    Hi everyone
    I'll be staying 5 days in Las Vegas, specifically at the Flamingo. I was wondering if anyone knew if it's possible to send me mail packages there for the days I'll be staying there, if I happen to buy something online, via amazon.com or other online stores...
    Can it be done? Would I have to wait until I know my room number? though that would make the times tight for delivery...
    Any input you can give me would be appreciated!

    There is a UPS store inside the Flamingo, I've had some lost credit cards sent there with no problem.

    There is some sort of handling fee that most (all?) hotels charge for receiving a package. The UPS store charged $5...Mandalay bay charges $10.

    Policy and reality might be at odds.

    Though hotels work at getting stuff to you, understand it is a large LARGE organization with many departments. Lots of stuff coming and going. Should be fine, but you gotta find it.

    Thanks so much.
    I guess the UPS store in the Flamingo will come in handy. Should I address the packages in a special way so they'll be held there specifically?

    I've had letters and parcels sent to me several times in Las Vegas at various hotels.

    Only hassle was a UPS package which was misrouted a few years back, and that was a nightmare to get sorted out!

    Yes, there is always a charge.

    I've had multiple shipments sent to TI, Paris, NYNY and Mirage. They all handled them for me and sent up to the room.

    This happens on a daily basis at the Strip hotels because of all the convention / conference business they have. I've never had any lost packages or mail issues.

    You should be fine.

    I've had it done in the past with no charge at Sahara, MGM and Bally's.

    OK, great. I don't think there will be any problem then. And a fee of $5 or $10 is acceptable (though I hope I'm lucky and they don't charge).

    I work in a large distribution center in the direct to consumer divsion (aka internet orders). The way our CS suggest addressing items going to hotels is:
    First and last name
    Guest of: Hotel name
    address
    zip

    Note the reason I suggest putting "Guest of" is incase there is a hotel employee with the same name and so they know its for a guest and not a mistake.

    I shipped a box containing the bulk of my luggage to Treasure Island last year. They charged me $30.

    Yeah, I also thought I should indicate I'm a guest. Considering all the staff they have, it could be confusing, should an employee have the same name. Thanks :)

    I used to do this all the time for trade shows and I just sent a package to the Paris. The guy at the post office highlighted the bottom part for me so it stood out that I was a guest and my arrival dates, etc.
    Hopefully this will be easy to find when I arrive on the 11th.

    On second thought I don't know if I should have put my confirmation number on the package, but too late now.

    Here's how I addressed my package:

    Paris Las Vegas
    3755 Las Vegas Blvd S
    Las Vegas NV 89109


    ATTN ; Guest Name
    Arrival Dates May 11-14
    Confirmation # . Host Name

    Thanks, I think I'm going to use the exact same format you used, but I don't think it's necessary to put my reservation number :confused2:
