I have a few questions all related to tipping. my assumption is to tip a waitress a dollar a drink. Cab drivers I tend to round up to the nearest 5 dollar bill. So if bill is $12 I pay $15 if its 18 I pay 20 and so forth. yes that tends to work out better sometimes and not as good sometimes but having worked in the service industry for years in the city I live in the one person who never ever ever tips is a cab driver. you'll be hard pressed to find a waitress or bartender in the city I live in willing to tip a cab driver for that reason.
that being said, I understand Vegas is a different city. so my question is who do i tip, how much do I tip, and when do I tip? I work at a hotel and many times the first thing a guest will ask me at check in is what is the customary tip in this city. Since the manager on duty doesn't tend to get tips I never know what to answer (as i dont get them) where I work let alone anywhere else. so do you tip the maids, and if so when? Everyday, at the end of your stay where do you put it? I normally leave a $20 on my bed at checkout regardless of how many days I stay. Is that ok in Vegas?
Other than waiters, cabbies and maids, do I tip anyone else?
