    Can confirm I’ve successfully done this at Hyatt Lake Tahoe in Incline Village.

    Flashed $20 between my fingers, said “let’s just say my fingers were to separate, would you have an upgraded room available?”. Desk agent smiled because he knew what I meant. Confirmed he could put me into a pool-facing patio room, instead of the “basic” room I had been booked into. Dropped the $20, he pocketed it, and I was off to my patio room.

    This was a weekend in mid December of 2018.

    any decent upgrade is well worth $20.

    Used it at Treasure Bay in Biloxi. Got moved from pool view to gulf view. From the reaction of the clerk it was her first as it was mine.

    Has anyone had any luck at Harrahs in Laughlin. We booked thru a special offer for flight and 4 nights. I think they pre-assign the rooms for everyone on the chartered flight, but hoping I can still get an upgrade to a renovated room for next morning.

    You will be greeted outside of the hotel with room keys, no opportunity to upgrade the first night. Unless you want to proceed to the desk instead of the room. I was satisfied with the assigned room so didn’t inquire afterwards.

    Tried $20 trick at Island View in Gulfport Ms. Before I could finish asking for a beach view returned my $20 saying they could not accept tips, but she got us a beach view room on the top floor. Lesson learned at the Island View just ask for what you want. 20200203_151244.jpg

    I looked at their room inventory online when I last stayed and found none. I wonder if they reserve these for 7 stars if they have some but limited.
