Upon check in, asked for a comp. upgrade. She looked and said there were none. She mentioned there was a big slot tourny which was most likely the problem. She said any other time would be okay. She sounded legitimate. Maybe next time. Sorry as I am typing this in my 4 Queens room righr now on my phone.
Arrived around 6pm for a 4 night stay at the Four Queens hotel/casino. 3 clerks were working the desk. I offered the “sandwich” to the clerk and asked for a complimentary room upgrade. She typed for awhile into her computer before going to talk to another clerk (or maybe manager). She came back looked a little more, and then very apologetically told me that she could not upgrade me due to alot of Woodstock tribute activities occurring this weekend on Fremont Street. The best part…she returned the $20!! That was unexpected. I thanked her for trying and for returning the tip. I could tell that she really wanted to upgrade me, but just couldn’t under the circumstances. My first “PUSH” while in Vegas came at the check-in desk. Unfortunately, there were not very many more pushes (or wins) for that matter for the remainder of the trip.
Female clerk, looked surprised when she saw $20 sandwiched between the ID and CC, I calmly asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. She smiled, and typed away for some time. She informed me that she was moving me to the floor with suites, and gave me a room key, as well as a free parking pass for the extent of our 4-day stay. Suite was huge, had a bunch of perks and definitely worth the tip. Best bet in vegas!
Arrived about 8:00PM. This is probably the slowest week of the year in Vegas, right after the rodeo leaves town, so I had high hopes. Slipped her the $20 sandwich and asked if there were any complementary upgrades available. She never changed her expression, and even apologized because it was a smoking room. Ended up with a 2 room suite with a huge jacuzzi in the living room, 14th floor.
1st time to try here. Very nice young lady waited on me and I just asked and told her it was my 20th wedding anniversary. Very nice suite.
Worked for 2 couples, back to back. Reservations through airline.
Did the trick and asked simply “Do you have any complimentary upgrades?” The clerk’s eyes lit up and began searching. The funny part was the supervisor told the clerk it was not ok to upgrade us based on the fact that we had 4 days booked straight and on top of that it was through a discount website (Expedia).
When the supervisor left, she upgraded us anyways, took the 20, and told us to say if anybody asked that I was on my honeymoon. LOL.
This trick works! Best bet when entering Vegas!
Said it was my first time staying there. Gave the “sandwich” to her. She said, “Oh, I’m sure you will like this room”…and laughed all the way to the bank. Lost my first bet in Vegas, and kept losing.
Arrived early (10:45am), front desk moderately busy. Three clerks working, all were serving guests, and there were three in line behind me. I had booked 3 nights (Sun – Tues) through hotels. Got called to the desk, was told that all rooms were still being cleaned. Inquired about upgrade, clerk said there were upgrade rooms ready now. She asked for ID and credit card, handed her the sandwich with credit card on top. She hadn’t seen the 20 until now. She gave a muffled, excited yelp, nodded her head and began typing furiously. Requested high floor, smoking, got suite on 18th (wanted Jacuzzi suite, but didn’t want to risk appearing greedy by asking) in South tower. View of Fremont, window facing north (perfectly acceptable to us). Total cost for 3 nights in suite, including $20 ‘upgrade fee’ was $149.00.
Was getting married the next day, and with that and the $20 tried to get an upgrade. Was told “We are sold out” in a manner that I was an idiot for not knowing that and refused the upgrade. Worked out fine in the end, our room had an awesome view of Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience. Had a wonderful time anyway and will still try again next time!
