Tipping in a Luxury Hotel
« Reply #128 on: February 20, 2014, 06:16:57 PM »
When staying in a luxury hotel, do you tip? Who do you tip (ex. valet parking, bellhop) and how much?

Tipping at catered meal
« Reply #130 on: February 20, 2014, 07:12:50 PM »
Was curious if anyone has experience hosting a catered meal - Bar Mitzvah, Shabbos Sheva Brachos, etc. Did you tip the waiters? Were the waiters paid a salary in addition to any potential tip? What % did you tip? Was the % based only on the food or did you include the waiters' salaries in the total cost before you calculated the tip?

if you want quick service then tip the valet more than you normally would- and valet is always tipped even if not luxury hotel

it's a good question bec if i'm in and out of valet 3x per day for 2-4 days,
then i'd rather give $10 - $20 tip one time (after the $40 per night!) at the end.

instead of $2 - $3 each time i go out and come in..

Isn't the tip included in the bill?

Reminds me how when I was newly wed, we went out to eat, and when we asked for the check the waitress told us some random guys paid for us.

That never happened to me (and never has since). I felt like such a celebrity. I left the place and then it hit me that I still shoulda left a tip. I still kinda regret it
