Im going to PH next week. Has anyone ever done the strip view upgrade? How much would that be?
During the week getting a Hollywood Hip Strip view shouldn't be hard by asking nice for an upgrade. The strip view Hollywood Hip rooms are pretty lame since the window is small and in a corner. The Resort Rooms are much nicer with double windows and dual sinks plus an extra 100 square feet of floor space. Last August I got a Resort Room with a great view of the strip by just asking on a Sunday-Friday stay.
Agreed, the OP should definitely try to get a Resort Vista room. These are the rooms in the two short towers that jut out, and have the best views at PHo next to the Panoramic Suites. The Strip Suites in the middle of the tower
are not bad, but the great view is isolated to the bathroom. Some Resort rooms have good strip views and some don't its a mixed bag.
If you can get a Resort Vista upgrade for $50 - 60 ish a night you should take it. $20 trick may get you a Resort room with or without a view.
Ask for the South tower if you want to be closer to the Bellagio fountains.
I'm sorry...Correction...It's the North tower that puts you closer to the fountains:confused2:
I do like the view of the fountains but once got a room that caught Paris and the tower, very nice too.
I'd suggest just hitting them with the 20 trick and see what that gets ya. Depends on just how much time you spend in the room too...lot of time I never even look out the window as its shower and sleep and get rolling again....I never waste a lot of money on upgrades cause I don't spend too much time in the room. That's why I am a 20 dollar sand which guy.
I had a fountain view comp'd through Hunter in the summer, it was amazing. The front desk, without asking, upgraded me to the Resort Room without the fountain view. Resort Room is only slightly bigger than the normal view, so I went back to the desk and asked them to switch me to the fountain view room. What a great decision as the view was the best I've had in Vegas.
I stayed at PH that exact same week, two years ago. A smile, friendly chat with the front desk person, and a $20 tip (I don't do the sandwich, but rather keep the $20 in sight as I ask about complimentary upgrades) got us the strip view. That's usually a pretty quiet week.
I know people always say that one window is small, but it was big enough for my wife and I to sit in it, comfortably, and watch the fountains--like a big bay window.
