I checked in at the desk and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. She placed the $40 on the counter (as almost all do) and said she would try. She made a call and made it sound like I was getting an upgraded Stay Well suite with extra amenities, but it wound up being the same room I booked without even a water view. She said if we had only stayed one night, it would be a suite upgrade, but she couldn’t do it the whole weekend—$40 down the drain.

“I walked up to the first available clerk at Bellagio, handed a $20 sandwich, asked for a room with a fountain view, and scored. Rooms are slightly smaller than Caesars’ Augusta Tower, but you can hear the fountain music through TV channel 22. I was here for two nights with one night comp, so it was $20 well spent. I watched water fountain shows every night.”

We think that’s a pretty awesome upgrade at Bellagio using the $20 Trick!

Here’s an awesome upgrade from Matthew. He booked a Standard Resort King Room at Bellagio was upgraded to a high-level Fountain View Room with the $20 Trick.

“I didn’t target anyone, just took the next clerk available. We were there quite early, maybe 09:30 AM, and the desk was quiet. She was charming, I slipped $20 between our passports and debit card, and as I handed them to her, I asked, “Are there any complimentary upgrades available, please?” she put the money to one side. After some tapping on her keyboard, she advised that she could move us to the 23rd floor with a full fountain view. My wife and I were happy with this as I had only booked a resort King, presumably somewhere at the back of the hotel, and the fountain view was incredible, definitely worth 20 bucks!”

Bradley checked-in a little late on the weekend at Bellagio, and it didn’t go very well. Not only did the $20 Trick not work, the hotel overbooked, but his original reservation also was not available.

“I did check-in at 7 pm on a Saturday. So I can see why I may have been too late to get any upgrades. Our Fountain View King room was only available as a ‘smoking’ room. So we got downgraded to a no-view double queen. So that was lame. They did add a $50 dollar credit to our room.”
