Tipping hotel staff??

Hey guys quick question, were in Orlando atm, there's an envelope left for tipping the cleaning lady just wondering should you tip every day or at the end of your trip (it's the same lady everyday) also how much should you tip!! The last time we were here we tipped at the end of the trip but not sure which is the correct way to do it!! Don't want her to think were stingy just think it would be less hassle tipping a decent amount at the end!! What you think

Tip daily, as you never know if that same cleaning person might be off the day you check out of your hotel.

I would only leave a few dollars a night.

Sudlow comments like that don't help someone who is asking a genuine question - not everyone thinks to/has time to use the search function.

We leave a tip daily, usually a dollar per person because we find the maid changes :)

Do it daily. $3, 4 or 5 is fine. You can also leave a note with it with the word 'Thanks'.

Sudlow has a point, and why not take your own advice. If you dont' like his response why respond?

Chon, Tip daily IF YOU LIKE or at the END IF YOU LIKE. As you seem to have the same maid daily, it is us to you?

I think several of you are keying on the first line of my post and not seeing the second, where I give a link to a comprehensive article on tipping.

OTOH, posting late at night when tired is perhaps not prudent.

Oooooh amanx as you asked me a question, I will answer it:-):-)

I do wish you would read my posts. Where do I actually say "I" don't like his response?

But I suppose you can always add in whatever "you" feel like!!!!

Also, no need to shout......lol.....
