    Has anyone ever tried the 20/50/100$ trick at the Four Seasons?
    Heading to Vegas in 2 days :woohoo: and will start my trip with a comped 7 nights stay at FS.
    On my last trip to FS i didn't dare to try it, 'cause there were 3 clerks and just me at CI... :rolleyes2:
    Can't find anything here or even on google.
    Thx!

    I tried my best... but they didn't even recognize my 100$ bill...
    But I must admit, that they were packed due to a huge jewelry convention at MB/FS. (At the first morning I thought it was a Taxi-convention... :wiggle: )

    Nevertheless, i'm sure you will enjoy your stay in each of theire renovated rooms and the outstanding service. The pool staff... omg... if you're new to the FS, i won't tell you too much, just... GO THERE!!! :thumbsup:

    The countdown begins. I will give the upgrade trick a try when we stay and report back. They should not be quite as crowded but I assume a place like FS might not cater to that type of thing.

    Just returned from our Four Seasons stay. I tried, without success, doing the $20 trick and she politely explained they would not have free upgrade availability until the next night.

    Really enjoyed our stay. However, I think we may try Mandarin next trip.

    Looking to get some more feedback on a $50 trick at 4 Seasons. There only seems to be a sample size of 2 or 3 people/attempts in this thread. I will try it regardless but am curious to get a few more data points.

    If you do the $100 trick, which is paying the cost of the upgrade, they may have something for one night for you. :>)

    Tried the 50/100$ trick there once. The clerk gave it back to me politely. :)
    Think, there is no chance.

    Got an upgrade once for the first two nights of a 7 nights stay. Booked a One Bedroom Suite through my host, got it confirmed by the 4S' room manager... and was sent to a regular room. No suite available instead of the presidential suite... just for 3k$/night... which I took. That was impressive. The guy from housekeeping and I didn't realize each other being in for about 10 minutes. :confused2:
    Don't know who paid for the upgrade, but it wasn't me! :Þ

    IMO, the Four Seasons is extremely stingy with upgrades. I'm a regular guest and often book through AMEX FHR, so I'm "supposed" to receive an upgrade. Most of the time, I have to politely remind them of the room for which I paid when they try to place me in a lower quality room. The front desk staff is too young and too inexperienced to be working at a luxury hotel. I've had much better customer service at most of the other strip hotels including low rent places like Bally's.
