    Hey All, first night in Vegas is in the books. So far, so spectacular! Tomorrow (Sunday) we switch from LQ to Luxor. I have a question, am I able to drop off my luggage before check in time, and have them hold it? I feel like this is something that is common place, however I want to make sure before I look like a giant idiot trying to doff my luggage off on the the hotel and them telling me to screw. You guys always come through, so thanks in advance for the advice.

    I haven't used luxor, but "bell service" is typical at all hotels. Of course it is also typical to leave some tip for the bellman to secure them. $1-$2 each way is not uncommon for the service. If you let them drag the bags all the way to your room, I would tip more than that.

    Yes, you can. And, as indicated above, a small tip would be a good idea

    Yes you can, and:

    --> If you drop off your luggage at the hotel where you are going to be staying (Luxor) when you do get checked in you don't need to go get your luggage from the Bell Desk, instead you can just call down from your room and they will deliver it up to you. This is the same as when you pull up in a taxi and the bellman gives you a slip for your luggage and then says you can either phone down to the desk when you get checked in or you can pick up your luggage from the Bell Desk when you are ready.
    --> If you want the Bell Desk to hold your luggage for a little while it doesn't have to be at the place you are staying. IE: If you check out of The Linq and are thinking there is a place at Caesars you really want to go have lunch you can go to Caesars and check your luggage at their Bell Desk, have lunch, gamble a little and then when ready to go to Luxor go get your luggage and then go to Luxor. Of course you can't go to Luxor and phone down for your luggage if it is at Caesars - you can only store your luggage and phone for it at the place where you are going to be staying.
    --> Storing luggage for somebody, be it for an hour or overnight or until they check in, is a common service offered by almost all hotels in North America, so to clarify on the responses above: you don't need to tip to get them to do it. They will do it because its what they do and the tip is a "for the service" tip.
