1. No, they treat both rooms separately because how they were booked. They will not forgo an upgrade on one and put it on the non-qualifying one. Asian hotels are very rules-based unless something happens to make them need to break the rules (I.e. An oversold situation).

2. Extremely low to none. Unless all lower room categories were already sold. Better chance possibly if you are not Asian (don't know why...based on who's reported success at upgrades vs failures).

3. If you don't want to switch rooms then forgo the first night upgrade and pay the second night to match the first, which should be a lower differential than the suite. While it's possible they might upgrade your free room to harbourview, they will not upgrade to the suite.
Thanks! Very useful information.
