Does Uber Eats deliver to hotels? The answer is yes. Uber Eats does deliver to hotels. So long as Uber Eats operates in the city you’re in, you shouldn’t have any issues getting Uber Eats to deliver to your hotel
How Does Uber Eats Deliver To Hotels?
Uber Eats delivers to hotels the same way they deliver to anywhere else. As a customer, you place your order via the Uber Eats app and put your hotel as the delivery address. Ideally, you should get the actual address of the hotel, but Uber Eats will also usually be able to fill in the hotel name in the app, without needing the actual address.
Once you place your order, Uber Eats will send your delivery request to any available Uber Eats Drivers. If a driver accepts your delivery request, they’ll pick up your order and deliver it to you.
You have three options if you want to get your Uber Eats order delivered to your hotel. The first is to have your delivery driver bring the food directly to your room. If this is your preferred option, be sure to enter your room number in the delivery address or add it to the delivery notes. That being said, I generally don’t recommend having your food delivered directly to your room. It’s annoying for the driver, adds more work for them (made more difficult if they’re in a car and can’t park), and in many instances, the hotel won’t even let the driver up to deliver the food to your room.
The second option – and the one I recommend – is to meet your Uber Eats driver at the front door of the hotel or in the lobby. This is generally the best way to do it. It’s easier for the delivery person and honestly, it’s probably easier and faster for you to just pick up the food from your driver in the lobby instead of waiting for the driver to navigate through the hotel to your room.
The final option is to have your Uber Eats delivery driver leave the food for you at the front desk. This is usually a fine option too, but in busier hotels, you might not want to do this. Some hotels won’t let delivery people leave orders at the front desk. And you also risk someone taking your food if you don’t pick it up right away.
Does Uber Eats Deliver To Hotels In Las Vegas?
A lot of people specifically ask if Uber Eats delivers to hotels in Las Vegas. The answer once again is yes, they do.
Be aware that if your Uber Eats delivery person is driving, they likely won’t be able to park for very long and likely won’t be able to bring the food up to your room. It’s best to meet them outside or in the lobby to make everyone’s life easier.
What You Should Do If You Have Uber Eats Deliver To A Hotel
If you want to be a good Uber Eats customer, you should aim to make your delivery as easy as possible for your Uber Eats driver. Remember, Uber Eats delivery people are independent contractors, so they can accept or reject any orders they want. If your delivery request isn’t attractive, it’s possible no one will pick up your Uber Eats order.
To make sure someone accepts your delivery request, be sure to leave an appropriate tip. I recommend tipping 20% – the same as you’d tip in a restaurant. If you don’t tip, the payout for your order will likely be too low and no Uber Eats drivers will pick up your order. While Uber Eats drivers can’t see your exact tip before they deliver your order, they can get an idea of whether you tipped based on the payout that’s offered.
Finally, you’ll make life much easier for your delivery person if you are willing to meet them outside or in the lobby, rather than making them go through the hotel and up to your floor. As I mentioned previously, some hotels don’t let delivery people go up to guest floors. It also isn’t that much work to meet your delivery person in front of the hotel or the lobby and you’ll probably get your food faster if you do this too.
Should You Deliver To A Hotel If You Are A Uber Eats Driver?
I generally don’t have any problems with delivering to a hotel when I’m doing Uber Eats deliveries. I see it as similar to delivering to an apartment. If you’re unlucky, the customer will make you bring the food to their door, so it can be a bit of a crapshoot sometimes.
The only potential issue I see is that most hotels are located in dense, downtown areas, so if you’re using a car, you’ll probably have trouble parking. Most of the time though, you can simply pull in front of the hotel lobby, hit your blinkers, and then run inside. If you’re lucky, the customer will meet you in front of the hotel, so you won’t have to worry about parking.
I use an ebike or electric scooter to do my deliveries, so I never have a problem with parking. If you’re able to use a bike, ebike, or electric scooter, you’ll make delivering to hotels far easier.
When you’re traveling and staying in a hotel, you’ll sometimes need to get food delivered. Uber Eats delivers to hotels, so you won’t have any problems ordering food from somewhere.
To make things easier for everyone, follow these tips:
- Be sure to put the correct address for your hotel;
- Tip appropriately.
- Meet your delivery person in the lobby or at the front door if you can, rather than making them bring the food up to your room.
As an Uber Eats driver, I really appreciate it when customers do these things.
