I talked a woman (25 -30), gave her 20 Dollar and asked for a complimentary upgrade. It was on a Monday at 9 pm. She was really friendly and gave my husband and me the Calais Suite (also my sister and her boyfriend got the Calais Suite) 🙂

This was back on 2/21/09. There was a long line we were hoping to get a person that fits the profile as we have had luck at other sister properties with this. We got checked in by a lady who was mentioned by name before on this site and we gave her the sandwich she didn’t hide the $$ which made us worried but then she assured us we would be very happy with our stay there. We were the Lyon Suite was perfect living room/dinning room two restrooms master bedroom. Hubby had a great B-Day!!
Stood in line at Paris at about 10:00pm to check in. It was a slow week night in Vegas, but the same night the Aria was opening. I was motioned over to the check-in clerk manning the “Diamond Club” Registration area. I arrived and fanned the sandwich with the strategically placed $20, so she could see it as I gave it too her and asked if she had any complimentary upgrades available. After a bit of chit-chat, she gave me my room keys and off I went. A listed $75 per night upgrade for a $20 sandwich. Not a bad deal! Looking forward to doing this again!
Late Check-In.. Asked how busy they were and if there was any possibility of an upgrade, while placing cash on top of the desk. Clerk asked what I had in mind and I asked for Calais Suite. She did some searching and gave me a LeMans Suite on the 31st floor facing the mountains.
Requested complimentary upgrade to room with a view. Had booked with players card.Clerk stated it would be $65/night extra & declined tip. I kept room as reserved & ended up on 19th floor overlooking roofs,& alley with a view of Ballys. No mountains, no strip, just concrete– which I was trying to avoid.
Gave the girl the sandwich, when she saw it she made a high pitched “ohhhh” sound which almost made me crack up. She then told me they were out of regular rooms and ask if I wanted the presidential suite. I accepted. The suite is one of their best and I don’t think it’s opened to the public since you can’t book this online.
Checked in about 9pm on a busy friday, Paris had a promotion for Free Wii with stay and prior to leaving we found that they were all booked up.. We had reserved our room with the free room/ free Wii package and were not surprised to see that. No way in Platinum line as it was late, we got a lady named BO at the desk. Did the sandwich with a $50, she noticed it and said nothing.. As it was my first attempt at this I started to mumble a bit about just hopin for the best, she helped me out by cuttin me short and saying she was looking for something good. She said she thought we would be happy, she was putting us in a penthouse suite that she said would go for $1800 a night. Wow she was not kidding we got room 3383P an “NICE Suite” on the top floor. It was huge with living room, dining room, bar, two bathrooms, bidet and very large jacuzzi tub. Excellent experience as well because we order room service nearly every day when me make it back to the room and I tell you they really hustled to get our food the the penthouse, wait time would be 45 min to an hour but our order was always up in 15. All around awesome!
Did the $20 sandwich trick and was upgraded to a Lemans suite. Was all excited etc until I posted my results on tripadvisor when someone informed me that was standard for Harrah’s gold card members. Oh well, my wife and I loved the suite with jacuzzi tub in her bathroom. No view but who cares? We were up til 5am every morning and didn’t go to vegas to look at a bunch of flashing lights.
TRIED TO CHECK IN AT ABOUT 11:30 AM. DID THE SANDWICH LIKE THE WEB SITE SAID, AND I WAS TOLD THERE WAS NOTHING THE COULD DO BECAUSE THEY WHERE FULL, SO WE STARTED SOME SMALL TALK AND HE WENT TO THE BACK ROOM FOR ABOUT 10 MIN, HE CAME BACK AN OFFERED ME A P ROOM SUITE WITH A STRIP VIEW FOR $29.00 EXTRA A DAY NORMALY IT WOULD HAVE BENN $89.00 EXTRA A DAY SO I TOOK IT. WELL LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS WORTH IT , WE HAD A GREAT VEIW NICE ROOM WITH MINI BAR AND 42″ PLASMA T.V., THE CLERK GAVE ME THE $50.00 BACK AND SAID IT WOULD NOT TAKE IT BECAUSE IT WAS NOT A TRUE FREE UPGRADE, I STILL GAVE HIM $20.00 FOR HIS HELP.
