Anniversary in Vegas...

My husband and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversry while we are out there in Sept. I did mention that fact when I made our reservation at the Flamingo( it is already a 5 night comp on a Fab room due to our previous play in A.C. and Vegas). Is there a likelihood that we could get a complimentary upgrade at check in? Has anyone been in a similar situation ? Just curious what the outcome was and whether there is a preferable technique.

It never hurts to mention a special event, but be aware that everyone else is mentioning one too. :)

Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, first trip to Las Vegas, divorce,...the hotel desk clerks hear it all day every day.

Personally. I think you should pay and upgrade.

Our GO room with a view was great. I've heard nothing but the GO rooms should be had over the FAB rooms- every time.

I learned on TA the GO rooms, on Bill's side (back then), above 20th floor, rooms with even #'s- 46-60 had best views in the Hotel.

And it was a great view of fountains

I've stayed in a Fab Room on a guys' trip and it was fine for that. A clean place to sleep was all that was required and we could put up with the ageing Motel 6 style bathroom for a few nights. The bathrooms weren't renovated along with the rooms and you can certainly tell!

But for a romantic occasion with my wife, I wouldn't come close to considering staying in one. Definitely look at booking a Go Room even if it means paying. Comped isn't always the best option.

There are plenty of times when you cannot get an upgrade, either for free or paying for it. If your stay includes a weekend you chances decrease. You need to determine if you will be happy if end up with exactly the room you booked. If not, then book (and pay for) something that will work for you.

Would be cool if the "Moral Police" would stay out of these type of posts. OP simply asked a question pertaining to their situation. Didn't ask for the "Holier Than Thou" crowd to opine on paying for upgrades.
