I think your biggest issue is not going to be the length of time from delivery to use, but what the poor flowers have to go through between then. 

1.  Flowers don’t do well in cars.  Temperatures change very quickly (often warmer than should be for flowers).  Also humidity can be tough to control.

2.  It would be tough to keep them at the hotel if there isn’t a good place to keep them cool. 

I think between putting the flowers in the car and then in the hotel overnight, you might be asking too much of the poor things!

I’m not sure I understand though, why can’t you just have the flowers shipped to the hotel? What about delivery to the venue?

You actually WANT your flowers to arrive a couple of days before your event. They need time to hydrate and perk up a lot before you arrange them. Usually, about 2 days, so Friday would be a good day. As long as there aren’t huge temp swings, and you can keep them in water for the trip, they *should* be ok.
