Saved:  $$150 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  King Suite  from  Unsure 

Paid for the standard room for 1 night which was about $80 after fees. I got in at 11pm and there was only 2 females about mid 20’s checking people in but I felt comfortable that the sandwich would work. She upgraded the room with no problem. King Suite, no view of the high roller but you could see across the street at Caesars Palace Shops and the Mirage.

i approached the desk with the $20 sandwiched between my id and credit card. he saw it, and immediately told us something along the lines of he can’t be bribed. so i had to put away the $20. i explained that we were a couple and would prefer a room with a king bed instead of the cheapest 2x double bed room we booked. he gave us a deluxe king with a view of the pool. and i gave him back the $20 which he begrudgingly accepted.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Mini Suite Luv Tub  from  Deluxe room 

Was checking in for the weekend on a Thursday night. Got to IP around 10:15 or so and after a short wait in line got the oldest female clerk at the desk. Gave her the $20 sandwich, she was surprised, took the bill out and put under her calculator. She then said she was appreciative and would she what she could do. Since it was a weekend she couldn’t give me the full suite, but could give us the Mini Suite if that was ok. Since we were paying $137 already for the full weekend of 4 nights, the bump up for the mere $20 trip, So for $157 for the mini suite for the full weekend, was well worth it. great website and thanks.

Had a late flight that had us arrived around midnight on a Sunday.

Tipped $50 (Between I.D. And CC) and asked for upgrade.

Went from basic room booked on Travelocity and got king suite

2bath, Living room, and bedroom. Worth it to me

Tipped:  $30 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Unsure 

I did “the sandwich” with $30 and asked if I was eligible for a complimentary upgrade. The woman at the desk said that she was unable to take the tip until after she assigned me a room. She offered a nicer room for $30/night. It wasn’t worth it to me, so I took my money back and checked out like normal.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  King Suite  from  Deluxe King 

Was very busy when we came in about 1130 and didn’t have a chance to target anyone. The gentleman who waited on us I could immediately tell he wasn’t going for it. We put a $20 in between drivers license and credit card and he kind of laughed. He offered us a paid upgrade to the King Suite for $30 a night which we accepted because it was the room we wanted. Let him keep the $20 even though he offered to give it back, it was worth a shot!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe King  from  Deluxe King 

The clerk was a middle aged brunette Caucasian woman at express check-in. I am a young Caucasian male and I checked in on a Sunday around noon.
I did the $20 sandwich and politely asked her if she had any complementary room upgrades. She said we could pay $30 extra per night for an upgrade. I said no thank you and she gave me back my $20. There was a convention going on so perhaps that’s is why it didn’t work. #epicfail

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Delux  from  Deluxe 

I tried to do the $20 trick didn’t work. They only gave me options to upgrade for $40 for a love suite a night and all this expensive upgrades. I didn’t take it but they moved me to a remodeled room. No upgrade, she gave me back my $20 though.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  King Suite  from  Deluxe Room 

This was my first time using the $20 sandwich trick. I didn’t target any specific clerk, just went random. Handed my folded $20 with my drivers license and credit card, and asked, “Do you have any free Rom upgrades?” Within two minutes the clerk upgraded us to the King Suite from a Deluxe room. Tip, ask, and you shall recieve!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Mini Suite  from  The cheapest 

I booked a room for my husband and I on Cyber Monday and got a deal – $17.00 per night for a “deluxe” room. I have read horror stories about IP but the deal was too good to pass up. We checked in early at 1pm. There was no line up. Our clerk was young and very friendly. I put the $20 in my passport and headed up to him. After some friendly small chat I asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. He seemed really surprised by my question and was like “Um…” and I looked down at my passport. He noticed the $20 and again looked surprised and started laughing and said in an upbeat tone “Well maybe!”…a couple minutes later we were fully checked in and he handed us our room keys. He said if we didn’t like the room we couldn’t complain! (said with a wink and a smile). He knew it was our wedding anniversary and put us on the 10th floor in one of the newer towers. Our room was actually a suite! And everything looked recently renovated. New carpet, couches, chairs, TWO 40 inch flat screen tvs and a new king sized bed. We could not have asked for more and were so grateful to be given this suite for the duration of our stay!!! All of the staff at IP were amazing. We have zero complaints and will be back soon!
