There are a few reasons to tip the people who service hotel rooms. Obviously the main reason is that they work to clean the room and the extra tip can go a long way. But a tip with the room cleaning crew can get some mileage.
For example, on a recent stay at a Hampton Inn I left a small trip ($2 a day) and received the following note from house cleaning.
Not only did I come back to a clean room with plenty of amenities, I can back and received a nice note letting me know a light bulb I didn’t even know was out would be replaced.
What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever received from leaving a trip for the cleaning crew?
