Showed my $20.00 bill and asked if there were any upgrades available above the 25th floor, she said I’ll be back in a moment came back a few minutes later and said we would be very happy with the room. Well we were it… had a 42″ plasma tv and all recently redone in reds and deep brown furniture , was absolutely beautiful!!!!
Halfway through Labor Day weekend, checked in Sunday afternoon. Asked for complimentary upgrade per this website’s instructions. Clerk did some typing, then sighed and said they were too full for a real upgrade. He returned the twenty. However, he did switch us from a room with no view (back of Bally’s) to one overlooking pool and Eiffel tower, more pleasant. However, room needs renovation, TV small, bed soft and creaky.
Arrived at hotel registration. Had reservation info in a folder. Opened folder in front of the clerk with a $20 clearly showing and left folder open as I asked about complimentary upgrade. Clerk said she cou;d give me a strip view room but I would have to pay extra. I declined and closed the folder and kept my $20.
Thought that i was picking a good one with ‘SAYD’ but he was strickly by the book. Wanted extra blah blah blah. Paid for a 1 night upgrade to a P-room with a view ($120) and into a regular comped room for 2 nights but I was given a regular ‘view’ room after the move for free and they made a mistake and credited me the $120 so I got everything for free. Lucky me.
We had secured a great rate of $89.00 per night online. After reading about Paris on various review site I realized that we would probably be placed in a room that had not been renovated. My husband had the $20.00 ready and sandwiched in between his credit card and license but when he went to put his things on the counter the 20.00 went flying out and landed on the check in person’s KEYBOARD!
She clearly understood what it was for and was so nice, we stated that we wanted a room that had been renovated and a nice view of the Bellagio fountains. We were not disappointed. The room had a 42 inch plasma tv, was beautifully deocorated, clean and a great view of the fountains, just steps away from the elevator. We were in room 2503. The only drawback is that the Eiffel tower blocked the center view of the Bellagio fountains, but it was not a big deal, you could still see the show every 15 minutes and we had a great view of the pool below.
Checked in around 1 pm on Thurs. Had the $20 Between CC & DL. asked about Comp Upgrade , He told me nothing available , That The room would be ready after 3 pm , to pick up keys at that time . I came back 1/2 Hour Later and Asked the lady if My room was ready , she saw The $20 In My Hand . She said that That room was not ready yet ,and She had one that I would be happy with. I gave her the Twenty . and she thanked me . Never Give Up !!!
got to the hotel around 9 a.m. check in doesn’t start till 11. The clerk who usually handles the Platinum guests took us. i gave him the sandwich and asked about complimentary upgrades. He deftly slipped the 20 into his jacket pocket and gave us a “view” room. I’m sure our freebie room was going to have the view of the top of Paris’ parking garage. He mentioned the room we got was normally $60 over the one we were otherwise headed for.
Arrived later than expected (thanks Jetblue for losing my luggage!). The room was originally comped for 2 of the 4 nights on their standard “Classic” room, and the clerk Charles who checked me in asked for my ID and CC. Chatted with him a bit, then pulled a twenty out of my wallet and kept it in my hand as he was typing in my room reservation info. I told him that I was having my wedding ceremony AND reception in the Paris casino (no lie). Charles was gracious, tried searching for a upgrade but since there was a huge teacher’s convention in town, most rooms were already booked and offered a suite for $120 a night. I declined, and asked if he had anything complimentary available while holding onto my $20 bill in my fingers. He eventually found a better room with strip view and renovated (plasma tv, red leather headboards and tan micro-fiber couch). Think it was successful, so I handed the $20 over to him. At first, he said that he couldn’t take it, because he wasn’t able to get a suite for me, but i insisted that he keep it, figuring that it would be good karma and luck! Didn’t quite help at the craps tables, but He mentioned that I could try tomorrow to see if any rooms opened up, but I didn’t really bother since the room was nice already (view of the pool, Eiffel tower and Bellagio fountains). Good luck!
$20 b/w dl and cc. I asked for any complementary upgrades & the clerk told me that for an additional $45 a night i could get a bellagio lake view room. I said no thanks, took my $20 back and enjoyed my 4 nights in my standard room. The End.
Check in at 11:00 am, had the $20 between cc and dl, before I could ask for a upgrade she said she upgraded me to a newly renovated room that was ready and if that was ok, I told her yes and was on my way.
