generally not in a hotel - almost nobody tries to build hotels with a ceiling cavity of any significance. they are generally soffited over the bathrooms and corridors for venilation, sprinklers, etc, and the room itself is essentially the space between the slabs minus a couple inches at most for the floor (carpet, pad) and the ceiling (skim coat, paint, maybe just paint, maybe an acoustical treatment, etc.)

mechanical is handled with fan coil units either vertically in a wall cavity, or horizontally over the entry to the room. it would not be uncommon for a hotel to have a 9'-0" floor to floor height, an 8" thick slab, and not much over 8' clear in the room. recently constructed five stars might be a ten foot floor to floor, that same 8" slab, and 9'2" or so clear in the room.

in steel frame mixed use buildings, this can all change because of the beams, but due to the lower floor to floor height hotels are concrete more often than not....

You can use non-girder concrete floors to save on the cost of construction and architectural space for your office
