To Tip or Not To Tip – And How Much?


You’re traveling to New York on business — do you tip the front-desk agent?  How about the bellman?  You get to your room and unpack and call down for extra towls.  Do you tip upon delivery? What about the bartender at the hosted happy hour offered at the hotel?  The maid?  To the concierge? The person who opens your car door?

I’m a fairly seasoned traveler and I question myself regarding proper tip protocol, and aparently I’m not alone.  USA Today asked several hospitality and etiquitte experts for their advice and, while not consistent, does provide guidence on when to pull out the dollar bills and when to keep them in your wallet.

So before your next trip, be sure to check out this Suggested tip by hotel guest to make sure your doing the right thing.
