    Through the Total Rewards site, we can book a Wednesday - Wednesday Roman room at Caesars for about $125 total. I know the Roman rooms are the least desirable, but I was wondering how likely it would be to get an upgrade -- either by just asking or using the $20 tip.

    If an upgrade is not available, how is the location of the Roman rooms in relation to the casino floor, pool, and strip access? Really just wondering if we should book the Roman room or go elsewhere.

    Thanks for any tips/advice! It's very much appreciated. :nworthy:

    What are the exact dates of your travel? The answer will probably be different for a Wed-Wed that includes xmas and nye, vs a random week in February.

    If you didn't get upgraded and you spend any quality time in your room, you would probably want to stay elsewhere. What is the rate differential to book in the forum or palace towers?

    We would be traveling 4/28 - 5/7. The Palace towers were not available and the rate differential for Forum is about $350 difference. The Forum rates wouldn't break us, by any means, but I just wondered if I booked the Roman if maybe I would actually have a good possibility of getting upgraded to one of the other towers.

    thanks for responding

    I have always had good luck at Caesars with the $20 trick. Book the lowest room, tell the clerk exactly what you want and slip them $20 with your license and credit card. I ask for Augustus towers, high floor, facing strip and get it every time. I haven't been there since the new tower has been opened but the Augustus is great...right near strip and can take the hallway to the left after exiting elevators right to the pool.

    7 nights for $125 total in Caesars? I assume you must gamble to get those kind of rates through as weekend.

    Yes definitely the least desirable room of the bunch, for what they charge normally... can be considered GROSSLY and almost criminally overpriced for such a standard room...that rate is incredible :)

    Showing up on a Wednesday has to give you a good chance of an upgrade. I was offered a free upgrade from a studio to a 1BR at Cosmo on a Weds morning checking in - an upgrade to a wraparound was $105/night, but when I said no, she said I can probably make a call and get that down to $85. Depending on occupancy at Caesars, you should be able to score an upgrade.

    As for staying with the Roman Tower, unless you really love Caesars I would say the standard room at Planet Hollywood is nicer than the Roman Tower room.

    Yes, that rate is due to my gambling. Comped nights and reduced rates for non-comped. I was pretty surprised, as the rates just dropped again for me. We were looking at Paris, as we could get the same dates for $50 total. However, I guess they are not available for comped nights anymore because it jumped up to $550. So, I was looking at other hotels and saw Caesars Roman for $125.

    Good to know that requesting an Augustus tower room is not out of the question. We will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary, so an upgrade would be great. Normally a room isn't highest on our priority list (wouldn't go as far as staying at Quad -- I do require clean and comfortable), but since we are celebrating, a nice relaxing room may be just what we need. Would love to get a room with a jetted tub.

    Thanks everyone for the info! This board has some of the greatest advice and people yet! :nworthy::nworthy:

    I think you'll be fine with your travel dates, especially if you let them know it is your anniversary. Not sure what your card level is at cET, but that could help too. I'd take the gamble. Worse case scenario still a great strip location and you won't spend much time in the room anyhow.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Doesn't sound like I'll have too much trouble trying for an upgrade. When the time comes for booking (have to wait on husband's vacation request approval time - January), I'll book the Roman room and hope for the best.

    Thanks again :nworthy::nworthy::nworthy:

    If you really really were hoping for Paris wait and check back in a couple days. A couple weeks ago it did the same thing for me. Had paris 6 nights for like $85 total then checked the next day and no comps at all. I waited checked back in a few days and the comps were backed... Then I made sure to book to room!!! Love Paris!!!!!!

    Thanks for the advice.

    What if I go ahead and book though and have to cancel and rebook. Would I still have the same rates or would it have to be rebooked with whatever rates are available at that time? I haven't been to Vegas in 4 years, and we didn't have comps then, so this is all new to me.

    Thanks, too, for the advice about Paris. That's where I really had my heart set on staying, so I'll keep an eye out for that to pop back up.

    You all have been so very helpful. If anyone knows about the booking/cancelling/rebooking issue, please let me know.

    Yes, I do have a TR card. Well, a players card. I don't have the TR credit card.

    You should be able to book, cancel and rebook as many times as you want up to the final cancellation date. The rates change constantly, hence the need to book as soon as you see a rate you are willing to pay so you have it locked in. Then you can keep checking the rate calendar to see if something better comes up and rebook. I think to rebook, it may be better to call the 800 number and have your reservation changed. If you see a better rate and cancel the booking you have, when you go back to book, the better deal you saw could have changed already and you can't have multiple bookings at the same time for the same dates. I've never actually done this as our stays are always comped, but this is the knowledge I have gleaned from the good people here.
