  • Complimentary meal (room service)
  • Free WIFI or premium WIFI (if the hotel doesn't already provide it)
  • Voucher for a free drink or meal at the in-house bar or restaurant
  • Late check-out

Can I Get an Upgrade After Checking In?

Technically, the answer is yes, but it is much more difficult to get an upgrade after the fact that you've already paid. They've gotten your money, so there isn't really an incentive to provide an upgrade. This isn't fair, but it is true and happens all the time. Your best chance is to ask for one well in advance. It can still be difficult, but you stand a much better chance because if your request is denied, then you may choose a different venue, and the hotel will lose your current business and any future business, not to mention bad reviews.

Potential Pathways to Hotel Upgrades:

  1. Decide which upgrade(s) you want. You may not view every upgrade as being beneficial to you. For instance, if you do not consume alcohol. A voucher to the bar means nothing to you.
  2. Contact the hotel and ask for the upgrades you wish to have. If you are celebrating a special occasion, be sure to mention it.
  3. Ask for a hotel manager or owner. Often the first person you speak to doesn't have the authority.
  4. Jump through the hoops to get in touch with someone who has the power to make decisions.
  5. Hope for the best! It's a 50/50 chance and may all depend on who you talk to that day and how nice they feel like being.

There is no magic recipe that guarantees you success. It can take a great deal of time and effort to convince the hotel to give you an upgrade. The good news is that there is an alternative solution to the low success, trial and error method. This is where DoNotPay comes into the picture.
