Sometimes you arrive at you Las Vegas resort hotel several hours before check in with you bags or the day of leaving you have several hours between check out and your flight; You don’t want to carry your bags around with you so what do you do with them? One good option is to go to your hotels bell hop desk and drop off your bags so they can store your bags until needed. If you are a hotel guest they don’t charge you for this service although they may ask if you are staying at the property although it is customary to tip the bell hops for this it’s up to you but $1 a bag would be fair. The bell hops will tag your bags and then generally give you a claim ticket for picking the bags up.
Many regular visitors to Las Vegas see the $20 trick as their first real gamble when they arrive in Las Vegas. The $20 trick works at your hotel as you are checking in, when the hotel desk employee for you credit/debit card and identification slip the $20 bill between the two items; As you are handing the items over ask if there is any free upgrades, most likely the employee will start typing away looking for an upgrade for you. If there boss is nearby they might just hand the money back but most of the time they will look for upgrades which could include things such as a Strip view, pool view or even being upgraded from a regular room to a suite. If the desk employee finds an upgrade they will tell you and if you agree then keep the $20, if it’s doing the week or non peak time you will have more of a chance getting an upgrade. I wouldn’t recommend trying this at a motel because being upgraded to the room nearest the ice machine might not be worth the $20.
