Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luxury  from  Classic 

We checked in on a Sunday early afternoon. I put the $20 between the ID and credit card and asked if there were any “Complimentary Upgrades Available”. Easy and the staff the whole stay was amazing! Going again next month for 5 nights…only $157 total!.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  COMP-Premium, Mardi Gras tower  from  COMP-Premium Pet Stay 

Was offered a two-night complimentary room Tuesday and Wednesday at CET’s web site (TotalRewards). Was given a choice of “Deluxe” or “PremiumPetStay.” Though I don’t have a pet (and wouldn’t bring a pet to Vegas anyway), I chose the latter, it being a better quality room. I arrived really early, at 11am, and decided to check my bags rather than seeing if I could check in so early. I waited until 3pm before checking in. I stood in line, handed the clerk my license, CC, and a $20 tip below it, and asked for any upgrade and also the possibility of a late check out. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a suite or even a very fancy room. The clerk told me I could check out at 1pm instead of 11am. I wanted 3pm, but she told me to call down at 1pm the day of my check out. (I didn’t end up doing that, I checked out at 1pm anyway.) The room was OK, nothing awesome, but overall decent. I really can’t complain. A $20 tip on a comp room for 2 nights is $10/night. Yet, I don’t think it was an upgrade from what I already booked (no junior suite, no executive suite) and my tip only bought me 2 extra hours before I had to leave for the aiport for my 5:30pm flight. I ended up going to a different hotel/casino and storing my bag there. The verdict is mixed. (Side note: I’ve personally had better success with the $20 tip elsewhere.)

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  N/A  from  Standard Room 

Arrived in Vegas around 11 and attempted to check in at noon on the Thursday before Memorial day. The place was dead and I was hoping the trick would work despite recent negative reviews. I made small talk with the woman and thought I stood a chance. I handed over the sandwich and the money was immediately returned. She tried to get to me purchase the upgrade but I declined. I ended up with a high floor room in the Carnival tower.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Petite Suite  from  Mini Suite 

We got into Harrah’s at around 3pm, so just before Check-in for the day starts. The line was pretty darn long and we had to wait for more than half an hour. They staff was clearly shorthanded, only three people were trying to minimize the damage and unfortunately many guests didn’t exactly help to speed up things (mildly saying: they acted their worst).

Finally, we were called over to the information desk where we were served by a very nice gal in her early 30s. She immediately pocketed the twenty I had slipped her, smiled and thanked me. She then took a look into her computer and said she was really sorry that she could only give us a petite suite and that one had two queen beds instead of one king.
We thought about it for a second and accepted. Turned out to be a very nice room with a perfect view of the Volcano at the Mirage, comfortable beds, clean and pretty spacious, although I don’t think it should be called a “suite” but more a deluxe room. However I’m not going to argue about definitions, it was a 20 well spent.

Tipped:  $0 Upgraded to  VIP Suite  from  Standard King Room 

Checked in about 11 am into our standard room. Next day my hysband went to front desk told them he wanted to surprise me with a room upgrade. She gave us an upgrade that cost us a little under $300.00 for 4 nights. We stayed Tues-Sun. in a VIP Jacuzzi Suite. We did not give her any money. They were wonderful!!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  deluxe, with pillowtop king, balcony, flat screen tv in bathroom  from  standard 

I told my husband about the trick and he thought I was crazy, but said he would try it. We got there about 9pm on a Saturday. There were only two women working the front desk. Neither looked particularily friendly. The one that ended up helping us looked down right mean when we walked up. My husband told her our names and gave her his license and the twenty. I’ve never seen anybody perk up like she did! She gave us a great room, lots of coupons, and two free show and drink tickets. She said the room was $15 a night more and since we were staying a week, this was a good upgrade. It was worth it for the pillowtop king mattress alone!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe  from  Classic 

First off, we didn’t know until we got in the cab from the airport but the Rodeo was in town and it seemed as if Harrah’s was the central location and appeared very busy.

While in line, we just waited for the next clerk, who was a mid-20’s female. I was very friendly and the attitude was reciprocated. I had a $20 bill between my license, credit card and Total Rewards card. I asked her if there were any complimentary upgrades today. She stalled for a second, so I added that it was my girlfriend’s birthday while we were there (it was the day we left.) She placed the bill on her keyboard, typed away and said it wasn’t a suite but she could get us in a better room with a nice view of the Mirage Volcano show.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to    from  Standard Room 

We checked in early around 11:30am and approached a woman in her early 50s. I handed her the sandwich and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades. She placed the $20 by her keyboard and said she had to ask the managers. When she returned she said that upgrades were for “sale”…not for free. What she offered was a room that was recently renovated with a view of the strip for $15 more per night. We decided not to pay for the upgrade and she gave us our $20 back. In addition, she told us that there was a $10 charge added to our fee because we booked directly with the hotel over the phone. If I had known this I would have booked online for the same amount and wouldn’t have been charged $10. I was not happy and probably wont be staying at this hotel again.
