    I am staying in the Tower Suite at Mirage Mid February for 1 night then booked the other 2 nights in a regular room. Do you think it is possible to use the trick and try to keep the suite all 3 nights? Thur-Sunday? Would that be asking to much?

    I'm booked at Mirage for a Sun-Thu in June in a Tower King room. What are the chances that I get bumped? I'd feel like it was a failure if I just get a floor upgrade, I'm shooting for an actual upgrade of the room. Is the Mirage Suite attainable or should I just not even bother?

    Did the $20 trick at Mirage to try and keep a Tower Suite the entire 3 nights we were there instead of just the 1 night we had it booked and it worked like a charm! Girl knew exactly what I was doing made a couple of calls and bam boom we had the room.

    $20 trick worked like a charm at The Mirage for our stay these past few days. Upgraded from a Deluxe King to a Tower Deluxe King. Having stayed in a standard room at The Mirage before I'd not hesitate to even pay for the upgrade considering you get double the bathroom space, which is nice when travelling with a partner who takes 30 plus minutes to get ready to hit the town!

    My host booked us in at the Mirage, but didn't tell us what type of room we have. Is it worth it to try the $20 trick or just see what he gave us first and then try?

    Be careful with doing the $20 trick on a comped stay. If your hoping to get food/beverage comped at the end, you need to have played to cover the cost of the upgraded room versus what was booked by your host.

    I am leaving for Las Vegas next Tuesday and will arrive to the Mirage about 930 pm. I plan on trying the $20 trick. I have a standard queen room booked. I did it last June and was successful getting a strip view room on the 24th floor. I plan on asking for that again. Want to make sure others think I can't get anything more than that. Thanks.

    Since you're arriving on a Tuesday, I would ask for a Tower Room with a strip view.

    The rooms on the 24th floor of the Mirage are better than the regular deluxe rooms, too. The 24th floor tower deluxe rooms have a bigger bathroom that has two sinks and a vanity as opposed to the regular rooms that have a small bathroom with just one sink.

    I will be staying at the Mirage June 5th and 6th by way of MyVegas LP's. I am booked for a king Resort guest Room. I was wondering if the $20 trick would be wise here in order to get a better room? Not sure where the Resort rooms are located, but I would like to be away from any noise. Thanks for any suggestions.

    The resort room at Mirage is the standard room -- so they have them all over the place. I've never had a noise problem at Mirage, but even without $20 you can ask for something away from the elevator and they will almost certainly accomodate you. It's the same room, so you're really only talking location, and if sound is more important than view, there are tons of rooms that meet what you like.

    If you want an upgrade at Mirage, the room one step up from what you have is the Tower Deluxe -- high floor, bigger bathroom. Will be tougher to get, so this is where your $20 trick would come in.

    The Tower Deluxe rooms have been renamed to Resort Tower rooms (no idea why.)

    Depending on the length of your stay and the day you check in, an upgrade from a regular Resort room to a Resort Tower room is a fairly simple upgrade These rooms are on the highest floors, 24 and above, and are relatively quiet from outside noise. I always ask nicely when I stay at Mirage to get bumped up to these types of room and have received them a couple of times with not much trouble.

    Yeah, whatever they call them, the key is the floor -- 24th and 25th I think.

    That is correct advice....if I were you, since you have a host I'd call him or her back and just ask if they can get you a tower room. It's not that big of an upgrade ($$) that they can't do it for you. The tip/trick or whatever you want to call it is really a better process for the paying guest IMO.
