Saved:  $$90 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

We checked in at midnight on a Friday. Even at midnight there was a slight line and probably 10 registration clerks working, so did not have a choice of clerks.
We asked for the clerk to waive our resort fees for our 3 night stay and she said she couldn’t do that as “they were now hard coded into the system”. I’m not sure if that’s true. She upgraded our view to a premium view and gave us late checkout. She then asked if we needed change for our money and we told her it was for her so she discreetly dropped the twenty in her pocket. She was very nice.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bella Suite  from  Bella Suite 

Sandwiched $20 between my credit card and ID and handed it to a younger female clerk. She instantly knew what was going on and said “thank you!” with a big smile on her face. She upgraded us to the same suite (bella) but with a view, gave us $15 gambling credit, and late check out. We were in town during the rodeo convention as well as the marine ball so she did not have a lot of room to give us since they were fairly booked. We were happy with the awesome view and late check out!

Targeted a younger guy, no particular reason why. It was about Friday around 9PM – and we said nothing to get upgraded, he just checked us in and started asking us what type of upgrade we wanted. Waived resort fees and gave us late check-out. Couldn’t have been easier.

We came in around 8:00am Thursday morning (early flight). We got a woman, probably late 20’s (she was the only one available). I handed her my card, license, and $50 between. She took the them and slipped the $50 under the keyboard. I asked if they had any upgrades since it was our anniversary (not a lie). I told her my boss had stayed there before (also not a lie) and stayed in the renaissance suite. She said she couldn’t comp that, the most she could do was comp the resort fee and find us a room earlier than 3:00 check in at no cost. The resort fee is $39 a day so in theory I saved $67 plus we didn’t have to pay for early check-in, but I was hoping $50 during the holiday season would’ve gotten me more. I would probably try it again but I wouldn’t expect as much. Before we left, she did ask if the money was for her. I told her yes and have a merry christmas. This was during the week of the NFR in town so they may have been booked up.

We thought we’d try our luck and hoped for early check in when we arrived at 12:15pm (check in wasn’t until 3:00pm). We were guided to a clerk automatically, so we didn’t have a choice on that front, but she was an older woman who took our $20 sandwich with no issues. We didn’t even have to ask, she just automatically said “I’d be more than happy to help you both, let’s see what I can do for you!”

We received the following: an upgraded, larger “Medici Suite” in the Venezia Tower on the top floor for those suites, great view overlooking the strip and the Mirage volcano, late check out (2:00pm), and free in-suite dining breakfast on both days (a $75 dollar value each morning). Highly recommend trying out the sandwich!

Checked in at 11:00pm on a Thursday night. I want to mention I checked in advance to see if the sands convention center had any conferences happening this weekend, there were none going on. We targeted a younger gentleman, had the sandwich pre prepared with a$50 and asked for any complimentary upgrades. He said he could definitely get us an upgrade. We ended up on the 3rd floor of The Venetian tower in the hospitality suite. I tagged this as Rialto because that booklet was in our room, however this was much more. We not only had a huge suite, with 4 TVs, a separate bedroom, and 1.5 baths…but also a private outdoor balcony. No view of the strip, but that was ok as we did plenty of sight seeing. We also got a late check out, 1pm. Which worked well with our 6pm flight back to Chicago. Great for our first Vegas expierence!

Cheers and good luck!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Piazza Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Checked in very late (about 11 pm) on a Wednesday and there was no line, so had to take the available clerk. Told him we were on an anniversary trip and did the $20 sandwich trick. He asked if I needed change, and I told him no. I was then offered an upgrade to the Piazza suite. I asked about complimentary late checkout, but as checkout was a Saturday, it wasn’t available (understandable).

Renaissance Suite – 35th floor looking over TAO Beach and the Strip ———— Bachelor party weekend! Booked the Bella suite for 2 people but 6 were staying. I am the best man and I was organizing everything. Flight was delayed 1 hr and I wanted to get there before the bachelor so I can try to surprise him. Got to the Ven around 445pm (way past check in time) and I was worried all the good rooms were going to be checked in. I lined up in the “invited guest” check in line because I used the Ven’s birthday promo code they have sent me months ago and it says that I can line up there. I was trying to target a lady (just because) but the line was so short (1 person behind me) that I had no choice but to go with a guy. I told the clerk how was his day and making small talk. Then I told him my reservation last name. When he asked for my ID and CC, I already prepared my $40 in between them in the cab ride and handed it to the clerk. I asked him very kindly right away if there was any complimentary upgrades and I said the “like the Rialto Suite” (since it’s just a bigger Bella suite ) …………… ((((be specific on the room type/name because if you don’t, you will probably just get a better view and nothing else. That means you have to do your homework on the rooms for that particular hotel. Don’t be afraid to go big. Doesn’t hurt to try)))) ………………… As he grabbed my ID and CC, (of course he already knew what was going on), he put the cards toward the end of the counter away from the cameras. Then he said he was going to to see what he can do and talk to the his manager as he was typing away (which he didn’t and didn’t even move). As that what was happening, the bachelor and his 3 other friends show up next to me. The clerk saw them and probably thought in his head that were here to party. Then I turn my attention back to the clerk. He then said this weekend is so busy that the Bella suites are going to be “all gone” and that I have this room available for you. He takes out a binder showing all the different rooms and shows me the “Renaissance Room”. I said I will gladly take it. He also asked If I wanted to have late check out but I kindly decline because I had a early flight Sunday. Also gave me a rollaway bed free of charge. Room was on the 35th floor overlooking Tao beach and the strip, one floor away from the top! Got my room keys and began a Epic weekend! …………….. (I really didn’t expect to get that room of a upgrade. I’m not sure if staying at the Ven couple of times help)

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Piazza Suite  from  Unsure 

Checked in on Thursday evening on a busy weekend. Just waited for the next host. Chatted him up and slipped in the $20. Asked if there were any complimentary upgrades for the weekend. He typed away and asked we we would be willing to try the Pallazo tower on the 32 floor with strip view. Absolutely! Was a very nice room and excellent view.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

This was a big nothing. I am an ambassador member so I am supposed to get a room upgrade anyway. I got what I booked and paid for but only a slightly higher floor which I would have gotten anyway. I do not believe I will go back to the Venetian again. It was just ok – and for that – I will stay somewhere else next time.

We arrived slightly early for check in. I chose the first clerk available (younger man – 25-30 yrs old at the Ambassador check in desk) and he quickly took the money without saying a word. I asked if there were any upgrades available and whether anything could be done with the resort fee. We got a lot of nothing and he did not even pretend to want to give the $20 back. He gave us a code for faster internet but I don’t see any value in that. He said that we were getting an upgrade but as I said, it was not much of an upgrade and I am supposed to get one anyway for my ambassador membership. We were otherwise charged the full ride with full cost resort fees, etc.

If I had it to do over, I would put the $20 in the slot machine rather than give it to this guy because he not only did not do us any favors, he failed to explain anything about the hotel and he did not tell us that we had a casino credit that we just needed to activate. He also messed up our check in so that the hotel charged my credit card an extra $863. After taking a lot of our time and giving us the general run around, they finally fixed it. Thank goodness I had proof that I had already paid part of the bill as a deposit when I booked! If I was someone who needed the credit on my card for other things, I would have been in a real pickle because it took nearly a week to get that bogus charge off my card. It was not an issue for us but I could see how it would really put a damper on Vegas if we needed that credit.
