Uber, Lyft, And Taxi Cabs

Hi friends! Rick “Ziggy” Ziegler here with some more ride-sharing news

Q: Can Uber/Lyft pick me up at my, or any, hotel?

A: YES! But…

One of the biggest challenges faced by both riders and drivers is WHERE on each hotel property you can request a ride, and get picked up.

About half of the hotels on The Strip allow Uber/Lyft to pick up riders in their main/front valet area. Simply go outside, fire up your app, and request a ride.

The other half of the hotels have not been as accommodating. Several hotels have designated areas where you can request a ride, and Uber/Lyft are mandated to only pick up riders at those specific locations.

This location could be a side entrance or a different valet than the one you entered when you checked in. It has been equally frustrating for everyone. Drivers can’t find their riders. Riders can’t find their drivers. Hotel staff continually redirecting drivers to another location.

Before you request a ride from Uber/Lyft from any hotel…

  • Ask a hotel staff member where the designated “ride sharing” pick up location is.
  • Be at, or very close, to that location BEFORE requesting the ride. There is usually very little room for a driver to sit and wait, and they will be asked to circle around again rather than blocking traffic.
  • Be patient when waiting for your driver. Traffic on and near The Strip is usually very busy, backed up, and the red lights take several minutes to change. You could be waiting 5 to 15 minutes for your driver.
  • To be 100% honest: For most Strip hotels, hailing a taxi cab “IS” going to be faster. It’s getting cold outside, and you may not want to wait. Taxis are always staged and waiting at hotels. If you are traveling from one hotel to another hotel. I do recommend taking a taxi for faster service. More expensive? Most likely.
