Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jubilee Grand Suite  from  Jubilee Room Strip View 

First, let me tell you I THOUGHT i was booked in to Harrah’s, but that’s a whole nother story. When I tried to check in at Harrah’s I was routed to the high end check in lady and she politely said she was not allowed to do the upgrade. So, by the time I went to Ballay’s I was quite flustered. The young lady at the front desk at about 6:00PM was very nice and accommodating. Upgraded to a gorgeous suite overlooking the strip. Plus when I got home and opened my bill, surprise!, $56 in resort fees waived! I already had a nice room comp’d from minimal gambling on the Rewards card in New Orleans, so it was a giant comp on top of a comp

We came late due to traffic (around 8PM on a weekday). We did not target anyone specifically but we were helped by a middle aged man. We slipped him the sandwich and gave him the “are there any complimentary upgrades” line. He set it aside and said he will see what he can do. He found something for us and told us if we don’t like it, we can come back and let him know. Obviously, we were very happy with the upgrade from a regular queen room to a executive suite with a strip view!

I got upgraded to Jubilee executive suite!

We arrived at Bally’s around midnight. There were only 2 clerks there. One seemed like he was having a good day, and the other one… she was arguing with the customer about something and the manager was right next to her. So I started praying. “Please let me go to that guy. please…” but of course, when it’s my turn, the customer that was yelling walks off. I went up to her as her manager went back to his room, I said “hello” and gave her my sandwich. When she got my sandwich, she kind of dropped the 20 dollar bill on the desk and was checking my ID and stuff. I said: “I was wondering if there is any complimentary upgrades.” With a smile in her face, she said “Let me take a look at it…” then boom, I got my upgrade!

I went on Tuesday right before Thanksgiving (11/20/18) and If you book it early enough, you don’t need to pay for the original room that I was supposed to stay in. So my quick 2 days trip hotel was free! (excluding 20 dollar bill, and 2 nights resort fee which is 39.68 dollars per night)

So I recommend going that week! You can’t go wrong with a free room at Vegas with a huge hot tub and an amazing view.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Indigo Junior Suite  from  Unsure 

I was checking in this past Tuesday afternoon for a four night stay leaving on my birthday, so I thought I had a good chance and opted for the $50 tip because of my longer stay which included a Friday night. I had a comped King smoking room, and anything above that would be great. He gave me the choice of a non smoking suite or a King room with some sort of premium view. I said I wanted the suite. Then he tapped around and said I got you on a higher floor, and I ended up on Floor 14 with a pretty cool High Roller view.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Jubilee Room  from  Jubilee Room 

Hello, checked in for 4 days on May 28th, for the first leg of a family vacation where we also happened to be celebrating an important birthday. We had booked three rooms so I sandwiched a $50. The clerk was very nice, sorry that I do not recall her name. She told me that she would be happy to check on an an upgrade and she said that she could upgrade two rooms but not three. She took the $50, completed the check in and off we went to our rooms. Long story short, we all got the same kind of room and it was the same as the room we booked, two queens, with a view of the high roller (not strip view). To be fair, it was Memorial Day weekend, and our stay was for four nights. I’ve read that shorter stays are more likely to receive upgrades. So, in short, we were told that we were upgraded, but we were not and the $50 was not returned. I hope others had better luck than we did.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jubilee king  from  Indigo king 

Forgot the name of the young girl, but I arrived
late on Friday, around 1030pm. I didn\\\’t know if anything would even be left. But I handed her the tip sandwich ($20), and asked about upgrades. I was upgraded to Jubilee towers at no additional charge. I booked indigo towers for $75 a night (early reservation), so getting a room that usually runs closer to $150 per night on weekends was substantial enough for me. Jubilee towers are the newly renovated rooms of Bally\\\’s. Highly recommend, and will definitely do this again!

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Executive Suite  from  Classic South Tower 

We arrived at the hotel at 4pm on Thursday. I book 4 nights in the Classic South Tower room. All 4 nights were comped. I used the Platinum Players line, Since I am one and the regular check in line was really long. Also the clerk was a young female in her 20’s.

There was 1 person in front before my turn. I was talking to my cousin and asked her if I should do it or tell her I tip well then tip after we get a good room. So we decided to do the sandwich.

When I got up to the desk I was soo nervous. I handed over my CC $50 and ID. I stuttered “Are there any available complimentary upgrades?” She said “what??” I was so nervous! I said it again and she said “yes we do!” I went on and said “the biggest room you have, I want something very nice.” She says” the presidential room?? I would love to put you in there but they are blocked off this weekend!” But they were having a huge convention this weekend. I couldn’t believe that I almost got that room. So she is checking around and found a room in the North Tower that had a Sunken in bedroom, with a jaccuzi. I really did not want this roon cause of the size, but it was better than a south tower room. She then says “it only has a king bed it tho, but I can get you rollway.” I asked if it would be free. Then she says “hold on I’ll be right back.” She runs off to her manager and comes back 5 mins later. She says” I can put you in our 1,200 sq ft. executive suite but its in the south tower.” This was the room I wanted!! She says let me get you a good view. After that she said that if we needed anything , she was there all weekend.

We get to our room and it was huge! It had 2 bathrooms, big wet bar with fridge and 6 bar stools, a living room, family room, dining table, 3 tvs, a huge separate sunken in bedroom with a king bed. In there was 2 closets and his and her sink. And we had a beautiful view of the eiffel tower and cosmo, and a partial view of the Belligo fountains. This was worth $50! Comes out to $10/day for long weekend since it was a comped room.

Saved:  $$100 per night we were staying from online prices Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Jubilee Room 

We arrived at noon on a Monday, they had ppl pushing us towards their kiosks. We have been reading about the sandwich and we’re going to try so we went around the corner and found the early check in line. Folded up my 20 and handed it to our clerk( middle age woman) she took it, recognized it and immediately began typing away. They were doing some kind of construction right on the front desk so talking involved yelling. She asked if we didn’t want the two queen bedroom that we booked and we said no and we were wondering if their were any comp upgrades. She kept typing and when she handed me back my cards she said I put you into the executive suite.

Had no target as the hotel was understaffed. Put a $20 discreetly between my ID and credit card. The clerk immediately pushed it back to me and told me they aren’t doing upgrades (this is a weekday..) I asked if she had anything better available and she offered me a $600/night suite…like seriously?

Saved:  $$100/night Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Indigo Junior Suite  from  Indigo Room 

There was no line at check-in but there were only a couple people working.
I approached the guy who happened to be wearing a Broncos Jersey. It was 8:30pm Sunday check-in, I already had an offer for 3 complimentary nights and a friend who was staying at hotel who arrived earlier. The desk clerk told me there was no fridge in room so all I asked for was a room with a fridge. He ended up putting us in a Jacuzzi suite and said he would have a fridge sent up to the room. Within 5 minutes a gentleman rolled a cart with a fridge on it into the room. I tipped him as well and left $5/day for housekeeping. I believe in good Karma. It definitely made our stay one of the best.
