Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Spa on 41st floor with stip view  from  Park Ave 

I talked to the first clerk available. I gave him a $50.00 sandwich and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. He handed it back and said if I was happy with the service after check in, he would be happy to take it then.

He double upgraded me from the basic Park Ave room to Spa room on the 41st floor with a strip view. He also said he would cover one night of the $20.00 Resort Fee because I checked in late, (2AM).

I’m wondering if he noticed it was a $50.00 sandwich not a $20.00 when I checked in because when I checked out all of my Resort Fees were comped, not just the first day. Was the extra days just a mistake or was he topping off comp because he received a lot more than he thought. If that was the case, had he known it was a $50, would I have ended up with a suite???

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Madison Ave  from  Park Ave 

Got into the hotel around 1 am, so it was technically 1/27/13. Stood in line behind 2 other parties and got the next available clerk who was a SE Asian woman in her mid-20s. She was not overly friendly. Handed sandwich and asked if there was any possibility of a complimentary upgrade to a suite. She never really responded to that question and took all the cards and the $20 and placed them all at the top of her keyboard. She double checked our room reservation on her computer and re-confirmed that we were booked for a standard Park Ave room. She asked what bed type we wanted and if we wanted smoking or non. We told her we wanted a King non-smoking room. She replied, unfortunately, we do not have any Park Ave rooms that are King non-smoking, so I can upgrade you to the Madison Ave street view. I was a little disappointed because it sounded like we would have gotten the upgrade anyway w/o the $20. The room itself was on the 19th floor, relatively low, and facing the roller coaster so we could hear people screaming. The room was dingy and tired, the carpet had seen better days and I never went barefoot in the room. The toilet had a weird black stain in the bottom – looked like a fat permanent marker – and the shower was like being under a watering can. Overall, I was disappointed. We had better luck when we left NYNY and checked into Mirage 2 nights later and got a fantastic room I was really happy with.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Didn\'t  from  Madison Strip view 

Checking in to NY-NY around 3:30pm. After standing in line for about 20 minutes, I was ready to try the $20 tip trick. I handed the clerk the sandwich with $20 easily visible and asked if there was an upgrade available to a Spa or Marquis Suite. She typed for a few seconds and said the Spa Suite was $25 per night and the Marquis Suite was not ready yet.
I told her to forget it and she continued to check me in flipping the $20 with the cards but not touching it with her hands. She finished and handed me back my cards and money the same as I gave it to her.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Madison Avenue  from  Standard 

Flight arrived about 6:30 from Omaha, there was no wait in line. Handed the young clerk the sandwich. She smiled sheepishly and looked kind of shocked. Asked if the hotel was offering any complimentary room upgrades since my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. She said she’d see what she could do. Upgraded us from a standard room to a Madison AVenue room with a very nice view of the mountains. Handed the $20 back to me and said it was complimentary and to have a nice anniversary! Score! 🙂

Tipped:  $0 Upgraded to  Madison Avenue  from  Park Avenue 

Flight landed at 8:30 AM so went to check in early and was greeted by Monica. She was great and very nice. I told her that my wife and I were there to celebrate our first anniversary and I was looking for an upgrade to a suite and slipped her the $20 between my license and credit card. She noticed it and set it on the desk while she worked to look for upgrades. She told me that suites would only be available for an additional fee/day, but that she could offer me a complimentary upgrade to a Madison Avenue room, so I took it. She then returned the $20 because the upgrade was complimentary. She was very nice. Maybe $50 may have been a better play.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Broadway Deluxe w/ Strip View  from  Park Avenue Deluxe 

We checked in on Sat. around 1:30 pm on Labor Day weekend so we weren’t really expecting to get an upgrade on a holiday weekend. There was a pretty good line but it went fast and we were lucky to get a young guy. I handed him the “sandwich” and he said “Oh, is this for me?”, I said yes and asked him if there were any complimentary room upgrades available. He said that he could upgrade me to the next level room with a strip view also. I thanked him and off we went to enjoy our vacation thanks to frontdesktip.com!!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe  from  Skyline 

We checked in at about 10pm on a Friday night. There were two front desk employees working, I was hoping to get the older filipino lady( I have a lot of Filipino friends and I thought I could use that as an advantage) I ended up with the younger Hispanic lady. I told her my name, she asked for my ID, and credit card, I handed it to her while holding a $20 bill in my hand. I asked if there were any COMPLIMENTARY upgrades, she smiled, and said she would see what they had available. She ended up upgrading us to a room that was three levels higher than what we reserved. It wasn’t facing the strip but, it had a special elevator that went from the lobby, to the 30th floor and above, which ended up being super convenient not having to wait with the people on the lower floors. I felt like a high roller. We had a GREAT 1st anniversary thanks to the sandwich trick!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  NA  from  Park avenue Deluxe 

Couldn’t target the young guy I wanted to talk to, got a 40-something woman from the Philippines.
I gave her my friend’s ID cause the room was in his name, then I gave her my sandwich w/ my ID & CC, saying I wanted to put the resort fee on my card.
When I handed the sandwich, I asked if there were any complimentary room upgrades available, and she said no first without looking at the computer. she said that all the spa suites were booked because of the Lady Gaga and Rush concerts that weekend. She checked on the computer, too. I even leaned over the counter and nudged my CC so that the $20 was more visible. She just ran all the info and then handed back the cards & $20 without ever acknowledging the money. Totally ignored it. FAIL

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Spa Suite  from  Park Avenue 

Checked in about 4pm on Saturday, there was a very short line, maybe 2 people in front of us. I didn’t target a clerk, just figured it was worth trying with anyone. Handed the sandwich to a female clerk in her early 40’s. She moved the license and the bill fell out in front of her. She said in a surprised voice “oh, is that for me?” I said yes and asked for an upgrade, she checked the computer and offered a spa suite if we were ok with a smoking room. Well worth the $20 and made up for the crummy weather this weekend since we could more or less hit the pool in our room.
