Did the tip and was upgraded to what looked like a 1 bedroom suite that was the size of 4 standard rooms! Well worth it!
fantastic vegas,big view of Bellagio, from the south tower……cross the street to Bill’s Gamblin’ Saloon’ for decent steaks .Bally’s is best &+++OK
Wanted not just an upgrade but an upgrade to a suite. Used $50 — two $20’s and a $10 — placed between credit card and license. Chatted with clerk, was told hotel was at full occupancy. I told him we were in town to celebrate my wife’s MBA (true). He said it would be tough to get a suite, but typed for a whle. Then he sai he could upgrade to a suite for the first half of the stay, but would have to move us down te hall of the same floor and could only offer a North Tower upgrade with Bellagio view for second half of stay. (Comparison cost $80 reservation/$450 suite/$100 North Tower).
This was more than great!. Then when he took the credit card and ID he pulled the $50 out, handed it back to me, and said he did not want to take that since he could not give us the suite for the whole trip!
Visibly held the $20 in my hand, handed her the credit card and ID, then asked if any complimentary upgrades were available. I asked specifically for strip view since this is what I wanted. She checked the computer and said she didn’t have anything with the strip view. I acted disappointed, then tapped the $20 on the counter, and she quickly changed her mind and showed us where our suite would be located. It was on the top floor for the rooms, the floor above us had the ballrooms. It had an excellent strip view, including a view of the Bellagio fountains. Our friend booked his reservation at the same time for the same room on the same dates. He didn’t give try the $20 and was placed in a standard south tower room on the ninth floor. The upgrade was obvious when you compared one room to the other, so it was definitely a success!
Put the $20 under the cc and asked for a suite upgrade. Bingo!
checked in a little early…..did the $20 and got the premier tower with a downtown view. Couldnt get the suites, big shopping center convention (40,000).in town.
Followed tip to the T, walked up to gentleman with $20.00 between drivers licence and credit card and asked for any complimentary upgrades and he said he had something for one night, but would need to move to a different room for the 2nd and 3rd night. He put us in the Celebrity Suite in the North Tower, which he claims they do not sell. Claims it is a $300.00 upgrade. The room was HUGE over 1500 sq. feet! 2 baths, HUGE tub and shower, work out room with bike. Bar, dining room table w/ seatin for 8. The room was awsome. Went back down to thank him and see what we could do for the next 2 nights. He was able to get me the same room on the South Tower for $100 bucks more a night. Very nice, though, a little older than the one in the North Tower. So basically we stayed in 2 celebrity suites for 3 days for $407.00 as opposed to the $69.00 rooms we reserved. The extra 220 that we spent in the tip and extra 2 nights was well worth it…over 1500 square feet!!!!!!! Thanks guys!!!
Easy as pie I went from a regular room into a 2 bedroom room with a great view.
The room was in my wife’s name. I taught her the trick on the flight out. When she got there, she did it so well, the desk clerk didn’t even realize the $20 was in there until the last moment. When she did, we were upgraded to a mini-suite in the south tower on the 16th floor. Thanks for the great advice!
I found a great deal for a luxury room (not a classic or deluxe) for $69/ night for 5 nights. I slipped her the $20 and asked for an upgrade. She said she had a great refurbished room for me in the North Tower. I reserved a luxury room so I expected a great refurbished room. She pretended she was doing me a favor, but I don’t think so. It was my first time trying the $20 trick and I felt like I was down $20 before I even got to my room. The room was big and very nice however, but I think it was the same room I reserved.
