Is this a cringeworthy thing to do?

    I'm not a very bold person when it comes to asking for things, so I just thought I'd ask your opinion on something that I'm considering doing.
    Mr Tarte and my sister's new husband clubbed together this Christmas and bought for my sis and I a night at a luxury hotel.
    We're very excited about it and are looking forward to a wee bit of child free time together! We've been booked into a standard twin room and if I know my husband, bless him, he'll have booked directly through the hotel and not one of the discount sites, eg. lastminute.com.
    Would it be really greedy/cheeky if I were to email the hotel and ask if there were any room upgrades going? I particularly want to make the weekend nice for my younger sis, and I don't feel I have anything to lose by asking. Also, do hotels reach full occupancy in the middle of January - they may agree to it quite readily if not??
    Have you ever tried to blag something like this and what was the outcome?
    Thanks x

    No harm in asking...

    Best if you explain the situation and then ask for a discount on the upgrade.

    Thanks, just what I thought! I still find it a bit embarrassing to ask but sack it, I might as well try. It's only one night, after all.
