    Omg what an amazing deal! Good thing you asked! I would definitely keep it a secret from the FI...if you can, because that's a great surprise!

      Hot tub on the balcony sounds fun! Good luck keeping the secret, can you imagine the look on his face when he sees the room? He will be so excited!

          Wow that's awesome! We were just considering the same thing but decided not to upgrade since it was going to cost us over $700 extra each! I may have to contact the hotel!

              That's awesome! Definitely worth asking about :) I'm very excited because we're entitled to a free upgrade for the hm because our TA is associated with Four Seasons resorts, and we already booked oceanfront deluxe!!

              I hope we both get killer suites!

                  don't forget the old "$20 trick" (Used in Vegas but I think it is universal )

                  Basically when you check in you have to give your ID and CC -- in between the ID and CC, you put a $20/$50 bill and say, "Are there any complentary upgrades available? " with a nice smile on your face.
                  One of a few things will happen:
                  a) the clerk will quietly pocket the money and offer you the upgrade
                  B) the clerk will offer you the upgrade and then give you back your money. At this point, say, "that's for you"
                  c) the clerk will give back the money and not give you the upgrade.

                  There's even a website that tracks the success/failure of the "20$ trick" - http://www.thetwentydollartrick.com/

                  Tips: expect to be bumped up 1 room class, maybe 2. Don't expect to book the super saver room rate and get upgraded to the prez suite

                  I'm definitely trying it in Mexico :)

                      finzup - Thats a good idea too. I would be embarassed though if it didn't work. I blush easy too. :-)

                      Would surely be nice to have an upgrade though. Maybe I'll look into this option now and see if I can get a similar steal of a deal.
