No Luck for Adam at Bellagio with a $40 Tip

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.

James Got A Foutain View at Bellagio

“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!

Matthew Got A Bellagio Fountain View Upgrade

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!”

Bad Luck for Bradley, He Got A Downgrade

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.”

Blake Didn’t Get A Room Upgrade, But The $20 Trick Paid Off

Blake shares a story about why you should always try the $20 trick, regardless of how busy or what time of day it is. Blake was checking into the Bellagio late in the night, despite a big conference and an overbooked hotel, the $20 Trick paid off.

“I probably had everything going against me. My flight was delayed, so we didn’t check in until 9 pm. The front desk clerk immediately handed the $20 sandwich back to me and said they are fully booked with a conference. We didn’t even get our original king room. Instead, we got two queens. He gave us $50 food and beverage credit to make up for it. Fine by me since he gave me the $20 back.”

Jason’s Holiday Weekend Upgrade at the Bellagio

Even on Memorial Day Weekend, Bellagio provided Jason a complimentary upgrade with the $20 Trick.

“We arrived around 4:30 pm, and we weren’t able to “target” a clerk. I actually tipped $25, intending to tip $5 if she at least tried. I asked about an upgrade with a view of the strip/fountain. She immediately got on the phone with her manager to let us know she could get us into a higher floor strip view with a “partial” fountain view. Our room, in fact, can view the entire fountain/lake, but from an angle. Also, the Paris and Eiffel Tower is directly outside. Still a great room, and well worth the $25.”

Mike Asked For A Suite, But Only Upgraded To A Better View

Mike asked for a suite at Bellagio with the $20 Trick. He got a small upgrade to a higher floor but ultimately failed to get a suite.

“I gave $20 to a very nice front desk woman. I reserved a king room with a fountain view. I asked for a free suite upgrade. She went to talk to her boss for a few minutes. She came back and said no suites were available, but she will give me a higher floor so I can see the fountain better. I took back the $20 and gave her $10 instead and thanked her for trying.”

While some people choose to downsize their tip after failing to get the room they want, we feel its best to just let the clerk have the $20 anyway. Especially if the clerk has called her manager. It wasn’t their choice to not upgrade you.

Tom Asked For A Suite on Super Bowl Weekend

Tom made a big ask on Super Bowl Weekend at Bellagio. These kinds of asks generally only work during the slow season.

“I came in on a late Friday night for Super Bowl weekend. I couldn’t target any clerk because there was no line-up. My clerk was a man in his mid-30’s. I first put a $100.00 bill on the counter to make sure that he saw it, and then I gave my passport and credit card. Then I ask him if there were any complimentary upgrades? The upgrade that I was looking for was a Bellagio Suite, and I told him that if he can do it, I will tip him $100.00 bucks. He said that he could not give me a comp upgrade to a Bellagio Suite. Then I asked if he can give a complimentary upgrade to a Salone Suite instead? He said that it would cost me $75.00 per night. I told him that I was looking for that. He said the best he could do for me is a Strip View, but it would still be a Resort King room. Then I asked him if there was any Fountain View? He said that all Fountain View Resort King Rooms were sold out. At this point, I took his offer for the Strip View that was on the 15th Floor. But I took back my $100.00 and gave him $20.00 instead. I have done this $20.00 trick before. I learned that you should only tip max $20.00 on a same room size with a better view. Only tip $100.00 or more if they can give you a suite or better.”

Tom attempted to do something that is near impossible on holidays and big event weekends, ask for a big upgrade from a standard room. This takes guts. Most front desk clerks won’t respond well to this kind of request because their hands are tied by the powers that be.
