Here is why you always tip housekeeping…

A 2 pound tip well spent!

A 2 pound tip well spent!

Gary at View from the Wing had a fun post yesterday about Hyatt’s new promo encouraging people to “steal” their amenities. Well, I don’t generally steal them, but I DO have a tip: always tip your maid, especially when you are fond of a certain brand of toiletry.

I am a Molton Brown fanatic, and at the Hyatt London Chruchill I recently had a two night stay. On day one I was sure to leave a 2 pound coin with a note “for your service”. Later that day I ran across the maid while leaving, asked for an extra set of toiletries…and easily ended up with $50 worth. I’m sure I would have gotten something with or without the tip, but as you can see it certainly didn’t hurt!

When has taking care of housekeeping taken care of you?
