Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Resort King Room  from  Resort King Room 

Gave $20 to a very nice front desk woman. I reserved a king room with fountain view. I asked for a free suite. She went to talk to her boss for a few minutes. She came back and said no suites are available but she will give me a higher floor so I can see the fountain better. I took back the $20 and gave her $10 instead and thanked her for trying.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Resort King Room 

We checked in at 6:30 PM on a Wednesday on August 2. We had a King room reserved for 2 nights. Check in wasn’t too busy. The front desk clerk was a nice young lady in her 30s and looks like she’s worked here for awhile. I was hesitant in doing the sandwich trick, but did anyways. I was nervous, yet polite and friendly. She in return was friendly as well. As I asked for a complimentary upgrade, I gave her a $50 with my sandwich. As soon as she saw it, she returned it back to me and politely said that she can not accept it. She did say she can see if there are any upgrades. At this point I was embarrassed. She told me she can try to get me into a Salone Suite at an extra $75 a night, but then she said it wasn’t ready. She end up giving us a King room on the 20th floor with a far view of the fountain at an extra $40 a night. The tower is located far from the front desk and behind the parking structure. We ended up paying a total of $520 for 2 nights with all the tax,fees and upgrade included. At $260 a night on a week day. Seems like we didn’t make out on this deal. Will try at another resort next year. The irony of this was that the $50 I was trying to give her for an upgrade. I used it playing slots that night and won a total of $800!

Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Grand Lakeview Suite  from  2 Bedroom Penthouse Suite 

Tried to upgrade with a $100 and was unsuccessful. I think it was mostly because I booked a high end suite to begin with. I figured I’d make it a C-note and go for a Grand Lakeview Suite. The most I was offered was a different penthouse but with a better view. I declined since I was primarily looking for more space. I tried this twice before and it worked both times so I’ll still be trying it in the future. Just didn’t have much luck this time but I gotta give the girl a lot of credit to walk away from a hundy like that.

Saved:  $$80 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe Fountain View  from  Resort King Room 

Walked up to the first available clerk, handed $20 sandwich, and asked for room w water fountain view, and scored. Rooms are slightly smaller than Caesars Augusta, but you can hear the fountain music through Tv channel 22. Was here for two nights with one night comp, so it was $20 well spent. Watched water fountain shows every night.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Resort King Room  from  Resort King Room 

Arrived late in the day on a Sunday to a fairly long queue. Didnt really get to choose who we were served by but clearly ended up with a young woman who had not had a good day.
She had never heard of service with a smile, her assistance was drab at best.
Did the $20 trick wedged between my passport and the cc, she opened it and immediately put it on the counter, no conversation, i asked about the resort fees in which she explained the exorbitant fees. I asked if there was any complimentary upgrades , i think her response was literally No. Finished check in and i couldnt be bothered taking back the money, win some lose some, so i left the $20 tip she didnt deserve. Put a damper on the stay. Bellagio, like most other older Vegas resorts was pretty boring and stereotypical and I would never stay there again. Room was uninspiring and could hear our neighbours. Wont be back.

Saved:  $$950 Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Penthouse Premier Fountain View Suite  from  Bellagio Suite 

I was originally booked to stay in the Bellagio Suite with a Strip View between April 1 and April 6, 2018 (5 nights) (avg. of $289 per night, plus resort fee). I made my reservations through the Bellagio’s website and signed up to be an M-Life member (for a 20% discount on the room). We arrived around 10:30 in the morning (Easter Sunday). We waited about 20 minutes to get to a front desk clerk. Due to the line, I was assigned the clerk–I did not make the selection myself. I gave the clerk (a lovely Asian fellow), $150 sandwich with a $100 bill on the outside–so he could see it was a good tip. The clerk was immediately impressed with the tip and said, wow–that’s a lot of money. I asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available since it was my wife’s 40th Birthday. He told me to hold onto the money for now and he will do his best to accommodate me. If was happy with his service, the gratuity would be appreciated. He immediately left to talk to his manager and came back to offer us an upgrade to a Penthouse Suite with a view of the Fountains (Room 36032). The Room was absolutely spectacular and the view was perfect. It was worth every penny of the gratuity and then some!!! Money well spent!!!

I did not target any particular clerk but I checked in on a Monday at 1 pm. My clerk was a woman in her 30s and tipped $20 via sandwich and asked for any complimentary upgrades. I was staying for one night and she told me they could not give me an upgrade because they were all booked but she did waive the dog fee of $125 for my friends dog and the parking fees for both of cars overnight ($36 total). No room upgrade but about $160 took off my hotel bill in total so I would say it was still worth it.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Resort Queen Room  from  Premier Fountain View 

I stood in line and was very nervous about this tip sandwich. It was then my time to go up to the desk. An older guy clerk was waving me over and I pretended to not see him because I wanted the younger girl that seemed to be handing out upgraded left and right. The heat was on as people behind me started to groan. I pretended to drop my wallet and turned and told them to go ahead. That worked and the girl waved me up next. I made some small talk ans inquired about an upgrade. She told me that I had two nights comped and wasnt sure what I was looking for. I felt myself getting flush with embarrassment and then began to stutter. I took the 20 tip sandwich and said – would this help? She said that she would need to ask her manager. I told her to forget it as I had a long flight. She then canceled my room. I told her to forget the upgrade not the room! I was then asked to stand aside while they sorted it out. In the end it was sorted out but I had to pay for one of the comp nights. I also did not get my 20 back.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Penthouse Premier Fountain View Suite  from  Penthouse Suite 

I went in early on our check in day at 9am. Since we already had a penthouse reserved I was hoping to get an upgrade to a fountain view. I didn’t specifically target any clerk since there were only 2. The girl at the desk was very nice and immediately handed the $20 back when she took my ID and card. After looking up my reservation she said here were no complimentary upgrades available for the room I booked but she would look into a fountain or premier view room for the difference. I ended up paying the extra $100 for the premier view as a surprise for my wife. I assume since it was a holiday weekend and I had already booked a penthouse there really wasn’t much to upgrade to but it was worth a shot. It also seemed like at the VIP check in they weren’t allowed to take tips since she handed the $20 back before looking at the computer.

I was checking in on a Thursday, and staying until Sunday on the last weekend of September. I’ve never tried anything like this before, so I’m not sure if I did it right or if I missed something. But needless to say I was a little nervous when I tried it. When I got to the front desk, I handed the clerk my ID and card with a $20 bill folded in the middle. While handing it to him, I asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. He took my cards saw the $20, and gave it back to me and replied something along the lines of “you’ll be taken care of.” However the room I got was A regular King room, on the 8th floor, on the back of the hotel facing away from the strip. This was my first time at the bellagio but I’m pretty sure that was just the standard king room that I booked.
