Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bellagio Suite  from  Resort King Room 

Checkin at 7pm on a Wednesday night for 1 night stay.

Very friendly older male agent. Handed sandwich and was upgraded from a “run of the house” king room to a Bellagio Suite on the 32nd floor. (no fountain view but hey beggers can’t be choosers!)

Very nice room and massive with 2.5 baths, a separate living room and great high views of the backside of LV city.

Was this an epic upgrade?

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Resort Tower King  from  Resort King Room 

Almost chickened out, but decided to do the sandwich trick (I used a $50). I was polite and asked about any upgrades. We were given the upgrade to a Resort Tower king, a free buffet and a line pass to get us to the front of the line. Definitely worth it.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Penthouse Premier Fountain View Suite  from  Penthouse Suite 

I went in early on our check in day at 9am. Since we already had a penthouse reserved I was hoping to get an upgrade to a fountain view. I didn’t specifically target any clerk since there were only 2. The girl at the desk was very nice and immediately handed the $20 back when she took my ID and card. After looking up my reservation she said here were no complimentary upgrades available for the room I booked but she would look into a fountain or premier view room for the difference. I ended up paying the extra $100 for the premier view as a surprise for my wife. I assume since it was a holiday weekend and I had already booked a penthouse there really wasn’t much to upgrade to but it was worth a shot. It also seemed like at the VIP check in they weren’t allowed to take tips since she handed the $20 back before looking at the computer.

Tipped:  $100 Upgraded to  Grand Lakeview Suite  from  2 Bedroom Penthouse Suite 

Tried to upgrade with a $100 and was unsuccessful. I think it was mostly because I booked a high end suite to begin with. I figured I’d make it a C-note and go for a Grand Lakeview Suite. The most I was offered was a different penthouse but with a better view. I declined since I was primarily looking for more space. I tried this twice before and it worked both times so I’ll still be trying it in the future. Just didn’t have much luck this time but I gotta give the girl a lot of credit to walk away from a hundy like that.

Saved:  $$300/night Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Salone Fountain View Suite  from  Resort Queen Room 

Checked in on a Friday evening. Got a guy… didn’t target anyone in particular. Greeted him with a smile. I’m Canadian, so I’m naturally kinda nice and stuff. Asked if there were any room upgrades available when I handed him my cc and dl with a $20 in between. Went from a standard room we booked through oribitz for next to nothing to a Salone Fountain View suite, which shows as a $400+/night room. Great stuff. Had a blast.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Resort King Room  from  Resort King Room 

1. I targeted a younger woman, 25-35, with an outgoing personality. I watched the check-in folks for about ten minutes before I made my move.
2. Time of day was around 12:30 pm.
3. I told her I was an old country boy from Juliette, Georgia who was trying to impress his wife. Told ’em I’d always stayed at lesser properties at the strip, but my wife had always wanted the Bellagio. Then I said the only thing that would make it even better would be a room with a nice view of the fountains. The clerk told me she’d go talk to her boss, when she came back she told me she could help me!

Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Cyprus Suite  from  Standard Room 

My wife and I were nervous to give this a shot. We decided in advance to spend a random weekend in Las Vegas and we stayed at a cheap hotel the night before in order to be a little more spendy the second night at the Bellagio.

We arrived at about 1:00 PM when the lobby wasn’t very busy. We targeted a young man, maybe 26 or 27, who wasn’t close to any of the other clerks. I slipped $40 in between my credit card and ID, and handed it over as I asked if any complimentary upgrades were available. Right away the clerk knew what was going on and told us to hold on a moment. He got on the phone twice and let us know that we would be set up for the Cyprus Suite.

We were beyond amazed with the room we got. We had two bathrooms, one for me and one for her, the most comfy bed I have ever experienced, an amazing view of the Paris Hotel and the Bellagio Fountains, a sweet living room, two TVs, it was amazing. Bear in mind that this was my wife and my first time at a five star hotel so that might have something to do with it.

We are convinced that dropping the $40 tip gave us a room that would have been between $500 and $600 a night.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Tower Suite with Fountain View  from  Resort Room 

We arrived at the Bellagio around 730pm on a Wednesday night for our 4 night stay. The check-in area was not busy and I selected a younger, gentleman who appeared to be smiling and friendly. I handed him the “sandwich” with a $20 bill and asked him if there were any upgrades available. He immediately said “thank you”, pocketed the money and said “absolutely, let me see what I can do”. He got on the phone and talked with someone about what a nice couple we were and was hoping there was an upgrade available for us. After about 5 minutes, he indicated that there was a fountain view suite available on an all suite and private floor if we wanted that. OF COURSE we wanted that. We thanked him profusely and couldn’t wait to get to our room. It was BEAUTIFUL and we walked in just as the 8pm fountains were going off. It was spectacular and now when we go back to Vegas, we won’t be able to stay in any less of a room. I checked when we got home how much of a $ upgrade it was, and those rooms go for $120/night than the room we booked, so overall an upgrade of $480. I would say I won on my $20 bet in Vegas!!! Thank you very much to this website for giving me the tricks to receive this upgrade!

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Standard resort room with Pool view  from  The Standard resort room 

I just got back from Vegas.. Me and friends stayed at Bellagio for 4 nights. It was our first time to Vegas so first experience at Bellagio. We had a special celebration that`s why we thought of trying Bellagio thinking the hotel will be a A+ to our trip. But no.. kind of disappointed. It all started at the check-in. It was a Sunday afternoon. We targerted a guy but the an older lady directed us to this line with this lady. To make the story short, we tipped the front desk lady (maybe 25-35 years old, long curly, brown hair) with a bill of 50$ and asked for a bigger room. But they were full booked (that`s what she said.. I cant know for a fact.. anyway).. So I asked for nice view. She took the money and said it gonna be hard be let me try. After 30 seconds, she said she found us a room with a Fountain room or Pool view I don’t remember. I just remember she said she found us something. I was gonna ask her to break my bill of 50$ as I find that 50$ to upgrade to a nice view it`s kinda expensive… But she didn’t seem to ask me if I need to break the bill or anything.. So I was shy to ask. We went to our assigned room. Disappointment 1 – the room was a standard room with the view of a disappointing deserted parking! O_o
So we went downstairs to look for her again to know what`s going on… The lady we got was not there.. So we spoke with the lady that replaced her and explained the situation to her. Lucky that lady was able to find us something (pool view) or else I would have complained to the manager or something as we felt cheated from the first lady. She took our money but didn’t actually upgrade us! Shame on her! Then, the hotel was so big, we got lost to get to our new assigned room. We asked an employee. That person redirected us to a longggg route to get our tower. Anyway. For the money we paid, we find that our room is not worth it. We had other friends that came at the same time for this celebration but stayed at Aria and Caesar… we visited their room and we regretted to pay so much for Bellagio when they paid less and the room was nicer and bigger. Who would know.. The 2 most important persons of this trip stayed supposedly at the most beautiful hotel but got disappointed. We didnt say “Woaw” for Bellagio. We did for Caesar, Venetian, Mandalay Bay etc for different things.
Other than that, we tried the buffet at Ballagio. It was good. We tried the pool. It was nice but the pools at other hotels were as nice or nicer. The best thing maybe about this hotel is the location!
We liked the Casino at Bellagio though.
So to finish this, we love Vegas and will definitively come back BUT, our whole group of 10 people agreed that we will not stay at Bellagio. 🙁

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Resort Tower King  from  Resort Room 

We arrived at the Bellagio at around 10am on a Sunday morning. We did not pick any line just took the next available window. I did the $20 sandwich trick and told her we were back for our 4th stay and we were celebrating our 31st anniversary “would you have any complimentary upgrades?” She told us that AT&T had a convention going on and there would be no fountain view rooms available. She did notice that I had been in contact with their concierge before our arrival (to surprise my wife with spots at Cypress Pool) and she made a few calls to verify it. She then offered an upgrade to the Resort Tower King corner room (she told us a $70/night upgrade) which gave us views of the mountains and the main pool area~ very nice. The best part is that the elevators took us directly down to the pool area…no need to walk through the shop areas. Not a biggie, but was nice. All in all a good score.
