Are you thinking of surprising a loved one with a lovely bottle of champagne delivered straight to their hotel room? Besides flowers and gift sets, sending sparklers to hotel rooms is quite common.
Whether for a special event or a spontaneous celebration, throwing a bubbly surprise is guaranteed to elevate the hotel stay.
That said, not all hotels will accommodate such requests. You must first coordinate with the hotel’s concierge or room service. In this post, we’ll explore the options, how to get champagne delivered to hotel room, and what to include with the bubbly.
How To Get Champagne Delivered to Hotel Room
To order champagne to be delivered to a hotel room, you need to first coordinate with their concierge or front desk. Make sure to check if they offer this service, though. But most hotels do. Most hotels in Las Vegas, for example, will arrange the delivery for you. So, inform them in advance about your plans.
First, explain the situation to them. Most hotels will have food and beverage service, so they should be able to attend to your request. On some occasions, you may even ask the hotel staff to deliver the champagne or the package before the guest arrives.
Keep in mind that hotel services will likely charge you a higher amount for the arrangement. But you have the option to have it delivered via services like Uber Eats and DoorDash, although they only deliver to selected cities. It’s best to ask around.
Whichever service you pick, here are a few things you may want to consider before sending champagne to the hotel room.
Information You Need To Know
When you plan to have champagne or sparkling wine delivered to a hotel room, you’ll want to provide crucial details. This is particularly important if you’re getting the wine delivery from a third-party service or wine store. So here are the details you need:
– Recipient’s name
– Is the recipient of the legal drinking age?
– Hotel’s name, address, and phone number
– Room number of the recipient
Surprising your loved ones with their favorite champagne delivered to their hotel could be tricky, especially if you want to keep it secret from them. This is because it’s meant to be a surprise, so you don’t want to give them any hint.
You don’t want to ruin the surprise, so ask the hotel’s concierge. Don’t worry, you are not the first person to pull this idea. Check that they can deliver for a specific time. Many hotels will handle such requests even if you don’t know the hotel room number.
Or, you can just casually ask the recipient about their accommodations right before you have the package delivered.
Add a Lovely Bouquet
You might also add some flowers to the package. It’s one of the thoughtful ways to send a particular message to a hotel guest. A good floral arrangement would often come in a basket, along with the champagne.
If you want to congratulate a guest or greet someone on their birthday, go for carnations and tulips. For newlywed friends whom you want to surprise on their wedding night, you can send some white roses, peonies, potted orchids, sunflowers, and Peruvian lilies.
You have endless choices of flowers. Ask the florist for suggestions if you’re not sure what to include.
Add Food Pairings
A special bottle of champagne wouldn’t be complete without the best food to pair with. For aperitif, add nuts or a trail mix. You can also incorporate cheeses like Parmesan or gouda, or a platter of seafood like oysters.
If the guest loves sweet-style champagne, order some full-flavored foods including meat and cheese though they can be expensive. Thai cuisine, Ceviche, and steak will also take your surprise to the next level.
And Some Knickknacks
Maybe some “hangover cures” post-celebration? You may want to include some pain meds (for that skull-shattering champagne hangover, of course), scented candles, or essential oils.
And to make it more fancy, you can also add some chocolates, coffee, tea, and healthy trail snacks. Or, just anything that your friend you think will love, really.
Don’t Forget To Put a Special Note!
This usually comes with a flower arrangement. A sweet, handwritten note will add a meaningful touch to the surprise. Don’t forget to write the sender’s name (you!).
Can I Courier Champagne?
Yes. You can have bottles of champagne and sparkling wine shipped from abroad. Most couriers allow the shipment of alcoholic beverages.
But keep in mind that the United States Postal Service (USPS) prohibits sending alcoholic beverages through the mail. Ans this is true even for licensed alcohol retailers throughout the US.
What Is the Best Way To Ship Champagne?
We recommend packing the bottles with polystyrene inner packaging with a corrugated outer container. A molded pulp and die-cut corrugated packaging will also protect the bottles. You can also fill a box with other cushioning materials such as bubble wrap and cloth.
To keep the bottles safe during transit, reinforce the bottom of the box with sturdy tape.
Sending a bubbly surprise to a hotel guest room? You can, but make sure that the hotel you’re staying at or your loved ones’ are staying at handles the arrangement. Most hotels have food and beverage services and will be more than happy to assist you with your request.
If not, you can explore third-party services. And don’t forget to incorporate some food pairings, floral arrangements, and a heartfelt note!
