When I’m on vacation, tipping housekeeping is a no brainer. In fact, any time I stay in a hotel for longer than a few nights it’s just included in the budget. But for business trips I’m usually in the same place for a night or two, and in the hotel hardly at all. It’s not that I don’t want to tip housekeeping; it often just slips through the cracks as I’m dealing with work craziness. I tip room service, valet, and bellhops—why do I forget housekeeping? According to CNN’s tipping guidelines, $2-5 per night is appropriate. Maybe I just need to remember to bring more cash….
So I’m interested in what everyone else does. Do you tip housekeeping if you’re somewhere just one night? How much?
