I feel very uncomfortable not to tip in a luxury hotel.
Who do you tip and how much?

$5-10, yes it adds up as a huge expense for me on so called free nights.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

There comes a point when someone is posting such idiocy that you feel an urge to pee in public.

If people were nice, they get a tip (amount depends on the country). If not, they get zero. I'm allergic to people hanging around until you feel uncomfortable and have to tip, so I make a point of not to tip them.

Isn't the tip included in the bill?

Caterer gave me the bill and said if you want to tip the waiters, decide how much to add on.
Usually the caterer will charge you a set fee per waiter (the set fee is usually not what the waiter gets paid. The caterer takes a cut a lot of times). While there is no obligation to tip the waiters, most people usually tip each waiter ~$15-20. If you feel the waiters went above and beyond, you can always tip more to show your appreciation.
Was 2 meals over Shabbos, so you're suggesting double the 15-20?

a nice smile is good, letting you wait for 20 mins isn't.

That is a common amount. Obviously if you had waiters that did not do a good job, don't feel as obligated to tip and if you do, you can always tip a lesser amount.
