Discussion in '$20 Trick Section' started by Sonya, Apr 28, 2015.
NYNY and Golden Nugget are the only resorts at which I have never had success with the tip.
Tried it hear a few years back, the receptionist was was very friendly and was asking about our honeymoon, we got an upgrade but don’t know was it as a result of the tip or the honeymoon!
What room am I aiming for with the $20 trick? I'm staying at NYNY May 27th - 31st in a "Park Premier King Room". My basic requests are these:
And one King bed, not two doubles.
I obviously want to shoot for more than a standard room, which I believe the Park Premier is. Any suggestions on what type of room I should ask for? Thanks in advance!
I've never been able to get an upgrade at NYNY with the $20 sandwich, but, it's always worth a shot. Maybe ask for a Madison Ave. King (larger but less outlets) or spa suite w/ a fridge? I feel like asking for an upgraded room with a fridge gives you a better chance of getting a free fridge for the stay if they can't give you a room. On a side note, if you want a free fridge you can say you have medications that require refrigeration and they will accommodate you. I really do need a refrigerator for my meds and never been asked to verify (ex. show them the medication) at check in anytime I have stayed there.
Park premier rooms look to be the second tier, with Park Avenue rooms being the basic. Not sure about the fridge, but the one you have should check all the other boxes.
An easy upgrade would be to a view room, but I'd shoot for a Spa suite or Marquis suite. Another more than that and you'd be lucky.
You can try for Spa Suite, or Marquis Suite. Both have jetted tub. Marquis suite is a bit bigger with a divider between the tub and room. Next up would be one bedroom luxury suite. All of them have jetted tubs and king beds.
Thanks, all! I am going for a Spa room. The set-up of the Jacuzzi in the main room is hilarious and fun!
@EastCoastVegasFan! - if you don’t have a fridge in your room, order one for your “medication” They won’t charge or ask. Tell them you need a big one. Player Suites come with unstocked fridges.
Unless you are going for a suite, there really isn't much difference between the other rooms.
Even being given a room with a strip view isn't really an upgrade to me. NYNY doesn't have many, if any, fantastic strip views.
