Had a crappy room on 4th floor comped for 2 nights.
Slipped a 20 between my CC and ID…
I waited till the moment she looked at the 20 dollar bill and I siad ” Its my girlfriend’s birthday. If there are any complimentary upgrades with a view I would greatly appreciate it.”
She responded with ” Let me see what i can do!”
We were upgraded 26 or so floors higher with a view if the Bellagio fountains
We arrived around 10:30pm on Friday. Myself, my wife and our daughter. We waited in line and luckily we were waited on by a young man. I didn’t even disguise the tip – just handed him a $20. I said we were in town to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday and would appreciate anything he could do to help us with a memorable trip. He was great and told us the room he put us in might be noisy due to the band and if we didn’t like the room to let him know and he would switch us to a different room. It was PERFECT!!! Best $20 I ever spent.
We arrived in Vegas at 8:30 am on a Sunday morning. We went straight to the hotel and checked our bags as soon as we got there because we knew we wouldn’t be able to check in yet. After breakfast and walking around for a little bit, I went to check in about 11:30. The line wasn’t too busy and I did not target any particular clerk. I had a regular comped room already so I figured I could up my sandwich amount. The clerk immediately saw the money when she took my ID and asked me to hold on to it until after she assisted me. She asked how she could help me and I just asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available for my stay. I made sure to tell her that we didn’t mind waiting a while because we had already checked our bags. The clerk said she wasn’t sure she would be able to help but she would be glad to check with her manager. Off to the back she goes. When she comes back out, she says she has good news. Honestly, I was expecting an offer of a fountain view room, which I would have been fine with, but she said she was able to get us a suite. She put a rush on the room and called me when it was ready. At the end, I gave her the tip and thanked her for the excellent service. It probably didn’t hurt that the couple next to me was practically screaming at their clerk because the room wasn’t what they asked for. The tip helps, but being overly nice is helpful too.
The line was busy so we were unable to target anyone. We got to the desk around 1pm, knew the room might not be ready but we wanted to get our keys and get rid of our bags so we could go play. I had 4 nights comped through my Total Rewards card. The lady looked a little stuffy and was not friendly so I just kept my 2 $20s VERY visible in my hand on the counter. I asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available for us, the invited guests. She said there were only upgrades for purchase. We declined.
We tried our luck with the front desk tip during our stay at Paris. We arrived later in the evening, so there wasn’t much of a line, but we did not pick a specific clerk to speak with.
When I handed her the cards and tip, she took a minute and authorized an upgrade to the Lyons suite! I didn’t even get to ask for an upgrade- she beat me to it. Our suite was beautiful, with a separate living/dining room and two bathrooms. She said the room typically ran around $800 per night.
As we were walking away she thanked us for the tip. Overall, much easier and less uncomfortable than I thought it would be. Would recommend this tip to my friends!
We arrived to check in around 1pm, even though we knew official check in wasn’t until 4pm.
Our clerk was very nice, we told her we were celebrating a birthday, and it was my friend’s first time in Vegas.
We had already booked a premium room (strip view) and received two complimentary nights.
I handed the woman a 50 in between my credit card, total rewards card, and ID and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available.
She said she had a renovated RED room with a strip view, but there was only a king size bed. Considering there were going to be three of us in the room (something we didn’t tell the hotel), we declined.
So we received a renovated RED room, no view.
It was still a great room, and a nice upgrade.
I was at Paris for a 6-night stay during the very busy CES week — not a great time to be asking for upgrades!! Still, when I got to the counter after a 20-minute wait, I handed the clerk a $20 bill along with my license and credit card. Didn’t hide it, or “sandwich” it between the cards, just straight up handed it to her.
Just asked her for the best room she could give me. During CES, and for such a long stay, I kind of figured a P-room or a suite was a little out of my reach.
She thanked me for the $20, tapped on the computer for a while, and asked if the number of beds was important. I said no, as long as the room was non-smoking, I was fine.
She eventually found me a very nice 17th floor room. Just a standard room, but upgraded to an incredible view, one that Caesars normally charges extra for. Gorgeous view of the Paris pool, the Eiffel Tower, the Bellagio and its fountains, Cosmo, and CityCenter.
My girlfriend and I book a room @ paris, checked in around 11pm so it was super late and no waiting in line to be checked in, a man looked like to be in his 40s checked us in, before he said anything I simply said “good evening sir I’m checking in” and I started a little chitchat about our roadtrip, after that he asked me for my id and cc and I had already had my sandwich in my pocket as I pulled it out I said ” do you have any upgrades available” with a big-o smile and my sandwich on the desk so he can see I mean business :> , he typed away for a minute or two and BAM he said “will a suite le mans be ok?” I couldn’t bealive it and said “yes of course” gave me my keys and off we went!! I was really nervous when asking for the upgrade as this was my 1st time going to vegas and I’m not the type of person to ask for discounts/free things but I didn’t it anyways and I’m glad I did!!
Just was the next available. She was nice and we asked if she had any complimentary upgrades, we knew it was “holiday time” since July 4th was when a lot of people were staying through. We gave her the cc/dl/20, hoping for the upgrade. Got given the high floor strip view
Had won a trip for four from Caesar’s Entertainment with the hotel part of the comped package along with limo and air. We were given two nights comped for a regular room. We booked our trip for this past weekend and added on Sunday night, making it a three night stay, with us only paying for Sunday night.
We arrived at hotel around 10pm on a Friday night so weren’t sure if it would work. I went up to the clerk, gave her my cards with the $20 between them. Asked if there were any upgrades for the two rooms. She looked around for about 5 minutes trying to locate two upgraded suites on the same floor and with a King Bed. After the 5 minutes she did find them. My wife and I got a corner suite Red Room Premier on the 27th floor overlooking the Bellagio Fountains and our couple friend got the same room, just not overlooking the strip. Again very easy and this was the 5th time we have used this to get a free upgrade. Works everytime.
