    Out of the blue I read covid restrictions at Four Queens website. Their bell desk is closed. What have any of you done with luggage if you can not check in early at your hotel if bell desk is closed? Take it ez. GOLFCADDY1 :cheers:

    I would ask the front desk, they should have a solution. Call before you get there to find out. No sense in being "surprised".
     
    Slot tournament at Venetian, then on to Cosmopolitan
    Cosmopolitan . . .time to try them out.

    Worst case, you could check it at another property, but of course youd have to go pick it up yourself. At least downtown that's probably less inconvenient than it would be on the strip. I cant think of anything else to do with it other than rent a car and throw it in the trunk, or wander around with your luggage in tote for however long until your room is ready.

    I arrived at California a million years ago at an hour the bell desk was closed and they held my bag at the check in counter

    Thanks for the reply. I get in at 9 am on a Sunday in Feb. The front desk clerk at Four Queens did say if a room was open they would allow an early check in but it depends on the situation. Have a good day. GOLFCADDY1

    Having been in the same situation a few times at the Four Queens as the poster, it’s not as unusual as you would think. I have flown in from the Midwest and have arrived there well before noon, and wanted to start playing. The last time I stayed there and had to use the bell desk was the day about a year ago the last week in February when theirs and Binions computer systems were hacked by the ransom ware folks. I wasn’t able to check into my room until around 6:30 PM, and they could only give you one key card for the room. I played my free play on a trip back in October, but I guess that resulted in MIA status on their mailing list.

    @GOLFCADDY1 worst case you could go to any open bell desk like Golden Nugget or D and for $5 a bag, I am sure you can convince the bell desk to hold it for you. You may want to spin that you just checked out of the hotel and just want the guy to hold your bag until a friend picks you up.

    Beware! A couple of years ago my wife and I arrived in the morning with a strip hotel booked. We chose to go downtown to play until we could go to the strip and check in. The plan was to check our bags at the downtown bell desk at what I think was the Freeeeeeeeeeeeemont. They informed me that this service was for hotel guests only. Just for the record, they did check the bags.

    If you want to be even more evasive, you could suggest that you just checked out of a sister hotel (ie tell Fremont guy you just checked out of California) so there is no easy way for a bell man to verify.
