    I can't find the power adapter to my netbook and I don't have time to get one into home since I am leaving tuesday. Thinking about ordering from Amazon and having it shipped to the hotel 2 day. I get in Tuesday and the package should come in Wednesday then. Is that something I can do? Staying at the Golden Gate during that period. As always your advice is appreciated.

    At the big hotels on The Strip its not a problem, though some will charge for receiving the package (usually around $20).

    In the case of Golden Gate I would call them, probably asking for the Bell Desk, and ask them:
    - Do they allow you to do this?
    - Is there a charge for this?
    - Where do you go to pick it up when it gets there?
    - What mailing address do you give Amazon?
    - Is there anything special you need to add to the mailing address to make sure it goes to the right department and is for guest pickup?


    As an alternative: you might check to see if Fry's carries the adapter you need. There is one not far from the airport (south on The Strip, near the southern outlet mall at Town Square) so after your plane lands you could cab it there before heading to your hotel, or go Downtown first and then take a cab or the bus down there.

    no problem

    I get all kinds of mail and stuff when im in vegas

    Usually its held at the business center.

    I can usually get them to wave the $20 charge by offering a $5 tip to the guy who actually retireves the package. Just have a $5 bill in your hand and ask point blank - this is yours of you drop the pick up fee. They get very few tips in the business center.

    Good luck

    I have had 2 deliveries in Vegas, both inflatable farm animals, one at Wynn was handled perfectly, no charge, one at Luxor, they lost the package. I had both sent in the name of my host :beer:

    Hey, BeeJay! Great idea. I was always too shy to pack my inflatable farm animals in my carry on. Party time in Vegas, Baby!
