Yes, if we stay for over a day or two.
I always leave the room very tidy, so I don't see much of a point in it for a one night stay.
Yes we do, although we went to a very nice hotel this weekend in Vegas and found out there was no hand soap! There was shampoo, lotion and body wash but no hand soap at the sink. Also there were 3 of us and only two glasses were by the ice bucket. We called and they did bring up hand soap, plus an extra glass. Yet, the next day, the cleaner replaced the glasses with fresh - but only 2.
I left her $5 for two nights and considered that generous since really the basics weren't covered.
I just had to post that I've never heard of 'not' leaving anything, just like at a restaurant. If I got lousy service, I would just leave a dollar so they would know I thought they had lousy service. I'm not trying to judge, just that I've never heard of that. I always remember my mom leaving the hotel cleaning service something, plus my aunt did cleaning while her kids were in school and I know it's not an easy job at all, so I guess I just grew up expecting to.
However, I've always left the $$ the day we leave, not each individual day. When we were in Disney 1 left $3 a day for every day were were there (there are 3 of us) but I left it all at the end. I'm a neat nick too so we always straightened everything and kept it neat, didn't leave towels lying about etc.
I just used that as an example of something I would tip for, I wasn't actually comparing the two. Like I would tip for a hairdresser, for the coat person at a party center, etc. I didn't mean to compare the two jobs. I just meant that is something that I would tip for if I got good service and was surprised when I saw others didn't. I just grew up with it and took it as a given.
Again, having my aunt work in housekeeping and knowing how pressed for time they are (I always say the lowest paying jobs are by far the hardest ones) I guess I feel for the chambermaids. I know my aunt would get thrown an astounding amount of rooms to clean in half the time she needed to clean them properly in. So I guess I just have a soft spot for the chambermaids.
As an aside, and not that it really relates to the OP at all, but my aunt was an RN that cleaned hotel rooms during the day to help with family expenses. When the kids got older she worked for years and years as the head RN at a nursing home. I always think about her when I'm in a hotel, because she was putting money aside for her kids, so in my mind (since I've also worked part time for my kid) I just relate the two. Doesn't mean a hill of beans to anyone else, but it does to me
