We arrived at 2 PM & the reservation lines were packed. Didn’t really have a choice as to which clerk we would get. Originally booked two wheelchair accessible rooms online and it wouldn’t allow us to choose which tower we were in. We only wanted one wheelchair accessible room and one regular room but we were afraid it would be in 2 different towers so we just reserved 2 wheelchair accessible rooms online. Once I got email confirmation I saw that both rooms were in the Roman tower. Upon arrival to the hotel we had to wait in line about 20 minutes. As it happened when we got to the front of the line a male manager was standing in close vicinity to our clerk, So we were nervous to even try this. I instructed my husband put a $20 bill between his drivers license and the credit card and he handed it to the clerk and told her online it didn’t give us a choice of which tower we were in and would it be possible to upgrade our rooms. She said she would check and placed the $20 bill back on the counter in front of us. We also told her we only actually wanted one wheelchair accessible room but since we wanted to be in the same tower we couldn’t book it that way online. She typed for a few minutes and told us she had upgraded rooms available & told us she could put us in 1 wheelchair accessible deluxe room with 2 queen beds & 1 deluxe room with two queen beds, both in the Augustus Tower & just down the hall from each other. Both of the rooms were absolutely huge. Our room had a spa tub and a walk-in shower and had a beautiful view of the Bellagio fountains & the strip. The wheelchair accessible room was also huge and had a view of the other side of the strip, no bathtub, but instead a shower with a pulldown wheelchair accessible seat in it. Under the vanity there was another free standing portable wheelchair accessible seat that could actually be put in the shower or used to sit in front of the vanity. The first night all six of us ordered room service and sat looking out the full length window watching the Bellagio fountains! It doesn’t get any better than this!
Wife and I were in vegas celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary.. We booked 2 nights for the cheapest room available of a total of $180.
We checked in around 3pm at the diamond line. They were two people infront of me and there were three workers working the front desk.
Two female’s one in her 60’s and the other in early 30’s, and one male in his late 30’s who I was hoping to get to check us in. Luckily we got the male!! Like majority of everyone who tried the sandwich i was really nervous.. the man greeted me and asked for my id and credit card.. I slipped the $20 between the two.. The man notice the $20 placed next to his keyboard and said thank you and let me see what i can do for you.. I nervously asked i was interested an comp upgrade and was looking for a fountain view. He replied let me see what i can do.. He gave us a room on the 3rd highest floor in the August Tower corner room with a view of the strip and fountain.
The room was huge probably just under 1,000sf!! it seemed a bit outdated though but the view of the strip and fountain was what i wanted, so I am happy and definitely will be doing the sandwich trick again!!
I am a vet with Platinum status so we skipped to a lady in her early 40’s in the Platinum line. We arrived at 630pm on a Thursday night. I sandwiched my $40 and she smiled and layed them to the side. The rest is History and the Suite was incredible
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.
I have been researching the sandwich tip for a while and was nervous to use it but when I came to Caesars this year I decided to try it and see what happens. We had a basic Octavius room that I booked on a discount due to a sale and we were upgraded to a newly renovated palace tower premium room that is very big with two bathrooms, double shower and large tub on a high floor. It was busy and we couldn’t choose which clerk to go to but we arrived at noon and thought we would have to wait till 3 for our room to be ready. I handed the sandwiches tip to the clerk and asked are there any complementary upgrades and he took the money and said he will see what he can do. Once he found a room, he said it was available now for us and then he explained all of the upgrades we received and said the upgraded room goes for $200 more per night usually. He could’ve been lying but he got us into a room immediately and it is a great room and I will definitely be trying the $20 tip next time I come to Vegas.
Celebrated my birthday in Vegas! Got there at about 3pm Saturday to check in. I didn’t wait for anybody in particular, but I did get a younger guy in his 20’s. I handed him my id and credit card with $40 folded in between. After he saw it I told him I was there for my bday and was looking to upgrade. He went right to typing and wrote my name down so he could check with “inventory”. He came back and pulled out a booklet to show me which room he had available, which was the octavious executive suite. The room was awesome! It even had a view of the water fountain show at the Bellagio. Definitely worth it!
We arrived after travelling 24hrs to get to Caesar’s. The queue was not long but probably due to irritability it felt like we we waiting for a while, however the guy that served us was lovely.
We handed over passports/cards + the sandwich. He gave us a smile and told us that he would have a look for any upgrades. He upgraded us to the Octavius deluxe suite which was amazing as the beds are much bigger and the bathroom is a sight to behold.
I would definitely recommend giving this a go! Hopefully your clerk is as friendly as ours was!
I got the guy 50 bucks and asked if there were any complimentary upgrade and he was really nice about it. I couldn’t get a king sized bed that I ordered but got a much nicer room with two queens. I get home and check my credit card statements and see a 44 dollar charge that I didn’t recognize was made about it since I still had the room charged as well. But it turns out he bought the whole room for me and just made me pay the 44 dollar resort fee. I didn’t even pay for the room! The charge for the room was gone!
I usually do the $20 sandwich every time I’m in Vegas. Since I went during a slow weekend and had a comped room, I figured I would try $40. I handed the 25-ish gentleman my card and ID with the money in between. He saw it, said ‘Thank you’ and asked me what I was looking for. I asked him if he had a room on a high floor with a large soaking tub in the Octavius or Augustus tower . He said he had the perfect room. He told us that we were one floor from the top (44th floor) of the Augustus Tower with a strip view. The room was incredible and had a view of the Bellagio fountains.
Did not have to say anything. The $40 is self explanatory. Asked if I could get an upgrade for a special occasion. Done
Got to the check-in desk around 2:00 pm. There was one huge line, so no one could be targeted. I ended up getting a young guy in his early to mid 20s. After giving my credit card and drivers license, I asked what possible rooms are available. I wanted either a suite or a strip view room in the Augustus tower. He eventually found a Studio Suite in the Palace Tower and a 2 queen strip view room in the Augustus tower. I mentioned the possibility of having an Augustus Executive Suite instead, and he returned to the back room to talk to inventory. He came out 5 minutes later saying that that it could only be had for $250 extra per night (down from $500/night). I declined and settled on the Augustus room. Almost right as we completed the paperwork, a lady from inventory came out and said that the suite was mine for free! Ended up being on the 41st floor, with only two rooms separating it from the strip end of the building!
