I don’t have this issue, but I do know that most nice hotels will hold a mailed letter or package for several days as long as the addressee has a reservation.  My sister travels A LOT, and I often send her little things to her hotel, which arrive before she does.  I also used to travel all the time on business, and used to internet/mail order shop delivered to my hotel – if the package got there before me, it would be waiting when I checked in.

I would ask your hotels, but I would guess that they should hold the bags for a couple of days.  You do need to clearly mark each bag with the name of the recipient, and if you could also indicate the date you think they are arriving that should help the hotel.

I would definately close them up!  I’m sure nothing will disappear, but on a slow day they hotel folks might be tempted to peek inside…  Do you mind me asking what you are including?  I have some guests that will be travelling a long ways too, and it would be a nice idea to have a little something waiting for them.

My sister is actually great to me as well – she is seven years younger, so in a weird way we are more like friends than sisters.  We live way far from each other, so almost never get to actually see each other – but talk and email and mail stuff all the time.  I don’t know what I would do without her.

is the hotel charging you to deliver the bags to the rooms? they’re charging us a hefty fee ($3/bag, which for us is like, $150 at least).

because of this though, they’re letting us drop of the bags a week before people get there and i guess just holding them in a locked room near the front desk until guests start arriving.
