That’s a bummer, but I know it does happen.  Could you ask if they can do it for a fee?  Or you could ask for the room numbers of your guests and personally deliver the Out of Town bags or leave them at their door.  Are any of the Out of Town guests coming to the rehearsal dinner?  You could do it there too.  If not, I would probably just skip the Out of Town bags all together.  They are nice, but not necessary.

If your out of town guests are invited to the rehearsal dinner, give it to them then.  Or deliver it personally to them when they arrive.  If you can’t do this, maybe a family member could.

You can usually get a rooming list when you’ve booked a block of rooms – it will list the name of the guest as well as their room number. If you get that list, you can deliver them (or have someone else deliver them for you).

Our hotel would do it for free if we included EVERYONE in our block (not just OTT), otherwise for “certain” guests out of the block, it was $10/bag.  Are you able to have them do your whole block for free?  Can you afford that?

Otherwise I would ask for the block listing with room numbers when you check in.  Problem with that is sometimes they assign rooms as they are done being cleaned and/or available, so they may not assign rooms until the individuals check in.

You can also use the rooming list to broadcast a phone message to guest room phones, instructing the guests to pick up their Out of Town bags at some central location (not sure if the desk would hold them for pickup).
