    Ad How To Do The Hotel $20 Room Upgrade Trick

    Las Vegas has over 62,000 hotel rooms. This is a trick known at Vegas hotels, but probably will work anywhere. Commonly known as the $20 sandwich trick. #vegasstrong

    Next time you are about to stay at a hotel, try the following to be upgraded to a better room or even a suite with a $20 tip to the hotel clerk.

    Note : People have a success rate of 74.57% by doing this.

    Step 1
    Watch this video which shows it being demonstrated

    Step 2
    Go to FrontDeskTip to see the success stories people are having at the hotel you are going to

    Step 3
    Call ahead and know the availability of the hotel during your stay.

    Step 4
    Have a $20 bill

    Step 5
    Pick a hotel clerk that looks like they may do you a favor and be friendly with a smile

    Step 6
    When they ask for an ID and credit card, hand them a $20 bill with them. It helps to know which hotel room you want to be upgraded to and just ask the clerk for it.

    lmao i can't believe this is posted as a deal. The person could lose their job over your 20 dollar upgrade. Just ask for a government rate or something. They are real cheap and the person at the desk usually never checks for my gov't ID. And you aren't putting their job in jeopardy.

    Um, there are easier ways to get a free upgrade. If you know beforehand that there are nicer rooms available, then just ASK. If you're nice, they'll probably do it for free. The key is to be friendly. They deal with all sorts of jerks all day, so anyone who seems intelligent and kind is a breath of fresh air. It probably also helps to have some degree of charm and be good looking. I used to upgrade hot guys for free all the time. ;)

    haha or they could take your $20, and then not upgrade you, so you would be out of $20 AND still have the same room

    There's a difference between a bribe and a tip. Front desk agents at hotels don't receive tips and wouldn't know what to do with it if they got one.

    Liss's answer is right on the money and you don't need to read anyone else's post. One exception tho -- you don't need to be a hot guy to get an upgrade. Be friendly, charming and understanding {in other words, give them the hospitality they're supposed to give you} and you'll be just fine.

    This one should be removed. It's very dishonest and could cause the tempted employee to lose their job.

    Agreed, gov't rate is the way to go. You can also ask for a handicap room, they usually have larger bathrooms and kitchens (when available) and sometimes are the corner rooms, which have more space to start with.

    No, Seriously? or drinking? Try Priceline or hotwire or just try about all the combinations of the hotel deals on the hotel's website. Yeah this trick might work on a bigger mom'n'pop hotel where the clerk is not the owner or relative.

    Also, if you find a good deal on a travel site like Expedia or Hotels.com, call the hotel directly before booking. They will almost always give you a better rate as they don't have to pay the fees to the travel sites.
