Hi there

I am traveling to USA and wanted to buy a few things from the Apple refurb store. Will Apple deliver to hotels or does it need to be residential?

Thanks in advance.

I've had many other (i.e. non-Apple) things ordered to hotels in the US with never a problem so unless they explicitly forbid it it should be fine. There are tips for correct addressing to hotels on the web.

There shouldn't be an issue-it's just like any other business address.

When I've flown to watch shows, I have Fed-Ex overnighted my more valuable pieces to the hotel. It beats having a TSA agent opening and flashing $20K worth of stuff in a briefcase for everyone to see(I've been denied a private room before) when they see 40 pocket watches and have no idea what they are on the X-ray.

In any case, the best thing you can do is contact the front desk if you're at the hotel or contact them ahead of time and ask about their general policy on deliveries. I've never had decent hotels have a problem with it.

Ask for how they want things addressed, but the general format is

[Hotel Name]
Guest[Your Name][Room # if known]
[Street Address]

They will receive, keep it at the front desk, and call you when it's there.

Refurb vs. new doesn't really factor in. I've ordered items directly to a hotels a few times - had some Christmas items dropped from Amazon to a report at Universal a few years ago :D
