By mistake voted that i tip once

thinking it meant once in my life, not once every visit lol

The one time I tipped mia centurion I had this guy just offer himself as my slave literally getting stuff from the kitchen, drinks were filled before they were done, special requests so I had to hook him up!

When do you tip valet at a hotel?

When you drop off the car for the first time? Every time they bring the car? The final time that they'll be bringing the car?
I was just wondering the same thing. I usualy tip a small amount each time they bring the car and then a little more the final time.
On a side note I realized how cheap of a tipper I am when I saw the guy next to me give them $15 when he first dropped off his car.

You can say what you think when you think what you say.

It seems to me that in the US a tip is generally expected every time someone brings something that you requested to your room. You obviously don't have to though, and if you don't i assume you won't be the only one that they didn't get a tip from.

Not unless you plan on billing the hotel the amount of the tip.

And I'm sure any time he wanted his car, they brought it faster than they brought your car.

I believe Curb your Enthusiasm has an episode on this.

Maintenance does not need to be tipped unless they are plunging your toilet

Always wondered what is expected in certain scenarios. Please post what you think is acceptable tip in various scenarios. A few recent examples:

1) 3 movers worked for about 6 hours, how much would you tip?
2) 1 driver delivered a bunk bed, how much would you tip?
3) Valet driver what is the standard tip?

1. $20 each
2. $5 or $10 depending how difficult I thought the job was
3. $1-2 to the guy getting my car
