Checked with Judy. She said she noticed that we would like a suite if possible. I slid a 20.00 bill over to her. The first night we stayed in the presidential suite. That morning she called and transferred over to the executive suite for 6 days awesome lady. We always stop and see her now and get upgraded if she can. 3 out of 4 times isn’t bad!
When checking in I gave the hotel clerk 40 bucks in between my credit card and license. Asked what he could do for us and immediately called someone and gave us a beautiful Vice President Suite!
NO QUESTIONS! Loved it!
It was a busy checkin time about 6pm. There was a long line and I didn’t have a choice of clerk. I handed the $20 sandwhich when asked for an ID. The clerk chuckled and asked what that was for. I said if there was anyway we could get a complimentary upgrade. She quickly handed the $20 back and said we couldn’t do a complimentary upgrade but she could offer me a upgrade for half the price. I had a choice of rooms in the valley view tower high roller or strip view. I chose to wait for a strip view room and was charged half of what the upgrade cost.
Checked in at about 11:30 a.m. there was about three people ahead of me, but I got lucky and got a mid 20’s young gentleman. Slipped him the sandwich with a ten instead of a 20…I know (cheap). And he instantly took the 10 and got me upgraded from a crappy classic Mardi gras room to a top floor superior strip view room in the valley tower. Definite success.
She knew exactly what it was when I handed her the $20 dollar sandwich. She was very nice, looked at the computer and offered several room options. I ended up choose the suite.
Me & My GF had arrived around 1 pm in which was a early check in so as we approached the check in with no one in line we we got a young Spanish woman in here mid 20’s . After placing the 50 under my id she quickly handed it back without even checking saying they had no Complementary upgrades available
Small line on a Friday night (about 9 PM). Got to a youngish (maybe 30) man. Handed him the package with a $20, he placed it on the desk and looked into the computer. Was offered a High Roller view upgrade from a Mardi gras room. In addition was reduced one night of resort fee. My original room was comped so this made for 2 nights of fees instead of 3.
In the end I thought it was a decent upgrade probably worth about $75-$100 for my $20 investment. not mind blowing but made me appreciate the trick and gain confidence for using it next time.
Came in about 10:30 am on a Monday during COVID At the front desk with an older woman I asked if I could try to check in Early I gave her my credit card I’d and Caesars Rewards Platinum card before I could ask for a comp upgrade she saw the $20 handed it back said let me see what I can do before I take that she came back and told me we could do an upgrade to the highroller view for $5 extra per night plus taxes instead of $25 per night for a total of $15 plus the resort fees I was already paying and no early check-in fee as I was staying three nights Comp already based on play which is what I took along with the $20 I gave her I could’ve also done a suite for $50 per night which would normally have gone for $150 she said room she gave me was on the 29th floor as I asked for the highest floor available at the time which she said anything on higher floor would be a suite also said the room she gave me was a larger the normal room but not a studio but it used to be a suite before valley tower was renovated the room was nice
so I didn’t get a free upgrade but it still saved me money especially as I’ve heard the early check-in fee can be as much as $50 before 4pm
arrived at Harrahs at around 12pm on a Monday and was asked to use the automated check in but refused stood in the Q, was taken by a girl , she took our details , asked what room we had been allocated , she advised classic Mardri Gras room , i asked if we could have one of the newly renovated Valley Tower rooms , and I slipped her $20 in passport , she said let me check and said they only had the double Queen strip view suite if that would be ok , to which i relied yes had a brilliant view of the Mirage and room was massive.
I came in and asked about early check in on a Monday morning and told $50. I decided to check my bags with luggage and go play. Later I went back again and this $20 for early check and gave in. The attendant was very persistent in using kiosk to check in. When I had trouble they eventually checked me in person at the desk. I showed the $20 in hand and asked about complimentary upgrade to early check in waiver. She checked the computer and told me she could get me a better room view of the pool and up 9 floors, but the early check in fee would remain. I tipped the $20. The room was only a slight upgrade.
