Room Upgrade Reports

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 .

While i was in the elevator heading down to the lobby floor I placed a $20 bill in between my id and credit card so i wouldnt be seen arranging it while waiting in line. I was next in line waiting, then 4 new cashiers opened up in a row. I chose the one at the end because I figured it was a fifty percent less chance that the other cashiers would see what was going on. I got up to the counter and was extremely nervous. He asked for my id and credit card and i handed him the sandwich. I froze though and didnt ask for any upgrades or was too scared to say anything. The next 10 seconds I mentally blacked out. 30 seconds later he said “you are available for a free upgrade” or something to that nature. We have a room available with a great view of the strip, with a living room area with a sofa couch w/ a pullout bed. Then I asked for 2 beds for me and my friend. He said no problem and is there anything else you guys need. I really wanted to push my limits for the piazzo suite but I was way too nervous and I just couldnt get the words out of my mouth. But i got to the room and figured out that it was the bella suite. I originally ordered the cheapest room (luxury suite). Now that i know what to expect i will be going for the piazzo suite in december. Thank you.

We got there on Friday night at around 10 pm and there was a line as well as a ton of people working the counter. We looked to see who seemed the friendliest and were hoping to get this person. Luckily for us, we did! He asked for DL and CC and we sandwiched the $20 between then and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. He said, “let me see what I have.” We explained what we were doing there (just a one-night trip to have a little fun) and that it was our first time staying at the Venetian. He said that he didn’t have anything there, but he could look at the Palazzo if we want. We agreed and he kept typing. We told him that we were leaving on Saturday evening around 8 pm and then presented what he found.

He said that he could give us a suite on a higher floor as well as a room with a view. In addition (I’ve never received this one before in all of my times doing the “sandwich”), he was able to get us a late check-out without a charge. The time of check-out: 5:30 pm!! I have NEVER experienced that before and it was clutch because we were still able to sleep in, play at the casino, and leave our bags in the room until we were ready to head to the airport.

Stayed for 5 nights and check in with $20 and got upgraded view. But also did the $20 dollar trick and said “I didn’t have chance to use the amenities can you do something about the resort fee”. He refunded resort fee for all nights so $200+ back.

I was directed from the line to a young lady who was working the desk and she asked for my ID and CC. I handed her what she asked for, with a $20 folded on top in plain sight. She grabbed it and started typing. I proceeded to inform her that we have one extra person with us, going to be staying in the room, and that I hoped she could accommodate us. Me and my father booked the room but my mom later decided to tag along on our trip. She told me that it’s no problem and she set us up with a premium view suite with a fold out couch bed. She then asked if we were planning to use the gym or the wifi and I said only the wifi. She then informed us that the resort fee would be comped, and she told me to pull out my phone. She assisted me with comp wifi login and never mentioned the “extra person fee” of $50 per day. She gave us three room keys and off we went. Savings of ~$100 per day and we were staying for three days. The room is very nice and the wifi is fast AF.

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.

I checked in on Sunday about 10:45 p.m. There was no line, so I was just waiting for the next available desk person.

After we said hello, I asked the nice woman if I was eligible for any complimentary upgrades. I handed the nice woman my credit card, $40, ID, and Player’s Card. She took the “sandwich” and played it real cool–I wasn’t sure that she even saw it!

She poked around on her computer a bit and then gave me the good news: I was being upgraded from the Venetian Luxury Suite to the Palazzo Bella Suite! It has more square footage, oversize bathroom, generous living area, a view of the Strip, and 2 queen beds. She also gave me late checkout (which I always ask for, so this was just a bonus)!

It’s a lovely room and I totally feel spoiled!

Didn’t target any specific clerk. Handed $40 in between ID and CC. Was originally booked for Venetian on low floor, they upgraded us to higher floor on palazzo which has bigger rooms and at the time pools were not under construction like in Venetian. Giant suite- very nice
