Odds of being upgraded

Just trying to do some very non-scientific research here

Can you post your number of on site stays followed by number of times you have been upgraded? I am thinking this only happens 5-10% of the time. No need to write where/when/type of upgrade

I will start

Maybe I'm due? (that's a joke, by the way. I'd never go in expecting anything I didn't pay for.)

12 stays (well over 50 nights, probably over 60) since NYE 2008-2009, and 0 upgrades.

Well, maybe once we got a preferred-ish room at Pop when we paid for standard. But only because I begged to stay in the 60s, we had stayed in every other decade. I don't think the room we were in was considered preferred.

Although I fantasize about them overbooking and "needing" to move us to the Poly, in reality, I am perfectly content staying where I pay for.
