Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Delux  from  Regular 

I thought that this site was a bunch of BS. I gave it a shot and it worked. Im going back next month to the Hard Rock and I will be giving it another shot.

Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Suite  from  Regular 

I put a $20 between my credit card and license, in case she saw it and was insulted. I planned on saying, “Oh, how did THAT get in there?!?!”

Instead, this girl asked, “Is this for me, sweetie?” I replied, “Of course. Do you have any room upgrades available?” …then it got good! She said, “Make it $100 and your suite with come with me in the jacuzzi when I get off work.”

Being Vegas, I figured – why not gamble this $100? Sure enough, my 2-day trip went from business to pleasure. Thanks FrontDeskTip!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe  from  Standard 

This was a busy, busy weekend as everyone seemed to be getting married. She said that all she could upgrade us to was a deluxe smoking, which wasn’t too smoky . Opened balcony to air out and it was fine.
She gave us lots of coupons some for free food and
spa use. Also 2 fun books which we used to eat at th Harrahs buffet and the Rio buffet. I saved over 200
with my coupons from the 20 tip. Well worth it!!!

It was no problem, the woman quickly took the 20 and hid it. She should have been in one of the magic shows. IP’s suites come with a tub and mirrors above the bed and the tub.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Love Tub  from  Standard 

Very crowded check in on a friday afternoon. The clerk was young and moved a little slow at first, but a supervisor walked by, saw the $20, and told her to hurry up and get us a room. Upgraded from a standard room (reserved on I4vegas), which I’m sure was above the dreaded parking garage, to a nice Love Tub suite overlooking the pool and away from the barely operational elevators. Nice room for a pretty disgusting place, I’d go back!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Basement of main tower  from  East Building 

It was memorial day weekend…which meant it was BUSY.

Either way i reserved a room in the east building of the IP. It costed 89/99/69 for fri sat sun of that weekend…pretty dirt cheap for a bunch of guys there to play poker.

The east building is basically part of their parking structure and is really terrible looking. So I basically upgraded from the crack whore house to the dungeon. Overall however, the room wasn’t bad. It was a smoking room, however, the smoke cleared out in a few hours if you just open the window.

The basement room was really really hard to get to. I had to walk through a maze to get to my room. But considering the prices of rooms during that weekend, we probably paid less for 3 nights than a room for 1 night.

Tried this trick for the first time in May 2007. It was the night of the De La Hoya / Mayweather fight, and I was staying for 7 nights. I checked in mid-afternoon on Saturday, and was told the hotel was sold out, which I believe to be true, because attempts to book another room through any website (hotel or otherwise) prior to my trip was unsuccessful. (It said no rooms were available for one or more days during my stay.) Obviously shorter stays and mid-week attempts may prove more successful. I did have a corner room (which was bigger) overlooking the pool. For a no-frills room center strip, you can’t beat location or price. It’s my first time staying here, and it met my needs, but was nothing spectacular.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Basic with View and 17th Floor  from  BASIC RENOVATED ROOM 

SAME AS DESCRIBED IN OTHER POSTS… $20 BETWEEN ID AND CC AND ASKED IF THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY FOR AN UPGRADE. DEFINITELY SUCCESSFUL, BUT I SHOULD HAVE ASKED IF THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY FOR AN UPGRADE TO A SUITE.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Deluxe Room  from  Motel Room 

Gave the clerk my name and ask for upgrade. Handed her ID and credit card with $20 in between. This is a very busy weekend. Was upgraded to a high floor Deluxe room in a tower overlooking the Strip. Good luck to you all

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luv Tub Suite  from  Deluxe Room 

Gave the clerk my confirmation info along w/ my credit card. Pulled out my ID w/ a $20 bill behind it. Asked if I could get an upgrade on my room–clerked checked the system and said sure I have a suite available. Handed her the tip money and she declined to take but still upgraded my room. Her name is Genet by the way in case you decide to stay there. It was an expensive weekend (St. Paddy & March Madness) and I paid about $200 for that 1 night. Since she upgraded me to a suite I didn’t really feel ripped off. I wanted to stay at Ceasars, but it was in the $400-$500 range.
