    Checked in late on Jan 23rd. Diamond check in was closed. $20 offered at front desk. Could not get an upgrade even after she called her manager. ??? She told me to check with Diamond office in the AM. Went down this AM and was upgraded to a small suite with a P suffix after showing credentials. CSR at Diamond desk told me I did not have to tip, but accepted it with a bit of encouragement.

    Had a classic room, 1 King, booked for four nights. Monday 2/6 to check out Friday 2/10. Checked in ~ 4 PM on Monday, wanted the SB crowd to clear out some rooms. Gave the clerk the $20 and obtained a suite with a tower view.

    A little background. I am in Vegas for the first time in 9 years. I have zero tier credits but still managed to book a basic room for 4 nights, Tuesday-Saturday, first 3 nights free, $115 Friday. Reservation showed up as a pet friendly king. Did the sandwich with a very nice clerk. She asked, "is this for me?" and said she thought she could find us somethng better. Got a very recently remodeled room on the 23rd floor. She said it was done about a month ago and it looks it. View is of the high roller. We are pleased.

    That was probably the best $20 you spent in Vegas!

    Congratulations but we got a room on the 26th floor ( 2647) with the same view of the High Roller just by asking..The rooms I agree are great but would have appreciated a microwave

    We've Ben staying at the Paris since 2006. I've always used the $40 trick. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. If there is a supervisor hoovering in the background, probably won't work. I never take the money away either way, as long as they are nice about it. We usually check in super early 8-10am, we usually have to check our bags, but can come back and use a short line to just pick up a room key.

    Here's my best trick. We got a letter once telling us to call and request a host. I didn't think we really qualified for a host, but CET has phone reservation hosts for mid rollers? Anyway, I always bring my host a gift or gift card under $50, and every time she's gotten us an upgrade, until our last trip was a small suite. And, once she was able to "stretch" the length of my promo by a day or two so I could collect free play.

    She was pretty stunned the first time we requested to meet her, but a couple of years ago she got promoted, so very excited for her.

    I booked a end of hallway king room for 5 nights. I was checking in last night and did the $20 sandwich. She took the $20 and said "is this for me?" I kindly said yes it is and laughed. I didn't mention anything about wanting an upgrade. After about a minute or so searching on the computer, she says "I'm going to give you a complimentary upgrade to a suite. Now here I am in a newly renovated and gorgeous Le Mans Suite (1000 sq ft) overlooking the Bellagio fountains!!

    That's impressive for a Friday check-in. Well done!

    I always use the $20 sandwich at Paris and we usually get a pool/fountains higher floor upgrade but haven't experienced a suite yet...maybe this time!

    Chekced into Paris last night on a 3 day comp, platinum status. Gave the agent a $20 with my ID and card, agent asked if it was for him? I replied yes and asked if they had any upgrades available. Got upgraded to the Nice suite about 1200 square feet top floor room P33**. He mentioned room had just recently been renovated but if for some reason I didn't like it to just come back and see him. Just be polite, you never know!

    Hi All,

    Okay, I am convinced, I am going to do the $20 sandwich when we check in at the Paris in June.

    It sounds like it works almost 100%.

    Now, I am really getting excited for our trip.:)

    Let us know if it works! We'll be there in 2.5 weeks for 2 nights - checking in on a Saturday night. Haven't tried it, but after seeing the latest updates, I'm thinking it's worth the try.
