    OK, if it is Toyoko Inn, there is little to no chance you will get the bed moved.  In general, their hotels are very small and there is only a small cleaning room on the floor, not actual storage. As they are mostly focused on business travelers, not vacationers, they are very no-frills.

    Additionally, the elevators are rather small – only just fitting my power wheelchair and one other person.  So, even if they wanted to change the bed for you, it would mean moving it off the floor via the stairs and then having the rental bed carried up the stairs.  Toyoko Inns also only have 1-3 staff on duty, so carrying a bed would be very close to impossible without getting outside help.

    So, while you can ask again, I would be VERY surprised if they agreed.

    As you mentioned, it might be best to ask about storage and luggage etc in a separate question.  Since this thread is about renting a hoist/hospital bed, not luggage, people wondering about luggage may not look here. Moving it to a new separate question will make it easier to find for future visitors.  Thanks for understanding.
