Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Terrace Studio  from  City Room 

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.

Was this an epic upgrade?

Saved:  $$50 per night. Total of $100 for the weekend. Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Terrace Studio - Fountain View  from  Terrace Studio 

Showed up at about 8am on a Saturday. Only 3 clerks working and a lot of disgruntled guests checking out. Was called by the desk clerk, 30ish male, and gave him the sandwich and asked for a view upgrade because of it being my wife and I’s anniversary. Clerk upgraded us before he even noticed the $20! Then I couldn’t take it back. Got a beautiful studio overlooking the fountains and strip! And got to check into our room at 8am!! The $20 tip was well deserved by the clerk because of so many unnecessarily rude and grumpy guests and his automatic good attitude toward us.

Went to the Cosmopolitan twice and tried the $20 trick both times. The first time the front desk guy said i left my $20 at the desk. Because he didn’t even check for available rooms for an additional fee, i took my $20 back. I went back a year later and thought i can try again. This time she called someone for them to say the hotel is overbooked. I just took my room key, thanked her and walked away. Dont waste your money on the tip trick.

Attempted with $100 bill. The receptionist immediately placed the $100 back on the counter and would not accept. Offered me to upgrade from basic room to Terrace Studio for $35/night, which was about the price difference between the two.

Didn’t say anything, guy knew what was up and appreciated it. Went from standard 2 queen to a 1 king and pullout couch. The upgraded room was much bigger and came with a balcony.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Wraparound Terrace Suite  from  Terrace Studio 

Handed the $20 “sandwich” to the check in lady and asked if there were any complementary upgrades available. She made a call and said we can give you a wraparound terrace suite. We happily accepted! Check in was around 11 pm on a Friday and there was no one else checking in when we there.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Terrance One Bedroom - Fountain View  from  Terrace Studio 

Didn’t target any clerk. Check in on 12/24 Christmas Eve. Arrived at about 8pm. There was a huge line in front of the reception desk. Even thought the web site mark everything sold out, we still gave a try. Hading over a 20 dollars sandwich, we asked whether there was a complimentary upgrade available. She was very polite and offer us an upgrade immediately.
Great experience here at Cosmopolitan.

No upgrade available, despite attempt to tip with $20 trick and having communicated with concierge pre-booking about three requests, none of which were available for check in. Concierge service gave us free buffet tickets for our trouble, which was nice. All in all $20trick does not work here.

Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Terrace Studio - Fountain View  from  City Room 

The Cosmopolitan does not allow you to pick a check in clerk, you go with whomever is available. We had a very nice lady when we checked in around 10:30pm. I put 40 dollars in my passport and asked if any upgrades were available. She immediately separated the money and got on the phone.

Unfortunately, no room upgrades were available, however she did move us from a city view to fountain view. I say no upgrades because this is what the clerk told us. She also gave us a $50 room credit.

It was worth the attempt as the lady was kind, courteous and willing to give us a room credit.

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!
