Day 3 of 5 here complete in Duluth. Sadly I havent frlt much like exploring, just more so deflated after 9 hours of sittig in a classroom listening to instructors drone on and on and reading my current Grisham book in the hotel (The Confession, so far so good!) Since I was staying longer than just a couple days I thought Id leave a couple bucks for the housekeeper just because. I do that sometimes even though I am not sure what the standard practice is. In hotels do you tip housekeeping?

Any particular reasoning?

@maezee Yeah, we had a really bad experience last summer. We contacted the manager on duty who sent the housekeeping manager to our room-it was a mess, and they cleaned it up, after we had already spent a night there, and then still charged us for that night. After that I have lost a lot of respect for that industry-they really inconvenienced us by taking about an hour (for the 2nd time that day) to clean our room, and it was necessary, but it should have been a time that we approved.

seems as it is expected in some countries. We did that when we were in Singapore even though some hotels there added the tip in the service or something.

I tip if I stay longer than over night and ask for more supplies or cleaning.

Depending on the service I get, I either donĀ“t tip (if it is bad) or tip if it is from normal to good. But my tips then are bigger.

I worked as a housekeeper once and never saw it done. I never have personally.
