How much to tip your hotel staff?

I hope most of you want to tip the hard working staff that make your vacations and travel better.  But of course nobody wants to pay too much because we're in a recession!!!   So I'm going to try to guide you in the right direction player.

Room service:  Check your bill because often times gratuity is already billed, but 12% to 18%.

Your morning maid:  It can really vary but call it at LEAST $2 to $6 per day.

Valet parking:  $1 to $3 when they retrieve your car.

Doorman:  Depends on what they do.  If they help with bags, $1 to $2 per bag.

Bellstaff:   (the dude that lugs your baggage to your room) gets $1 to $2 per bag.

BONUS VIDEO:  Or if you look like Megan Fox this will work!

  1. When I stay in hotels for vacations or even for a business meeting, I usually give tips to the hotel staff. I think I give the most amount of tips when I am on a vacation at a luxurious beach resort. Panama City is my most favorite vacation place of all time. If have enough cash, I'm definitely going to be looking for condos in Panama City Beach, Florida.
