Baggage Porters and Bellhops
A bellhop's day often begins at the crack of dawn with early checkouts and storage requests. Guests who need to store their luggage until a flight later in the day can have the bellstand place their belongings in the storage area, more commonly known as the back closet. After guests are given claim tickets for each piece of luggage, the bags are stored according to size and weight. There is a late-morning slow period before the crunch of the afternoon arrivals and check-ins.
