Stayed here for a family getaway, checked in and was advised of the horrible fees. And i couldn't believe my ears when the lady at the front desk advised me not to leave a tip. I aked her why? She told me awful things about the housekeeper's, which i never noticed while i was there. My room was clean perfectly, great tempture, light on, and a wonderful clean smell. Anyway one of the housekeeper's greeted me kindly, so i figured i would ask why are the clerks telling the guest not to tip at departure? She said that the bellman were stealing the tips out of the room, which they walked in on it a few times. I asked how much they get paid a hour she told me 8.75hr, and 1per room and they get about 5 rooms per day or less. She also told me the guest wasn't leaving tips anymore. We stayed at this hotel 5 days and got great service, so why can't we leave a tip. We found the imformation very helpful. Other than that we had an okay trip, but could have been alot better. Love the Historial part of it all.
