Room Upgrade Reports

Saved:  $Hard to gauge as we used a 25% off coupon to begin with! Roughly $100-200 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe City View Room  from  Deluxe Room 

I didn’t target any particular clerk, as we arrived so late in the evening (we arrived somewhere between 9 and 10pm), and we had booked a 5-day stay.

I had my doubts that we would get upgraded, but the young lady who checked us in after a very brief wait in line was very courteous and asked us what room we typically stay in, to which I replied something to the effect of ‘we take what we can get’. We were offered the strip view upgrade without much fuss.

When there was a very minor issue with the room we were placed in, they offered to move us to another room but wouldn’t upgrade us further and only had one other strip view room for our long stay duration, and that was a handicap room. I suspect if we had booked strip view, we would have been moved into one of their tower suites due to the issue, but we settled on having them fix the problem and then were offered a complementary food + drink voucher for $50 instead.

Saved:  $About $300 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Corner Panoramic Suite  from  Deluxe Room 

We checked in early at about 12, there was already quite a queue. We where directed to a friendly lady at about mid twenty’s. We knew getting a complementary upgrade at the aria was not easy but tried it anyway. Put my ID cc and $20 on the counter. Started a friendly chat and asked if there where any complementary upgrades available. She said because it was busy there was non, but there was a paid upgrade possible from the deluxe king room we had to a Corner Suite withPanoramic View. Normally this upgrade would be a 175 a night extra, but she could offer it to us for 90 a night. We hesitated a bit and she asked us if she needed to try to get some more discount. Sure, we said and she went away to talk to a manager. After a few minutes she came back and said for a 70 extra a night we could have the room, but had to wait a little before the room was ready. This was ok by us. She took the 20 and directed us to a private lounge for suites and above with a separate check in, and complementary coffee, tea and some other drinks and light snacks. After about half an hour the suite was ready and it was really worth the extra bucks. What a nice room! A Panoramic view when you sit in your bubble bad at night drinking a beer and overlooking Las Vegas is priceless. Glad we did the extra investment.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Deluxe Room 

Booked through Probably a mistake.
Picked a pleasant lady, aged about 45. Checked in around 8 pm. Suites were showing available for the entire stay.
She put the fifty on the counter, then made a few calls. Said there was nothing she could do, handed the 50 back. I tried giving her ten bucks for the effort, she said that was ok, all she could do was give me a room slightly higher up.

I am on the MyVegas app on facebook.
Used the two spring nights at Aria reward and paid for a third night. After a three hour flight delay and a death defying cab ride, we got to Aria shortly after midnight. We did not target any clerk, just the next available one. We gave the young (25-30) front desk clerk my id and credit card, along with $40 and said if there is anything you can do. She said she would do what she could (I got the impression she had some management clout). I was not going to try based on internet research but my wife said it would be good karma. The clerk got on the phone and then said “wait until you see what you get”. Upgrade to Aria Sky Suite! I gave her an extra $20 because I knew what was in store. Best hotel room I have ever seen. So for $149 one night plus three nights resort fee + $60 we stayed in the Sky Suite for three nights worth $2000. A very epic (for us) vacation.

Just pulled out the $20 while checking in and as I put it down on the counter I said it was my wedding anniversary and asked ih there were any complimentary upgrades. He looked at the $20, went and talked to his manager and came back and siad he could upgrade me to a room overlooking the strip.

I booked regular Deluxe King Room. As I was staying with my brother, I asked at the reception if it would be possible to get Queen instead of King. Clerk started calling somewhere, took him like 5 minutes. In between he asked if we were staying just one night. We confirmed that. From there it was little confusing, as he said that he was able to get us one of Sky Suites. We went to seperate elevators where in a part where the Sky Suites are located, our room was on floor 54. Even though on the key cards, door of the room and accessories in the room (such as toileteries, note pads, pens etc.) it said Sky Suites, the room was just a little bit bigger than regular Deluxe Room, but was decorated as Sky Suite. Also had a nice strip view. I was trying to find the room online but they aren’T offering it there. Don’t really know what exactly we got upgraded to, but most certainly it wasn’t regular Deluxe Queen.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe City View Room  from  Deluxe Room 

We were greated by a younger male (late 20’s) and I had my $20 sandwiched between my drivers license and credit card. After he took the stack and set it by his keyboard I asked “Do you have any comp upgrades available?” to which he started typing and replied “let me see what I can find”.

We went from the regular room to the “City View” so it wasn’t a fabulous upgrade by any means but paying an extra $20 for 3 nights to get a better view seemed worth it to me.

Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Deluxe Room  from  Deluxe Room 

We were going to stay for 4 nights with discounted price of $69 a night plus resort fee as a Mlife offer.
We went for Mlife Gold check in area and there wasn’t any lines. Since we were staying 4 nights, we decided to take chance with $100 for suite upgrade.
We gave ID, credit card, Mlife gold card and $100 sandwiched to a 30ish year old woman.
She promptly put the money on keyboard and said let me see what I can do.
Before check in, I checked online if the suites are available and all of them were still available.
After searching from a computer for a minute or 2, she said she can upgrade us to strip view. Which we didn’t get excited. We asked if she can do sky suite or corner suite.
She then went and checked with manager and said we can upgrade you with a $100 a night fee. Then we declined and asked for original room.
She said fine but kept 100, which I thought was not right..
I said I appreciate your help would like to change the initial money I gave you, and took out $20 from my wallet. She then became unhappy and returned the $100. Then I gave $20 but she refused and said she can’t take it.
Regular room was not bad too, but decided not to try with $100 again.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  2 Bedroom Penthouse City View Sky Suite  from  Deluxe Room 

This upgrade has worked twice for me. First time was March 19 for my 50th. 2nd was Sept 19 for fun. Both times I had 4 comp nights for a regular room. My brother had to pay the regular rate for 4 nights.
We walked up with a $50 and held it within eye site and asked if they could combine our 2 reservations into one. Took a lot of discussion with the employees in suits and a lot of phone calls. Yes! 2 bedroom penthouse suite! Sweet!
My brother had to pay his regular room rate he was paying anyways which was $870. That’s it for 4 nights.
