    I agree with Liss. Just ask nicely, if it's available, they'll probably give it to you. It works, been there, done that... I heard this $20 trick worked for Las Vegas' buffet line, but I never tried since I think it teaches dishonesty.

    What I don't understand is that seeing as the going rate for rooms is 100-200 for average rooms, 20.00 would upgrade your room anyways

    I stayed at a hotel 2 weeks ago.. had it reserved at the AAA rate. I just asked the nice lady at the front desk what the cheapest rate she could possibly give me would be, and she quoted me a rate $34 less. It never hurts to ask..

    I've been thinking for some time that 2005 has been an abysmal year for deals when compared to 2-3 years ago, when it seemed there were great deals every other day. This so-called "deal" is the final proof.

    ***UPDATED Room Upgrade Trick***

    1. Call ahead and know the availability of the hotel during your stay.
    2. Go to your hotel check-in desk clerk. (be "extra" friendly)
    3. When they ask for a credit card, have THIS clearly visible with the credit card and ask if they can give you an upgrade.
    4. They won't say no.

    Cheers

    Geez, humor IS lacking this morning. I thought it was pretty funny even if meant it as a "real deal" ;)

    Hey guys, a better deal would be slipping a $20 to an airline checkin-in clerk for a free 1st class upgrade. If that does not work, you take it back and use the same $20 at the hotel on arrival. Now if that does not work, you use the by-then-worn-out $20 at the buffet line. LOL

    I am curious to know what kind of "upgrade" you would get at a buffet...especially that would be worth $20? I now live in Vegas...the "tipping" capital of the world! Yes, the $20 usually will work. Before moving here, we would come up here almost once a month and probably about 80% of the time, the $20 trick would work, especially if they had the availability. I would never recommend booking a room in Vegas thru a travel agency or discount travel site though. For one...if you intend to gamble at all...you are disabling yourself from possible comps on room charges. I am not sure about other places, but here in Vegas, no one's job is in jeopardy for accepting a "tip" for services. Here in Vegas, any job in the casino is open to tipping.
