Room Upgrade Reports

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Terrace Studio - Fountain View  from  Terrace Studio - Fountain View 

Already booked an upgraded room but figured I would try the trick to see if anything nicer was available. Checked in around 9:30 pm on a Monday. Couldn’t target a specific clerk. Only a single line of guests to alternating clerks. Clerk was pleasant but seemed somewhat indifferent. She saw the 50 I placed between my drivers licence and credit card and thanked me. I asked if any comp upgrades were available and she said only if you pay the additional room rate. Little disappointed but still ended up with a nice view of the Billagio fountains so not all bad.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Wraparound Terrace Suite  from  Wraparound Terrace Suite 

Checked in around 11am on the Monday of July 4th, visiting with a group of friends. We booked both the wraparound suite and terrace studio 2 queens. Couldn’t target a clerk. Young women checked us in she was very nice. I slipped her my cc and dl with a $50 sandwiched in between. I asked if she could give us two rooms on a high floor together. She placed my ID, CC, and bill on the side of her desk very visible. Then she said, “Let me go make a phone call in the back, I’ll be right back.” But then a few minutes and a few key stroke later she says “I love when I’m having a good day and everything works out. I have a terrace studio and wraparound suite very close together on the 51st floor and I can give you partial views of the Bellagio fountains. The terrace studio is available right now, and I can send a rush order for the wraparound suite to be available now as well.” We also had a third person staying in our wraparound. On the website it says that they charge for extra people above 2, but she just asked how many keys and suggested that we should get 3 in case anyone gets locked out! No extra charge.

Early check in, high floor, and fountain views? I couldn’t believe it. She also made it clear it’s nice when people are nice and don’t talk down to the clerks as the cosmopolitan try to be as accommodating as possible. Then once the transaction was complete she asked, “Is this for me?” While pointing to the bill and thanked me very much and says it’s much appreciated. The rooms and views were stunning. Best $50 I’ve ever spent.

Tipped:  $0 Upgraded to  Wraparound Terrace Suite  from  Terrace Studio - Fountain View 

Checked in, didn’t even ask for an upgrade, was told we were getting upgraded to the wraparound terrace suite, didn’t take it too serious, but low and behold it was amazing, totally made our Vegas trip the talking point…..

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Terrace One Bedroom  from  City Room 

Did not target a clerk as there was a line. Checked in around 4:45 and slid the attendant a $50 to see if we could get an upgrade. This was going to be my first gamble of the trip and I lost. Not only did the attendant keep the $50, I ended up paying $38/night for a terrace one bedroom for our three night stay.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Terrace One Bedroom  from  City Room 

I arrived around 12PM on a Monday. I did not target a clerk because they had us form a line and you had to go to the next available clerk. I walked up to the desk and said “I’m a little early, I was wondering if I could still check in?” She said sure. I handed her a $20 sandwich and said “I was curious if there are any upgrades available?”. She put the $20 off to the side and said she needed to call someone. She called and then got off the phone and said she could upgrade us to a terrace one bedroom for free! 🙂

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Terrance One Bedroom - Fountain View  from  City Room 

We checked in at around 7:00pm on Wednesday. There was a bit of wait and it was a female clerk that checked us in. She asked us if we had stayed with them before. It was our first time visiting Las Vegas and of course it was our first time staying at Cosmo. We were only staying for one night. We didn’t ask for anything. We just handed over $20 with the ID and credit card and the lady said she would check what she could do for us. She called somebody and said she was able to update us to a one bedroom King with fountain view. The view was awesome and the room was the best! The best stay during our whole trip! I would definitely stay at Cosmo again next time!

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Terrance One Bedroom - Fountain View  from  Terrance One Bedroom - Fountain View 

Checked in on a Thursday as part of a 4 night stay. Asked about a wraparound even without a fountain view. Laughed at me and said she could get fired for that. But she thanked me for the $50 as she kept it. Bad way to start a trip but it’s Vegas and I was there to gamble.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Wraparound Terrace Suite  from  Terrace One Bedroom 

It was around 2:30 pm when we checked in, I chose to line up at the front desk furthest away from the autograph lounge. I smiled and gave her the tip and she said, I have you booked in a wraparound terrace suite fountain view on the east tower

Saved:  $1200 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Two Bedroom City Suite  from  City Room 

We arrived at midnight with 3 adults and 2 kids. There were only 3 front desk attendants. I put the $20 dollar tip between ID and visa. The lady was very polite and put the money besides her computer and asked if we wanted change? I said slowly with my poor English if “I could get a free room upgrade?” She said she will see what she can do. She then called someone and was able to get us a room with two bedrooms, a living room and two washing rooms! The rooms had 2 queen beds and one king bed and she added a free crib so everyone could have a bed, which was fantastic! It’s our first time to las Vegas and it’s such a wonderful room. Thank you for the kindly lady and this helpful website! Good luck everyone!

Chose clerk furthest from manager.
It was 5pm.
Gave her the 50 sandwich and asked if there were any upgrades available. Told me that for 80 dollars I could upgrade. It usually cost 100.
I declined. She kept the 50 and said thank you.

Cosmopolitan Details

If you are visiting Las Vegas and are staying at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, we think it’s worth trying the $20 dollar sandwich trick. When checking into your Cosmopolitan room, put $20 dollars between your ID and credit card and ask the clerk if there are any complimentary upgrades available. At many of the Las Vegas hotels you can get upgrades to suites!
