Probably, since the desk is well staffed, but you really should email or call the hotel to be sure. Be aware that some hotels charge a fee to receive guest's packages, so be sure to also ask about that.

Yes. There is no concierge lounge but the front desk provided coupons to use in the restaurant for a complimentary continental breakfast. Pastries yogurt fruit - not bad at all
