Arrived around 9 pm on a Sunday night. The front desk line was maybe 5 people deep. I ended up with a late-20s woman at the front desk and I handed her my ID, credit card and a folded $20, making no reference to it. She put it on the desk and we made small talk. She said that I was booked in the Mardi Gras tower (which is older and louder). I said yes, but if there’s any way you could put me in a Valley Tower (newly renovated tower) room with a view I’d really appreciate it. She said she’d see what she could do, briefly went to the back room to speak to someone and returned.
The room itself was indeed in the Valley Tower, it was a nice view of the mountains and if I went to the extreme left of my window I could just see the High Roller. It was pretty quiet and removed from the casino loudness though, which was my main concern. I definitely don’t regret the tip. The room was just fine, I hoped for a little magic but it didn’t quite go as planned. One word of advice: know exactly what room you want to be upgraded to. As in, the exact name on the website. And don’t expect more than a tier of upgrade unless you’ve got lots of documented Total Rewards play, at least not at the $20 level. YMMV if you try to tip $50 or even $100, but for a middle-of-the-road hotel like Harrah’s I figured $20 would be sufficient.
Arrived just after 4 PM. There wasn’t a line, and I was waved over by the clerk. I already had my $andwich ready to go, and handed it over while asking if I could get something better then the “Expedia” class of room. She smiled and said “Let’s see what we can do” We ended up getting upgraded to a deluxe with an eighth floor view of the strip hotels and mountains in the distance, and a small balcony, as well! This was in addition to the better bedding, bath, and TV the deluxe provides. Definitely worth the $20!
My wife and I were staying at Harrah’s, comped the first two nights, $35/night for the second two. I decided to go big and specifically ask for an Executive Suite, and since we were staying 4 nights, I went with a $100 bill. Got a younger female clerk, handed her the sandwich and told her “That’s for you if you can get me a complimentary upgrade to an executive suite.” She did some typing, spoke to her manager, and said “I have you for 4 nights in an executive suite.” We got into the room, it was spectacular: Wet bar, separate living & bedroom, huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub & massive shower, strip view looking straight down on the Mirage volcano. Definitely the best $100 we spent on this trip!
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
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!
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!
So easy! $20 for suite with jacuzzi tub on 34th floor!
We went to check in at about 2PM local time on a Thursday. I had a folded up twenty between my license and CC. As I handed the tip sandwich over the counter, I asked the young woman if there were any complimentary upgrades available and she instantly knew what was happening. She took the twenty dollar bill, put it on the counter top and said, “let me make sure I can help you before holding on to that.”
It took maybe 2-3 minutes, but eventually she handed me my CC and license as well as some room keys. She never said she could or could not get me the upgrade, but I decided to leave the $20 on the counter for her just in case.
Sure enough, when we entered the spacious living room area of this awesome suite, I knew we got upgraded. We went from a single room with a king bed to a suite with a couch, breakfast table for four, view of the strip, his and hers sinks, stand up shower and a separate tub, plus a bedroom with a king bed and two chairs that were perfect for uh… nighttime activities.
First time in Vegas and read about this online as I was looking to see if you can do free upgrades. Slipped a $20 when she asked for payment and ID and asked if here were any complimentary upgrades. Immediately said “Sure we can do something” as she discreetly put the $20 in her pocket. So worth it! She gave is the option of a pool view or strip view and said we could get a nicer room of we had a pool view.
I was at harrah’s at 10:30 on Monday at night because my flight was delayed. The clerk name was Elena. She say welcome to harrah’s and I said thank you this is my first time. I hand her my ID, credit card and a $50 bill in between. She found the $50 and put it on the keyboard. She work her magic and said we booked you in our executive suite at the valley tower and also you receive $20 free play. The executive suite is glamorous, I love it
