to retain Gold status for next year. I paid £47.60 for a basic queen guest room, and was not offered any upgrade at check-in so headed straight up. I'd been monitoring the app during the day and seen the last suite disappear so assumed there was nothing left. But checked the app once I was in my room, and a king suite appeared again. So leaving the room in pristine, untouched condition, I went back to the front desk and politely asked if they could give me an upgrade. And they did ! Davide on the front desk was brilliant. And now I'm sat in the 13th floor sky bar enjoying the second of my free drinks.
