Hi, Yama: The third sentence ("When are you arriving?") is the best one for the hotel receptionist to use. The present progressive is used with future meaning when scheduled plans are involved. Here is another question that would work well in that context:

  • When do you plan to arrive?

Again, please remember to begin sentences with a capital letter, and do NOT use a space before commas, periods, question marks, exclamation points, etc.
