Looking at an upgrade (actually a down grade) at Flamingo

    Hey all,

    Going to Vegas soon!

    Booked in from a Sunday - Thursday in a Studio 2 Double.

    As I look at the rates for when I am there it is very interesting. All levels of Go Rooms (except 'Pet-stay') are actually cheaper! And I'm just looking on the website (not signed in) so that I get a feel for the rack rate.

    So I'm thinking about requesting a 'downgrade' at check-in to a Go Room with 2 Queens.

    Its a weird situation, because I'd intuitively I'd think that a Go-Room should be a more expensive room.


    My only thought is if I should swing for the fences first: and ask for a suite (as an upgrade) like the Napoleon Suite, Cosmopolitan Suite...or the preferred Forever Fab suite. (Is it worth a shot to try for a suite?)

    Why not sign in and see what your options are on the monthly rate calendar. I have modified my reservations on TR without any issues. If your not comfortable with that, just call the 800# and see what they can do.

    That's a good idea, but back when I booked this room (Studio 2 Double) they were comping it. So I had looked at a Go Room then and it actually was only available if I was NOT logged into the website - weird. (And it still isn't showing as an option for a room classification if I am logged in).

    As it is close to our trip, all the rates have since increased. But as I look at the rooms in order or price, the studio room prices out higher than the Go and Fab. Actaully, next on the price list after the Studio room is the Go Mini-Suite; Deluxe Suite; Royal Suite; Luxury Suite; Napoleon Suite; Cosmopolitan Suite; Forever Fab Suite; Metropolitan Suite.

    So should I try for an upgrade on a suite?

    Or a downgrade to a Go room?

    Myself, I would just stick with what I booked at this point. Roll the dice at check-in, hopefully you work something out. I have paid for suite upgrades now and again, and for much less than the price listed on the site. Enjoy your trip!

    Yah, the cost of switching before check-in makes switching now a no go.

    I'm just wondering how much I could get upgraded?

    There appears to be no rhyme or reason for room prices in Vegas!
     
    A/C in December!?
    Will give them a try!

    You are right. However, the studio room is consistently priced as a higher room than the Go room
