Anyone had success tipping during Check-In to get an upgraded room, a view, maybe even a suite?
1) Do you tip as soon as you walk up to the counter? Introduce yourself, shake hands and include a crisp bill? Or wait to see what kind of room you get?
2) What amount has worked for you? $20 Bill? $50?
Obviously a sunny disposition, pleasant manners and conversation will go a long way at the counter as in life.
Throw you pointers this way please!!!
