Standard tip recommended by the hospitality industry is $2 to $3 per night.

If I am very tidy, $3 a night. If there is any mess or I am asking for anything like extra coffee or towels we usually leave $5. Also depends somewhat on the size of the room, if there is more to clean, $5 or more.

Whew! Thanks Cajunyank, that's what I usually leave, except if there has been some personal interaction, even a simple meeting in the room or corridor, I'll leave $5.

If the service has been good, usually US $5/night.

I have gone up on that, but also down. It depends on a lot of factors.

Last week, at a "all gratuities included" resort, I still did the full $ 5/night, as housekeeping was excellent, even having our favorite bath products in the cottage (not the products for that resort).

I try to leave $5 a night. I feel the housekeepers are usually the hardest working employee in the hotel!

We leave $5 per night for routinely good service. I agree with s33333. Those people work hard!
