We arrived at 2 PM & the reservation lines were packed. Didn’t really have a choice as to which clerk we would get.

Room Upgrade Reports

Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Palace Tower Premium Room  from  Forum Tower Deluxe 

I checked in on Tuesday afternoon and had high expectations. I waited in line for about 30 minutes and was assigned to a young Asian guy. I asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available today and he said “we’ll see” with a smile. I put two $20 bills between my AMEX and driver’s license, then handed it to him.
He saw it, thanked me and immediately put it next to the keyboard. I originally had a sub-par (comped) forum tower room, but was upgraded to Palace Premium Studio! I wanted the Augustus Strip View but they were completely booked out. However, I enjoyed my Palace tower room very much! Two shower heads, two bathrooms, a big jacuzzi tub, bidet, high floor, pool view and directly in front of the pool entrance.
Just checked and these rooms can go for $4-500 a night!

A young women waved me up as next in line. Checked in about 4pm on Monday. I had credit card, drivers license& $20 between. Asked if there were any possible complementary upgrades today. She smiled put the $20 aside and said it was up to her own discretion and I said no problem and she gave me a beautiful suite with a view overlooking the strip. She was extremely polite as I was to her.

Saved:  $$5,000 Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Caesars Executives Suites  from  Augustus Tower Deluxe 

Checked in around 10 p.m. on a Tuesday night. Our flight from Dallas had been delayed three hours and we had missed a dinner reservation. Needless to say, we were pretty tired – but the front desk clerk made quick to cheer us up.

Walked up to the counter and presented her with the sandwich – credit card, $100 bill and ID. Her eyes immediately lit up and she started typing away at her keyboard. She eventually said “hold on, I’m going to go speak with our inventory manager.”

She left for about 15 minutes, came back and said she needed to speak to the supervisor. After another 15 minutes she came back, broke out a book of Caesar’s rooms and showed me where we were staying – the Augustus Spa Suite on the 40th floor overlooking the north end of the strip.

1,200 square feet with two bathrooms, a walk in shower, jacuzzi tub overlooking the north end of the Strip and double vanities. Ridiculous upgrade. On Friday and Saturday this room goes for $1,200 a night.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Augustus Tower Deluxe  from  Forum Tower Deluxe 

Queue was busy so we did not get to target any clerk. We were sent to a middle aged lady who greeted us and took my 20 sandwich. After placing the ID and CC on the table she noticed the $20 and said” is this for me?”. I replied yes and she said let me see where I can put you, and asked if we were celebrating anything special. Mentioned it was my birthday and a couple taps of the keyboard later we were upgraded to our room on the 20th floor with a great view of the strip and Bellagio fountains.

Saved:  $Not sure... Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Augustus Tower Deluxe  from  Augustus Tower Deluxe 

Wife wanted to do automated checkin on her phone but I wanted to try the tip. So showed up and waited in line, had a very nice lady ask us for the ID and credit card. I didn’t put the $20 in between, but said I’d like to give her a tip and set the $20 on the counter. I then also said if there was any comps that would be great and if no that’s fine too.

She was kind of surprised, but said she’d see. It took a while while she typed and the. She had to grab a manager. She ended up telling us she waved the $40 early checkin fee and upgraded our room since someone else couldn’t checkin until later. Had a great room overlooking the fountains, and the $40 early checkin was a real benefit. I thanked her and said she made our day. She said happy early Christmas. Overall it was a great experience and I enjoyed connecting with her, it’s kind of awkward but I liked just telling her it was a tip up front and no strings attached. What happens happens.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jr suite   from  Basic room 

Done this at Caesars twice now and it worked both times. First time was an older Persian man in his late 50’s. This time it was a younger asian man, maybe around 25. I would keep doing this at Caesars because it always seems to work. Each time I’ve booked a basic room and have been upgraded to the jr suite. About 650 sq feet with separate living room and jacuzzi tub with a tv in the bathroom!

There was a long line, so I had no idea which clerk I was going to get. I ended up getting a clerk around 2:45 p.m. He was a nice young man, and I was hopeful this was going to work! After exchanging greetings, I gave him my ID, $30, and my card all sandwiched together in a nice stack. I simply said, “I was wondering if I was eligible for any complimentary upgrades.” I made sure I didn’t say it too loudly, though. He saw the cash and said, “Gotcha. I’ll see what I can do.” After a few moments, he upgraded my room to a nicely renovated Palace Tower room. It really was that easy, and you should definitely try this!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Augustus Tower Deluxe  from  Palace Tower Premium Room 

They have auto check-in kiosks now, but the general admission line was fairly painful. Around 30 minutes on Friday evening… but was worth the wait! $20 slipped to a clerk who instantly smiled and said he will see what he will be able to do. I almost didn’t need to say anything but did mention “Any upgrades available?” Upgraded to a suite in Augustus tower. This is my 2nd time in two years getting an upgrade at Caesars Palace.

Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  August Tower Luxury  from  Octavius Tower Deluxe 

When I arrived at the hotel it was fairly busy so I had no control in which clerk I got. Luckily I got a 30 something year old male who was very helpful.

When I got to the desk he greeted me and I told him that I was there for my 40th birthday and I was hoping to get an upgrade. He took my card and says he has some great options. Both were in the Augustus tower, one was one and a half baths the other was strip view, and of course I took the strip view. The room was located on a corner with two windows for maximum strip view. I was very happy with the upgrade.
