    Suppose I'm staying somewhere that doesn't offer in-room dining (or in-room dining is not known to be that property's strong suit). Is it possible to order food to be delivered via Ubereats/Seamless et al?

    Any good/bad experiences to speak of from doing this?

    Yes, as long as ubereats exists in Vegas (never looked into it there).

    I live in a high rise in Chicago and get it several times a week, don't see why it would be any different in a Vegas hotel...

    I've used Uber-Eats twice on main strip resorts to get in-n-out. Had no problem.

    I don't know about Uber Eats, but we ordered pizza from a pizza joint that slipped a flyer under our door at Bally's once. They delivered it right to our room.

    There must be some program that provides parking for the delivery drivers in a pre-set area at the properties. Otherwise, I can't imagine how it would work. With the normal everyday traffic around the resorts it is hard to believe that your food would be remotely edible, temperature-wise. The walk through the casino and the elevator ride alone would add another 15 minutes in some cases to the delivery time. I would love to hear some actual stories about how this works.

    That was my first thought too. With the difficulty parking, how could it possibly work?

    Meet them in the lobby or in the roundabout to make it easy. Don’t think hotels cater to ubereats

    It's the same with Amazon Prime Now. Meet the driver out front.

    I'm surprised hotels allow this, especially in Vegas. Our hotel in L A said no deliveries accepted due to the incident in Vegas...

    I might just have to do this. I figure I won't get to my hotel until about 10pm, so having something to eat while I unpack would be nice, or for after I'm done unpacking.

    I understand they will deliver to the Uber pick up spot. I don't think it's reasonable to expect them to pay for garage parking and walk your food up to your room and back to their car, which can take up to 20 minutes in each direction at the largest hotels. If they do, please cover their parking fee and tip them an amount that would compensate them for 40 minutes of time not spent taking people to the airport.

    I suspect drivers do eats runs to fill the time as a last resort if there are no other fares. Even when I have ordered to be delivered in multiple much simpler situations, the driver's time was consistently wasted because the food wasn't ready when they showed up at the restaurant to pick it up, and the actual time I received the food was typically about 45 minutes after the initial ETA.

    Also some hotels check for room keys at the elevator.
