i would say a dollar a bag. because we end up tipping the guy that takes you to the van. then the guy that loads your bags in the van, then the driver who drives you and unloads your bags. then the bell hop who takes your bags. by the time we are done all those dollars add up and I am not to the room yet.

Totally agree with ESTHER - that's the same thing we do - and it is so appreciated by those folks. So it's pretty much $5.00 x 4 = $20 and we've just made it to the room - the total cost might be a bit more as if the guy that takes our bag to the room, then explains the room to us - we might give him $10, rather than $5 - but any tip they'll appreciate!

P.S. Plus, if the "check in" person gives us a totally awesome room, we tip them too! It's up to everyone's discretion what they want to do.
