Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Venezia Strip View  from  Run of House 

Checked in on a Wednesday afternoon on a Priceline run of house reservation. Got a male reservation clerk in his mid-20’s. Sandwiched a $20 between my credit card and driver’s license and requested a room with a strip view. The clerk stated that this would be a $45/nite upgrade, to which I politely refused and took my $20 back. After a minute of two of polite conversation the clerk said that he’d keep looking to see what he could do. Ended up with a strip view room in the Venezia tower for my Wednesday-Saturday stay – about an $80/nite upgrade from the base Venetian suite… sounded good to me!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Renovated Suite 30th Floor  from  Basic Suite 

Gave her the $20 between the cards. She immediately noticed it and said she would see what she could do. She had to make a call, so it was about a five minute wait, but a room opened up on the 30th floor. Very nice, good view and all the upgrades of the new suites such as automatic drapes, mini bar, flat panel TVs and a DVD player. I am sure that we would have been stuck on a low floor and with an old room had I not given her $20. Worth it!!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  33 floor, 2 beds, view, renovated, 3 tv's  from  Regular, 1 bed, no view 

I checked in w/ my Mom at 11:00 am. I’m 34 & she’s 60. I walked up & laid my ID, credit card & folded 20 on the counter. I said “I was wondering if there was a complimentary upgrade available? We are celebrating my Mom’s 60th b-day this weekend!” We originally ordered 1 king bed, no view, bottom floor. After a lot of typing he started giving us options. He said if we wanted to check in now we would get a newly renovated suite on floor 33 (36 floors in all) w/ 2 beds & a view or we could wait till 3 for an even better suite. We took the the suite on floor 33. I couldn’t imagine how it could have been any better. 3 plasma TV’s & one was in the bathroom! The view was great too! The clerk was also right next to the manager but that didn’t seem to bother him. He asked if I needed change for my 20 & I said no. It was very easy!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Piazza Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Reserved a Luxury suite (most basic room) through Priceline for $120 per night. Slipped the $20 under my credit card when I slid it to the clerk. She smiled and looked around, then asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. I told her it was our anniversary.

She put the keys together and told us we should be quite happy. We got a 1400 sq. ft. Piazza suite for our stay… much bigger than their standard suites. Granted, we didn’t get the view. Ours was on a low floor and backed up onto a dingy courtyard, but the suite was lush with a jacuzzi tub and it was twice the size of our apartment, so we weren’t complaining!

Upgrades with Priceline reservations are possible, just gotta get the right clerk!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  High floor (29), with view  from  Standard suite, low floor, no view 

Had reserved the basic room, low floors, no view. Upon checkin, handed over DL, CC, and 20, and asked if there might be any upgrades available. Clerk set aside the 20, typed away, and found high up room, floor 29, with nice view (per website, these rooms were 50 more per night). Only problem was, that next morning, could hear heavy construction noise from room renovations nearby. Called front desk, and they moved us to an even nicer room. Newly renovated, two 42″ plasma tvs, electronic window treatments, etc. Very nice.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Venezia Suite 7th floor, strip view  from  Venetian Luxury - conference rate 

I checked in with my wife in tow. When asked for ID and credit card, I put a $20 under both. She took the cards, left the twenty on the counter and just kept typing away. She then asked for me to sign an electronic signature pad verifying the conference rate. No mention of an upgrade at this point, I went ahead and signed the pad. The pad was now partially covering the twenty. She said that we were being upgraded to a Venezia Suite with a strip view. I told her the $20 was for her and she said thanks. The room really had a great view of the Mirage Volcano and the mountains in the distance.

I talked with other folks at the conference and they were on low floors with a view of the back of the Venetian.

On a related note: I tipped the bell hop $5 when we picked up our bags (they were being held for us after checkout). The bell hop had us skip the taxi line (about 20 people) and called the next taxi to pick us up. This worked 2 years ago at the Bellagio as well.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luxury vista room on the 33rd floor, strip view  from  Priceline-standard 

When the clerk asked for my ID and credit card I handed them over with a folded $20 bill and asked him to upgrade our room if possible. We were put in a room with a king bed on the 33rd floor over looking the strip. Great view, king bed. I paid $140 on Priceline. I feel like if I would have just smiled and asked for an upgrade with out the $20 tip I would have received the same upgrade.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Venezia Bella  from  Venetian Bella 

Put the $20 under my credit card, the clerk glanced at it quickly checked his computer said an upgrade was available. Same type of room but in the Venezia tower (claimed it was $45 more a night.) Had a view of the pool area. Once I agreed the $20 quickly went into his pocket.
