    Are there any PO Box/ courier service on the strip (preferable center strip) which can hold parcels for visitors to pick up? Of course against a fee. This would be for online shopping since not all US online retailers ship North across the wall.
    Tried to go through the concierge desks of a couple of hotels in the past with very sketchy results.

    You can have packages shipped to the hotels and pick up in the business offices. They tend to charge though ~$15?
    There are also Amazon lockers that you can have Amazon ship to.
    Some FedEx locations at hotels will accept a package, for a fee. Contact them for details though.

    Planet Hollywood has a UPS center. I ship packages to myself there but I am either there already as a hotel guest or headed there. They hold them and I pick them up. It's been two years so I am assuming it's still there.

    There is a UPS store in the Flamingo. It is on way toward the Monorail and parking garage.

    Virtually all of the casino's on the strip offer this service - they will usually hold the parcel for free for registered guests. Most of the casino's the information on how/where to send the parcel is on the website, if not, use the "contact us" on their site to find the information you need.

    I have tried that twice, although to the concierge desks (advised by the hotels). Once they lost the parcel, 2nd time took 2 full days to "find" it. Still got charged $30.

    UPS Store (a lot of the CET hotels) or FedEx Business Center (Cosmo). I wouldn't ship to the hotel using its own name.

    I believe Walgreens is now a FedEx drop-off and pickup point, where you can have packages held for pickup.

    if you ship to a hotel, please make sure your package is clearly marked such as:
    for arriving guest: Gretta Gambler

    Thanks all for pointing me in the right direction. Bally's/ Paris Business Services has indeed very clear instructions on inbound shipments.

    My previous crappy experiences were with 2 centre strip MGM properties, who initially gave me the run around when I inquired, only to bounce me to the concierge desk for inbound mail. The hotel by the lake could not find my parcel, the shiny, wavey one found it only after 2 days.
