Room Upgrade Reports

Saved:  $200 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jubilee Grand Suite  from  Indigo Room 

Checked in on 12/18. staying for 4 nights total. got the room on a 3rd party site for about 26 a night. Arrived at about 2PM. they were really pushing the “early check-in kiosk” however the line was not too long and was looking to get this upgrade. i let a couples behind me go as i wanted to get the more happy clerk to better my odds. i then get called out of line by a staff member from the diamond /vip room and was told i could check-in there. walked up to the clerk and told her if there was any comp upgrades available. she took my cards and layed them on the counter with splitting the cards and moving the bill off to the side. she quickly got to work, typing away. i was originally was booked for the old tower and was told there was a room available in the newer tower with a Jacuzzi if id like to take it.

overall great experience for the first time trying it out.

will be doing this moving forward whenever i book.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Indigo Deluxe Room  from  Jubilee Room 

Was looking for a clerk who is smiling and somewhat enthusiastic. Ended up with the not so enthusiastic one. But after the $20 sandwich the mood changed instantly. She kept the $20 in open view on her desk, most of the other clerks who passed by did see the bill, so I’m not sure it’s reallt a discrete thing anymore at the Bally’s. Anyways, asked if there were complimentary upgrades, she said unfortunately we are all full (meaning she wasn’t able to put us in one of the suites). She then said she’ll have a look at what she can do, she went inside and 2 mins later upgraded us to the new tower in a deluxe room! Was a lot nicer room than the indigo ones we previously stayed in.

Definitely recommend this trick in Bally’s.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Jubilee Celebrity Suite  from  Indigo Room 

I arrived about 1:30am after my flight was 2.5 hours late in departing on Monday night/Tuesday morning. Coming from EST, my clock was nearing 5 am.

There were only two clerks working and I managed to get the one who I felt was most likely to be agreeable.

I was hoping for a Jubilee King suite, the Celebrity suite was a pleasant surprise. I ended up paying the resort fee, but I was getting a saving over $300 per night, it didn’t matter to me.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Indigo Tower Suite  from  Indigo Deluxe Room 

We checked in about 1130 pm. My husband went to the first available clerk. We were there on a dart tournament, so we were in the cheapest room on an already discounted rate with no resort fee. My husband placed a 20 between his ID and credit card and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. He went away for a bit and when he came back we were upgraded to a tower suite with a Jacuzzi and same rate with no resort fee. It really made the trip!!!

Had no target as the hotel was understaffed. Put a $20 discreetly between my ID and credit card. The clerk immediately pushed it back to me and told me they aren’t doing upgrades (this is a weekday..) I asked if she had anything better available and she offered me a $600/night suite…like seriously?

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Jubilee Room Strip View 

Checked in late on the Sunday night. Did not have a chance to select a specific clerk as there was only one working at the time.

We booked to Strip view rooms in the Jubilee Tower. We hoped at minimum to get rooms at the top of the hotel facing south to see the fountains.

We ended up on the fourth-lowest floor with one room facing north and one room facing south. We were not offered the chance to get the $20 back.

No go for us this time.

Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Indigo Celebrity Suite  from  Indigo Room 

No specific clerk targeted, as they were busy on a Friday night/day morning. It was after midnight. Sandwiches 40 since we were staying for 4 nights. Asked if there were any upgrades available then made small talk about being had a for the first time and the fact that Monday was my birthday. The lady at the desk said she hoped we liked our room. Got a nice surprise when we got to it. We had been upgrad3d to a Celebrity suite with a strip view!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Jubilee Room Strip View 

Checked into Bally’s on Sunday Night, April 9th with a 5 night Jubilee Tower King with Strip view. I provided the $20 sandwiched between the CC and ID and asked if any Complimentary Room upgrades were available. Important to note that room was free (except for resort fee) for all 5 nights. Clerk disappeared to the back room for a bit, and returned to inform me that the manager informed her an upgrade to a Jubilee Celebrity Suite was available for $50 per night, but could not be offered as complimentary. I declined. She politely apologized and returned my $20. Given that the room was already no charge, perhaps it was unrealistic for me to assume that they would have upgraded me further without me paying something … not sure as this was my first attempt at the complimentary upgrade, and was working from the odd (I assume) position of asking for a free room to be upgraded for free.

Checked in around 6pm. Acted like they were upgrading us. They pocketed the $20 but then got to our room and it’s the standard room.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Indigo Tower Suite  from  Indigo Room 

When I arrived at Bally’s at around 6pm, the front desk was extremely busy with a long line of people waiting to check in. I dropped my bags with the bellhop desk and went out to dinner. I came back to the front desk around 10pm. There was no one in line and I picked a guy behind the desk who looked like he was around 35-40 years old. I folded a $50 bill and placed it between my credit card and drivers license. He asked if I was there to check in, I said yes and he asked for ID. I handed him the “Vegas sandwich” and he set it down on the counter next to his keyboard. I asked, “Would you mind looking into any available upgrades to my room?” He replied, “Sure… let me see what we have available. How about a suite?” To which I agreed that would work out just fine. He picked up my ID and credit card, handed them back to me and put the $50 in his pocket. We thanked each other and I was on my way. Room was nice, big, it had a living room, dining area, wet bar, bedroom, two bathrooms, a dance studio (which seemed odd) and a really nice view of the Vegas strip. The only thing that would have been a better upgrade, is to get that type of room in the newer Jubilee Tower. But I wasn’t complaining.
