Here in the states, slipping the front desk agent a $20 bill at check in (following polite pleasantries of course) can go a long way.
Would the same gesture work in Seville? Staying 2 nights at Hotel Alfonso XIII...booked at a rate of 285 eur/night including 2 daily breakfasts, champagne and flowers direct from their website. I booked the basic "deluxe" 2 singles.
Ideally, I'd like a deluxe view suite (or even a junior suite, which is a considerable upgrade. Do you thing giving the front desk agent 20 EUR or even 50 EUR would maybe get me the upgrade, assuming I am pleasant beforehand?
Anyone try this? Or have any thoughts in general? I'd love to hear what you think!
