    I was listening to the radio today, they were talking about staying in hotels and how they use the do not disturb sign throughout their stay, but they leave the maid a nice tip when they leave.

    Do you tip hotel maids?

    Yes. I leave a dollar on each pillow each day. I thought everyone did myself.

    No, but I can imagine, if your stay is long, and you don't let the maid in, it's only right to tip due to the extra cleaning she has to do.

    I only tip the guy who takes my bags up at higher class hotels, or the guy who brings me room service.

    Forty years ago I was told to always take a roll of dollar bills for tipping and I usually take about a hundred ones, but that's for a week. I just don't like getting caught where I only have tens or fives on me.

    I can't remember how I knew to leave money on the pillows. It's just easy and a manager can't snag it normally. They don't make much and I sure appreciate it every day. I leave more on checkout, but it's not much money to say thank you to them to me.

    Yes I have always tipped, but I worked at a hotel desk for eons, so I knew this.
