went to front desk with ID,credit card and $20 sticking out between cards.Had two rooms reserved.king and two queens.She asked if wanted them connected.I asked if they had any comp upgrads available.”let me see”did some typing and said had a King and tewo queens available in the fantasy tower and they were connecting.but they were no smoking.Said great ,my daughters can live without smoking in room.Asked for ID and credit card.That $20 vanished just like that.For $20 recieved two room upgrades for two nights.Fantastic
It did not work with a female employee but after talking to a male employee worked like a charm!!!!!! I love the Palms and Nine Steak House!!
Put the $20 between the card and license, and the gentleman who checked us in, didn’t see the $20 right away, and was quick to say that there were no upgrades on our room that was already booked. When he saw the $20 he was quick to offer us the newer fantasy tower, and put us on the floor with the Crib Suite, the Bowling Suite, etc. Didn’t see or hear anyone on that floor the entire week until Friday night. Also gave us 12 club passes, and told us to come back the next day if we needed passes to any clubs on the street, and he would make sure to get us passes.
Had a 20 showing between license and credit card. Asked for a comp. upgrade. She saw the twenty, and said she would get us into the newer Fantasy tower. I said that is great thanks. She said Thank you, put the 20 in her pocket, and put us on the 17th floor of the new tower. Well worth $20 for 2 nights.
Checked in at around 2 pm, asked the clerk to be upgraded to the newer fantasy tower, she mentioned no can do, i asked for any type of upgrade with a strip view, she gave us the junior suite with a north strip view(as opposed to the strip view)on the 51st floor.
Was worth it for sure!
Clerk worked furiously after showing the sandwich. She laid it out in the open for manager and cameras to see. We had two rooms. One upgraded to a one-bdroom suite (2 baths, only 1 King, no 2 queens). The other room was upgraded to a Superior room.
She tried really hard to get us into one of the larger suites, but the manager shot her down.
Worked like a charm… with a male clerk. Attempted to check in with a female and experienced an instant attitude. Immediately walked away and returned when there were more male clerks. Ended up checking in with a male clerk and the upgrade worked flawlessly! Thanks for the lesson.
$20 for 1 living room, 2 bathroom, king size bed. Top floor 2 floor away from ghost bar. The Front desk staff asked me if I wanted change, I said it was for his service.
Unbeatable rooms for $20 dollars more.
Complete sucess I offered the tip with the ID and Card, she placed it in plain view on the top of the counter and told me (After I requested any comp upgrades), she has a great suite perfect for us.
After accepting the room she left the tip on the counter and I said, that’s for you. She replied thats not neccesary and thanked me taking the tip. made me think they do not want to get in trouble, but as with all hotels I have sucessfully tried this at, if you are polite and they have the rooms available you will more than likley be sucessful. I LOVE THE PALMS, it is cool and funky. Easily the best place to stay in vegas…
Went out to Las Vegas on a Friday night..so I was concerned that this tip may not work plus we were staying at one of the newer hotels on the strip that is very popular. So I decided to go with a bigger amount ($50) because it was a special occassion for my wife and I.
Needless to say, the clerk set us up with a fabulous room with an unbelievable room!! Well worth the $50.
We were staying through Sunday night so we also changed rooms on Sunday and were given a Salon Suite. The $50 tip gave us about $750 in value for the rooms that were given to us.
