Hi everyone, I have a delima that is just starting to bother me. I have always left tips for hotel cleaning personnel, for taking care of the room and assuming that they need the extra money. I tip extra for anything bought to the room, and for special items I request from the maids, like extra towels, etc. my QUESTION is, what does everyone else do? How much of a tip should one leave at Hotels? Do the Luxery Hotels pay the staff better, so they do need as much? I find that THESE are the people that stand at the door and wait for thier tip, while at the smaller hotels, the servers bring your items and leave, I have to stop them to give the tip. Most people have told me they never leave tips at hotels, and I found this rather rude. My last trip I did not leave a tip for the 1 night I spent, but did tip for the extra pillows. I felt guilty about it, but the room was not that great, and I would like for these Hotels to just pay the staff better wages so they don;t have to depend on tips to survive! what do the rest of you think?
