This story is awesome. Shannon shares how she used the $50 Trick at Aria to combine two reservations into one resulting in a two-bedroom penthouse. Unbelievable!
“This upgrade has worked twice for me. The first time was March 19th, for my 50th birthday. The second time was September 19th for fun. Both times I had four comp nights for a regular room. My brother had to pay the regular rate for the four nights. We both walked up with a $50 and held it within eyesight, and asked if they could combine our two reservations into one. Took a lot of discussion with the employees in suits and a lot of phone calls. Yes! The Two Bedroom Penthouse Suite! Sweet! My brother had to pay his regular room rate; he was paying anyways, which was $870. That’s it for four nights in the penthouse.”
This was a brilliant way to attempt to get a two-bedroom suite. It’s quite remarkable it worked for Shannon. There are a lot of logistics at play for the front desk, the fact that Aria would do this is really cool.
