In the alternative, there are a number of well-located mid-range hotels if you don't require "luxury"-such as the Intercontinental and the Marriott (one of my favorites).

As others, as will as I, have noted, the PHS can be a very tight-fisted operation.
Definitely not opposed to paying for an upgrade, but not if it is unreasonable... do you know what an upgrade to a decent room would cost and if it could be arranged ahead of time?
