My First Minutes in Vegas

By: Chris Linch

So in January I went to Las Vegas and I have a tale to counsel you not to let your associates make telephone calls for you. We arrived in Las Vegas at the Mirage. Don't take this as me saying the Mirage is not a first-class hotel, because it is, the point of this is that my friend really hosed me.
We arrived at our room and walked in and our room was so nice. It was spacious, the view wasn't the best, but we didn't pay extra for a view. Next thing I know my cell phone is ringing and it is the couple we traveled with. Their key doesn't work. They came to our room and called the front desk. The front desk said that they needed to bring it back down so they could reactivate it. All the way back down they go.
They come back up and their key now works, they enter their room to find one big dude already occupying it. Quickly closing the door they ran back to our room, now they were mad. First the key didn't work and then when it did the room was someone else's.
My friend calls the front desk, tells them he is a travel agent, which is true, and that he desires an upgrade. They were very happy to provide him a room in their privileged tower with a jetted tub (which are repulsive). He said I am traveling with associates and we want to be on the same floor so can they have an upgrade also. The front desk for a very small charge agrees.
Well we get to our room, and it is half the size. We had a jetted tub, but the room was not near as big, and the lack of view was even worse. My friends of course are delighted with their room, primarily because nobody else was in it. I, on the other hand, wanted my old room back. Not to say I didn't get to see it one more time because I had left my coat in it. Therefore I had to have security come let me into my old room. They said that I had never occupied that room, and that was also a challenge, finally I convinced the guy to let me in the room. What a mess. Don't let your friends upgrade your hotel room, you get the shaft!
