We usually know when it’s appropriate to tip someone who’s served us well. We order a cocktail and drop a dollar or two on the bar to say thank you, or hand a few dollars to a cab driver even when traveling a few blocks.
When was the last time you showed your appreciation to the people who work hard to clean your hotel room? Just like bartenders and waiters, room attendants earn low wages for making your stay pleasurable. You can put a smile on a housekeeper’s face by printing out copies of this note before your next trip. On the first morning after your arrival, place it on your night stand with a small tip ($3-$5 per night is appreciated).
