I don't give advance notice of my blindness or my guide dog unless I will 
need some accommodation related to one or the other.  Like if I am going to 
a conference and I need materials emailed to me in advance I will of course 
tell them that I'm blind.  I have never informed a hotel ahead of time.  I 
haven't given advanced notice when flying either, but when I got to the 
first airport they made some sort of note in the computer, changed my 
seating and set up someone to meet me at each gate.  I don't think I would 
have minded so much if this had actually been of help, but it turned out to 
be a gigantic disaster.

I think the only way to figure out what works for you and what doesn't is to 
just try out different things and see what happens.   some people choose the 
advance notice option and some don't, I say if it works for you then it's 
the right choice for you.
