Saved:  $$360 (before deducting the tip I gave) Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

We got to The Venetian after a long drive. Bypassed the drive line that said “Hotel Registration” and just self-parked. There was a pretty long line at the check-in, so we really weren’t able to pick who we went to. The woman that we got was in her mid-thirties and really nice. I handed over my ID and credit card with a $100 bill sandwiched between. She asked if I wanted change and when I said no, she said “Let me see what I can do for you.” Only took a few minutes of her typing at her keyboard to find out what she was willing to offer. Since the pool at the Venetian was under construction and the room we had booked (the lowest Luxury Suite) was on a low floor facing the noise, she bumped us up to The Palazzo and to the 28th floor with a strip view far away from the noise of the construction and away from the elevators. This upgrade is usually $45 extra a night. Then she asked if we were going to use the gym or any other of the resort amenities. Told her that I would only be using the WiFi, so she then took off the resort fees. All in all, we got a better room, better view and saved a total of $260, after we deduct the $100 I tipped. Definitely worth it!!

Did the trick and asked for any complementary upgrades. He slid to see what the bill was and said he can look. We had a standard room at the Venetian, and he upgraded us to the Palazzo 40th floor strip view, $50 dollar beverage credit for signature cocktails at the Dorsey. He came back and broke the $50 in $2, $20’s and $10. I said it was for you as a tip and he said he couldn’t take it because he is unable to waive the resort fee. I gave him $20 bucks as a tip just for the upgraded room. So it does work, it just matters their mood on the resort fee I guess.

Luckily received clerk at right end. Very pleasant to speak with and acknowledged the sandwich right away. Even asked if I needed change, which I declined. It was 3PM, right at check-in time. We were meant to stay on a lower floor, but were upgraded to the 31st floor with a few of the strip. Saved $60 (minus the $20)

Saved:  $$200-$250 Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Arrived at the Venetian around 10:30 pm on a Friday night. There was no line to get to the desk and was directed to a young lady who quite frankly looked like she was at the end of her shift. Nevertheless I slipped a crisp $50 note between my credit card and ID and handed her the sand which. She accepted the bill, asking if this was for her, to which I replied yes. She said “let me see what I can do for you”, and typed on her keyboard for about 6 minutes to tell me that they are almost booked out for the weekend and that there are no upgrades available. She said she would remove my resort fees, as well as give me a comp card for free breakfast at the cafe each morning. So I saved about $150 dollars in resort fees, as well as another $60 ish in breakfast cost. Was hoping for more to be honest.

Booked the standard Luxury Suite online and offered a $20 tip at check-in using the sandwich method.

Check-in staff discretely accepted the tip and immediately proceeded to search for an upgrade. He offered us a room on the top floor of the newer Venezia tower, overlooking the strip and added late checkout to our booking as well.

Very happy with the upgrade and the service we were provided.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bella Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

I didn’t target anyone I stood in line, there was a fellow there. I told him it was my first time in vegas and that I was scoping out spots for a bigger trip my friends and I would be taking in 2019. I asked him if there were any upgrades, he said he would look and see what he could do. I had a King room ordered, but a friend of mine was coming on Friday and later changed to two queen beds. It was about 9:45/10PM.

I’m looking at pool construction and trump tower. This is the worst. I gave him twenty bucks, he gave me two waters, and a room with a view of construction and Trump Tower.

Random Girl on the check in desk at around 3pm on a Thursday
I asked for Strip view room as we already had the luxury room non strip view. I was told it would be an extra $260 for the week ,I said no thanks and then slipped $20 into my passport at which point the girl said let me just check again and see if i can get you that upgrade free of charge.

We got put in the Tower and had an amazing view of the Mirage Caesers and Ti .

Saved:  $150 per night on a 4 night stay Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bella Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Went to the Ventian front desk. Went to the first available person. Slid $50 in between my license and credit card. Didnt say anything about the cash. The check in person asked if I wanted any change, I said it’s all here. She started typing away, asked if we had a special occasion I said it was out 5 yr anniversary. She ended up moving us to a suite in The Palazzo which was an upgrade from the basic room.

Saved:  $$608, but $1008 if you count the additional occupants fee being waived. Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Bella Suite 

I stayed at the Venetian and the place was packed due to a big convention.
Anyway, at 4pm I slipped the girl at the random check-in a $50 and asked if there were any upgrades available for my two, non strip view Bella suites. She said that she had to check.
She came back with an offer of a strip view room at the Palazzo nest door, but the deal started the next day and the six of us didn’t want to move so…

I then asked if she could waive the resort fees and the fee for adding a fridge for two rooms for four days and she did!!!

So $50 saved me $408 in resorts fees ($102 x 4) and $200 for the two fridges. ($50 x 4)
Plus she saw that I had two kids and didn’t add them? That was $50 each per night I think. So another $400 saved!

In conclusion, $50 up front got me $608 off total, $1008 if you count the kids discount.

Lastly, I only spent $30 gambling, so that wasn’t a factor as some say. I did spend hundreds and hundreds though on Zip lines, Virtual reality, $100 lunches – burgers and shakes. (Sugar Factory)

As an added bonus we missed hurricane Michael that roared through my city as a Cat 1.

Saved:  $$800 Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Prima Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Checked in shortly after noon on a Sunday for a four-night stay. There was a short line, so we didn’t get to pick our check-in person. Was nervous that we got a tough one, but when I handed her the sandwich with a $100 bill in the middle, she lit right up and said “I’lm going to take great care of you, sir!”

I asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available and she asked me what I was looking for. I told her the Piazza Suites looked amazing and she said she would see what she could do.

After about ten minutes in the back, she came back and told us that we could wait to see if a Piazzo Suite opened up if we were dead set on that, or she could put us into a Hospitality Suite that was actually a little bit bigger. We took the sure thing and headed up to our Hospitality Suite.

Our Hospitality Suite had the same size and layout of the Prima Suites, and it was stunning. It had a massive master bathroom, as well as a second bathroom. There was a standard mini bar under the main TV, but also an empty fridge under the full-size bar area that we stocked with much cheaper drinks from the nearby Walgreens.

The $100 Front Desk Tip was the best money we spend the entire time we were in Vegas. Thank you so much for all the helpful tips and suggestions that everyone has contributed to this site. Without your help, we probably would have just assumed the tip was an urban legend and not even tried it.
