Jackpot! Julian Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


I was very surprised how easy it is. We arrived on 3pm and headed to the first available clerk at the desk. A very friendly black female (age 25-30) asked us about the passports. I gave here my prepared pp with the 20$ bill between the first page & hardcover. At the same time i said: "Is it possible to get a room upgrade?".

She recognized the bill, smiled and said: "Let me see what i can do."
A few minutes later she gave us the keycards to our petite remodeled King Size Suite with couch, kitchen and many more extras you don't get in a normal room.

I'll definitely stay there again during my next trip.

No Dice For Mary at Four Queens...
Booked Via Expedia


I tried the sandwich trick at the Four Queens hotel downtown on Fremont St in Las Vegas. I was staying for 28 days on an Expedia prepaid lowest room rate. I was checking in on a Thursday about 2PM. I had placed $200 between the credit card and drivers license with both Bills showing about half inch. I asked if I could have a complimentary upgrade to a 2 room suite as I placed the $200 sandwich on the counter more than half way to her. She was studying the computer screen and glanced at the sandwich. She said she could not put me in a suite because they were all booked up. I then asked for a room close to the elevator in the north tower away from the street as I took back the sandwich and made a small show of the $200. I got the smaller room I asked for and did not tip. I went back the next Monday with $400 in the sandwich and asked for an upgrade to a two room suite. I saw him notice the Bills. The man said he would like to help me, but could not since I was staying so long, and that the hotel managers are the only ones that could help me, due to the amount of time. He said he could help me for a few nights, but the managers like to provide the suites to the high rollers. I said I understand and thank you for trying and went back to the small room with $400 for the rest of the stay.

Jackpot! bill Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


at check in i put $20 in my passport with credit card and asked for comp upgrade. i was stoked when she put me in a jazuzzi suite on the 14th floor. Very nice room with huge tub in mini living room. IMHO....downtown is better for people looking to gamble, eat, and get your drink on for a lot cheaper without the "Strip" hoop-la.

No Dice For Neil at Four Queens...


Upon check in, asked for a comp. upgrade. She looked and said there were none. She mentioned there was a big slot tourny which was most likely the problem. She said any other time would be okay. She sounded legitimate. Maybe next time. Sorry as I am typing this in my 4 Queens room righr now on my phone.

No Dice For B J at Four Queens...


Arrived around 6pm for a 4 night stay at the Four Queens hotel/casino. 3 clerks were working the desk. I offered the "sandwich" to the clerk and asked for a complimentary room upgrade. She typed for awhile into her computer before going to talk to another clerk (or maybe manager). She came back looked a little more, and then very apologetically told me that she could not upgrade me due to alot of Woodstock tribute activities occurring this weekend on Fremont Street. The best part...she returned the $20!! That was unexpected. I thanked her for trying and for returning the tip. I could tell that she really wanted to upgrade me, but just couldn't under the circumstances. My first "PUSH" while in Vegas came at the check-in desk. Unfortunately, there were not very many more pushes (or wins) for that matter for the remainder of the trip.

Jackpot! S B Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


Female clerk, looked surprised when she saw $20 sandwiched between the ID and CC, I calmly asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available. She smiled, and typed away for some time. She informed me that she was moving me to the floor with suites, and gave me a room key, as well as a free parking pass for the extent of our 4-day stay. Suite was huge, had a bunch of perks and definitely worth the tip. Best bet in vegas!

Jackpot! GDL Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


Arrived about 8:00PM. This is probably the slowest week of the year in Vegas, right after the rodeo leaves town, so I had high hopes. Slipped her the $20 sandwich and asked if there were any complementary upgrades available. She never changed her expression, and even apologized because it was a smoking room. Ended up with a 2 room suite with a huge jacuzzi in the living room, 14th floor.

Jackpot! John H Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


Did the trick and asked simply "Do you have any complimentary upgrades?" The clerk's eyes lit up and began searching. The funny part was the supervisor told the clerk it was not ok to upgrade us based on the fact that we had 4 days booked straight and on top of that it was through a discount website (Expedia).

When the supervisor left, she upgraded us anyways, took the 20, and told us to say if anybody asked that I was on my honeymoon. LOL.

This trick works! Best bet when entering Vegas!

Said it was my first time staying there. Gave the "sandwich" to her. She said, "Oh, I'm sure you will like this room"...and laughed all the way to the bank. Lost my first bet in Vegas, and kept losing.

Jackpot! Brian Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


Arrived early (10:45am), front desk moderately busy. Three clerks working, all were serving guests, and there were three in line behind me. I had booked 3 nights (Sun - Tues) through hotels. Got called to the desk, was told that all rooms were still being cleaned. Inquired about upgrade, clerk said there were upgrade rooms ready now. She asked for ID and credit card, handed her the sandwich with credit card on top. She hadn't seen the 20 until now. She gave a muffled, excited yelp, nodded her head and began typing furiously. Requested high floor, smoking, got suite on 18th (wanted Jacuzzi suite, but didn't want to risk appearing greedy by asking) in South tower. View of Fremont, window facing north (perfectly acceptable to us). Total cost for 3 nights in suite, including $20 'upgrade fee' was $149.00.

No Dice For 2nd Trip To Vegas at Four Queens...


Was getting married the next day, and with that and the $20 tried to get an upgrade. Was told "We are sold out" in a manner that I was an idiot for not knowing that and refused the upgrade. Worked out fine in the end, our room had an awesome view of Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience. Had a wonderful time anyway and will still try again next time!

Looked for the same clerk as last time, but while I was in line she left for lunch so I tried a different clerk, same result, 20 went straight to his pocket and he said "Youre a pretty big guy , you need some room to strech out I will give you a room that has a little more space" I asked him if it was compairable to the room no. I had last time and he said same room exactly, different floor and I said Thank YOU.

Jackpot! Dave M. Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


I handed clerk a folded $20 between credit card and ID and asked for a complimentary upgrade. She set it down, did some research, and told us all suites with 2 beds were sold for the evening but she had a King with a sofabed. After discussing it with my friend we decided to take it and just take turns on the bed. Nice room, dual vanity sinks, bar, and granite topped nightstands.

Jackpot! Tvshooter Got A Four Queens Room Upgrade


Got in late night,tired just went to my room.It was next to a water pipe that you could hear the water running a huge toilet running all night.
Next morning I asked to move and was told no problem,but ask when I came in after my convention so they'd know what rooms were available.
Got back about 4pm,the desk clerk looked and saw the earlier request.I asked if another room in the nicer tower was available,and kind of held a 20 in my palm slightly out.He didn't see it,but put me in the tower room.I flat handed him the 20 and said thanks.
As I walked away I heard him call my name and he motioned me to another computer and said"I think I can do better"....and gave me a ver nice mini suite.
