    no tries? should I save my $20 and my pride?

    Gonna stay at GG later this month for the 1st time. I chose it for the location to the downtown beerfest. I'm really not expecting a great room. An upgrade would be nice and a crisp $20 seems like way to go. Has anyone tried the trick at the GG? :beer:

    Never tried, but I don't really think it will help. There are two types of rooms at GG: the regular "old" rooms, and the "newer" suites. I don't think a $20 will get you in a suite, since there are only 6 of them in the hotel. Though I have been wrong before.

    I don't know why but I think there's more than 6. I've stayed in them and use them to sleep for a couple of hours or take a new friend up there with me when I am to toasted to go back to the strip.

    Has anybody confirmed if there are more than 6 suites or has anybody ever gotten an upgrade?

    There are 16 suites, 2 of which are penthouses.

    You can buy an upgrade to a suite by paying the difference in your comped room rate & the suite room rate...oh, and still no resort fee, since you're still on a comp.
    If you know that you're going to be giving them a lot of play, it is possible to get those upgrade charges comped on the back-end... so, something to consider!
