Default Autographs at hotels?

Any tips? Is it even worth it? May try this weekend since the Dolphins are in town but have never done it before...

I've done it lots. Depends on the team. Some teams will let you roam anywhere. Others (like the niners) will rope you off and you have a better chance at the stadium then at the hotel. We got Aackers, Brandon Jacobs, and Patrick Willis at the hotel.

But in the past I've ridden in elevators with Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and also got Bill Walsh's auto at the hotel. You don't know until you try.

I have never done the hotel before. How do you find out what hotels the teams are staying in?

I got to meet people this year at training camp who shared info about team hotels here in Indiana. I'm upset anyway because weather got crappy and I didn't want to risk stuff getting damaged so I didn't then at the game Tannehill signed right around me. I was the only person even wearing his jersey where he signed and yet he dodged my mini helmet. Guess I'll just have to spend more money and buy one already signed, cusks cause this one would have meant more to me

Bringing back this dead thread to ask the question again for those with experience. Dolphins are back in town this year so I've got another chance. Depending on how it goes may try for others but always helps to have insight prior to these things. Do you walk up to the players as they enter and just asked politely if they have time to sign, do you wait in the lobby or outside?

Thanks
Andy

I remember last year, in early August, I went to Albany for my cousin's wedding. I ended up staying in the same hotel in some players trying out for the New York Giants. Now, granted that I hate the Giants and I had no idea who they were, I didn't get any autographs, but it was cool knowing that I stayed in the same hotel as some professional athletes (well, maybe...).
