Never a good idea to take chances with reimbursement.

It's been a while since I've been forced to overnight, but usually I try and nicely ask what the options are, and I can't remember ever being denied a choice of what they have. Sometimes they've proactively said "I can put you at the Marriott or the Holiday Inn" or whatever. Depending on where I am, I might be bold and ask for something specific. At ORD, for example, I'll almost always ask for the Hilton, especially if the kids are with me. It's always easier to walk down the hall than have to schlep onto a shuttle, especially with the kids (and their stuff) in tow. I can't remember ever being denied a request.
