    How much of a tip do you generally leave for basic housekeeping service in a hotel?

    Who does that? I never heard of such a thing. So, for me, $0.

    None. If you're particularly grateful because of a special request, leave a few bucks before you leave. Make sure it's for the person you have in mind.

    I usually leave a couple of dollars on the vanity. If I'm staying more than a couple of days I'll tip $5.00 every three days or so. Anything special gets $3 to $5 on the spot.

    I used to travel a lot for work.. I usually left 3-4 dollars for my 3 night stays if the service was good. If the service was mediocre, then I left nothing. Of course, I expensed this tip..

    It depends, sometimes I feel like being generous, and sometimes I don't. It isn't always dependent on the service itself, but oftentimes my general mood.

    my friend who used to work as a concierge told me leaving a dollar, folded and standing up, on the bed everyday is enough tip.

    $1-$3 per day depending on the amount of mess and the grade of the hotel, more ($5-$10 a day) for high-end hotels. Leave the tip someplace where it's clear that it's a tip -- on the pillow or on the desk with a note.[​IMG]

    I mean, its like I have to wipe up all the coke residue and stuff the dead hooker under the bed before they can come in and leave me fresh towels.

    You guys are bunch of cheap-assed bastards.

    $5 for each day the room is actually cleaned, but generally if I'm staying multiple days I request that the cleaning personnel not come in on a daily basis.
