    Got an email from Paris yesterday for our upcoming stay about upgrading to a strip view room for $40 per night. My question is this just a standard room or a red room? I have a standard room booked and while a strip view would be nice I dont know if its worth the extra money for the same room.

    Also what are the chances the $20 at check in will get me an upgrade on a very busy weekend? Thanks!:thumbsup:

    I had a Sat-Tues trip several years back and booked standard with a king. Did the $20 trick and was offered strip view with 2 queens. We took it and had a great view. We used the other bed to keep our crap on and all was well.

    I stayed at Paris last month. I booked a standard king room that was comped, Sun through Wed. I also recieved the $40 upgrade offer via email. Since I was fine with standard room, I figured not worth $40/night. When checking in, I kindly asked with visable $20 in hand about red room upgrades, and was told it would be $40 night to upgrade. I passed, but was quite happy with my standard free room. No view, but not an issue to me.

    I think the comment was in response to the person saying they were denied the $20 upgrade and quoted the $40 per night. I am guessing it meant that will be the way of CET, no cheap-o upgrades.

    Folks should refer to what they are responding to. It is way too easy to assume the post is in response to something totally different.

    Thanks

    I didn't see anyone answer the first question yet. I asked about this on a trip about a year ago and was told it is the same room I booked just with a strip view.

    You are much better off waiting until checkin and seeing if they have upgrades available unless you absolutely need that view. Always possible they sell out.


    $20 trick to a view is probably very possible. $20 trick to a red room is probably rare unless it is a dead weekend.

    Thanks so much for your reply it was very helpful! I think next Saturday will probably be very busy with the start of spring break and March Madness but I may try the $20 anyways and take my chances, it is Vegas afterall and that will be my first gamble:beer:

    Went back to see what Paris was offering for the $40/night upgrade.
    "You can easily upgrade to a guaranteed Eiffel Tower view for just $40 per night" Certainly not worth $40/night to me!

    I would also take my chances on a $20 upgrade-but then to me, view is a non-issue.

    I agree the view is not a big deal if its just the same room I have booked, we'll see what if anything the $20 gets me!:wink

    I believe what this poster is saying is the email for a upgrade for extra money is now a standard procedure for CET properties and some other hotels as well....we got the same mailing last year for a April comped room at the IP...we had a LUV TUB room and was offered a upgrade to a suite...don't remember if it was a petite or executive suite....didn't take the offer and tried to get a free upgrade when we checked in....said it would cost us more money then the email offer...stayed in the LUV TUB room which was very nice for FREE (my favorite four letter word)

    For me, there is no way I would pay 40 dollars per night to get upgraded for a strip view. If it was 4 dollars total for a 4 day stay I might do it, but its not important to me. As long as I can see some neon in the distance I'm happy.

    That could be the case at Paris, but not at Bally's. $20 will likely get you into the North Tower on weekdays. And the face value of this upgrade is usually $60-$100 for three nights. It's possible you can get this upgrade for less, but I have no personal experience over that. But I am 3 for 3 on the "$20 trick" at Bally's.

    The $20 sandwich and a smile at check in usually works for me to upgrade from a basic luxury room to a red room as long as they are not in a sold out situation.

    I would try it unless you must have the upgrade.
