Booked the lowest rate I could find – $51/nt. Wed-Thu and $101 Fri-Sat. Put the $20 between the CC and ID and asked simply : “Do you have any complimentary upgrades available?” She replied : “I can give you a widescreen room at no additional charge (costs $20/night normally.) I accepted and she thanked me profusely as I left. Also gave me 2 line passes, a $20 dining credit and two $10 match play coupons. Well worth it.
Tipping cost me 1/3 of the rate if I would have reserved a view room!!!
I checked in maybe a little early, i had to wait in line, then i get this asian teller, she had no clue what i was talking about… then i had to break it down to her, she found an “upgrade” wich i took anyways cause thats where i wanted to be… will definitly try again sometimes!
Said that all the rooms were filled and that they were not able to provide us with any upgrades. Gave us an option of upgrading with $20 extra each night. First time in vegas and was sad it did not work but i’ll try again the next time I go.
Placed the $20 bill between ID and credit card and asked if there were any complimentary room upgrades. I did not think it would work as there was a huge conference and this was one of the “official” hotels. I was upgraded to a “Strip View Room.”
I gave the 20 inside my passport with my credit card and asked for complimentary upgrades. The very young lady said that there weren’t any suites available but that she has a Stip View Deluxe available.
the girl handed it back to me and didn’t understand what i was asking for. I was able to talk to some people after for free and get a strip view at least. but really no upgrade for the tip trick
I traveled in a group of four and reserved two rooms in a package deal through Northwest World Vacations. Unfortunately, we didn’t get there till late on Friday night, so everything was booked and sold out. I handed the guy $40 plus our ids and CCs and asked for any complimentary upgrades. All that was available was the deluxe rooms which are a little bigger with a seating area. The bathrooms were also quite large, but I don’t know how they compared to the Tower Rooms. Since we got there so late, I think we probably got a bad deal. But it did work again. I tried getting the guy to throw in some comps for food or shows, but he didn’t get what I was hinting at.
It worked great for me at the Excalibur this past weekend. I handed the girl at the desk my credit card with the 20, she put the 20 on the desk and she upgraded me to a deluxe room. She said that there weren’t any suites available for nights I was there.
