Saved:  $probably around $500 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Lanai Suite  from  Terrace Studio 

Gave the 20 sandwiched between license and credit card. Clerk asked if I needed change. I replied that it was for checking if there were any upgrades and that we were celebrating wedding anniversary. Clerk indicated that they can only take tips and they will check and we are free to take tip back if we want. Clerk checked around and found a great upgrade for us – newly renovated Terrace Suite Fountain view.

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:  $20 Upgraded to  Terrace Studio  from  City Room 

I checked in on at 6pm on a friday night. I handed my $20 dollars between my ID and CC and asked politely if they had any complimentary upgrades and also mentioned that it was my first time staying at the Cosmopolitan. The clerk placed the $20 dollars on her keyboard and started typing and let me know that she would see if anything is available. It took awhile and she even called someone on the phone asking what she could do for me. I ended up in a terrace studio which was amazing and was much better than I had expected as I booked the lowest room type.

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!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Terrace Studio - Fountain View  from  City Room 

Prior to my trip, I read this website. I arrived at 9am (before check-in). I followed the instructions, except I used a $50 in between my credit card and license. She placed the bill next to her and I asked if there were any upgrades available. She stated they were pretty booked. She then made a phone call and stated she could give me 50% off on the upgrade per night. Came out to $25 a night. She also immediately checked us in and put us in a balcony room on the 55th floor with a view of Bellagio fountain and the strip. Room was awesome.

Saved:  $500 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Lanai Suite  from  Terrace One Bedroom 

I checked in around 7pm on a Tuesday night for a one night stay at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. I used the $20 dollar trick with a mid thirties female clerk. She put the $20 on the counter and told me she would see what she could do. She made a call to her manager and ended up upgrading us to the Lanai Suite which is one of the best hotel rooms in the Cosmopolitan! It is a loft style room with it’s own private outside area with a hot tub! I couldn’t believe our luck and thanked the clerk along with giving another $20.

My boss got mad. I actually didn’t know if I’d gotten an upgrade (never been here before) until my plus one mentioned at a work party something about our terrace with the fountain view. lol. No one else had been upgraded including the CEO who was paying for everyone.

Didn’t target a clerk. The lines were too long.

It was at 3pm. I didn’t even say anything. Just handed the worker $20 and voila! Got a Terrace One Bedroom with Fountain View. Absolutely amazing

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.

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.

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!
