Tipping Advice (first time)
« on: May 23, 2010, 02:14:12 PM »

So, I am staying at the Fairmont, and I was wondering how much one should tip for valet parking and room service (like the ones who would bring in my food)?
I have never done this, so I am wondering.
The guy who parks my car, I pay him/her before (of course), but how much?

If you have a valet help carry your bag up to you room, it's nice to tip around $1-$2 a bag.

As for parking valet, $2-$3 is good.  I usually tip a little more so that I know they'll take nice care of my car and from my experience if it's usually the same person, they tend to bring my vehicle out faster.

When it comes to tipping for room service, the standard applies as if you were out in a restaurant.  Anywhere from 15-20% is good.  I generally try for 18% minimum since I know they mostly work off tips.  20% if they did an outstanding job and went out of their way to get things for me.

When you are a guest at the hotel, it's also a good idea to tip the maids (especially if you are prone to having a messy room).  Usually $2-5 a person per night is good.  The more you tip, the happier they'll be and they'll do nice things for you like leave extra sets of towels.  I usually like to tip large the first night just to let them know that I appreciate them and they take care of me.  Sometimes when I leave continuous tips, they will pass the tip and leave it as is on the table/dresser for me to take back.  When they do this, I just make sure to leave a standard tip my last day.

Hope this helps!

In my personal opinion you don't need to tip anyone.
Rather they better hope they did there job well less I report them to their superior for doing a sloppy job.
