I haven't interjected this into one of the tipping discussions in a long time, so thought I would here: If you don't feel like tipping the housekeeper or the valet or the bellman or whomever, don't do it. That doesn't mean I give everyone a free pass to be cheap. I'm just saying that if you're opposed to tipping, nobody is going to force you. In these tipping threads we sort of come up with an informal consensus of what SOME people do. It's not a law or regulation that you have to or you'll be evicted from Vegas. For example, the guy who opens up the taxi cab door and tells the driver where you are going always seems to have a hand out. But I just smile and say a warm "Thank you" unless he has done something else like made a recommendation or help. Okay, if I'm having a good night I may slip him $1, but I don't make it a rule. I'm not comfortable with it, so usually I don't. I encourage everyone else to do whatever feels good for you and fits in your budget. Vegas has gotten a lot more expensive in the last 10 yrs and a low roller like myself can't be giving everyone I come in contact with $5 and still have money for food! Tips I've given have always been appreciated. Do it if you feel motivated. As to what to tip, the answers are always going to vary. The guy who is betting $2500 a hand is going to have a different standard than the guy betting $5. I'll try to give you a range and you do what feels comfortable. At the airport: Skycaps - $1-5 per bag Getting Around: Airport/Rental Car Shuttle Bus Drivers: $1-5 per person Limousine Driver: If you rent a limousine for a special occasion or for a tour of the strip, standard tip is usually $5-10 per person or 10% of the bill, whichever is more. Free Hotel Shuttles: I have to admit that I rarely tip on these busses unless the driver does something exceptional. Usually $1-2 into the tip cup that is usually in the front of the van somewhere. Taxi Drivers: 10% is probably standard, but I am a rounder. A $8.22 fare will get $10. At the hotel: Front Desk: See the $20 Trick threads for that one. Bellman: Usually $1-5 per bag. There is some debate about whether you tip the guy who checks in your bags, the guy who delivers the bags or both. I usually go with both - $1-2 per bag. Valet Parking - $1-5. Again, debate about when you drop off/pick up/both. I tip on pickup only unless I have a special request at drop off. I will have some singles in my pocket, $3-4 as I wait for my car. The longer it takes, the fewer bills the valet gets. Housekeeping - $1-5 per day. I usually leave it on a pillow, on the bed. Or I'll leave it in a note marked "Housekeeping" Concierge: A tip of $5 for getting a dinner reservation is normal. A $10-20 tip for getting show tickets. For hard to get reservations at a restaurant or sold-out show it would be at least $20-50, depending on what your request was. Restaurant employees: Restaurant tipping is probably the one we're all most comfortable with. The standard is 15-20% of the total check. If you are dining on a comp or with a coupon, be sure to calculate the tip on the total before your discount. Buffet Staff: $1-5 per person. In the casino: Cocktail waitresses: $1-5 per drink. Some say a tip when you order gets your drink back faster, but I have not found that to be the case. Casino Host: No tip required. Many people will give gift cards as thank you gifts, but the general rule is no cash tips for host. Change personnel: With TITO this isn't as common, but the people who come to give you your jackpot handpay seem to always bring you small change so tipping is easy. I never feel obligated to tip for this unless they have done something extra for me like held the machine (and I tip for that when it happens) or showed me a machine that was a winner for me. Dealers: It varies by game, but often you can place a bet for the dealer along with your own. Or you can simply tip them directly. They can't take money by hand, so be sure to place it on the table and indicate it's a tip for them. Again, this is a general consensus, taking into consideration the variety of budgets we have here. I would be surprised if we got to 5 replies before someone tells me that I'm completely wrong. Just do what is most comfortable for you. Don't feel peer pressure to tip when you are not comfortable. And never, EVER let anyone pressure you into tipping for something. If someone complains to you about their tip, just walk away. That's their problem, not yours. I'm not saying everyone has my permission to be a jerk about it, but I hate the idea that people are pushed to give money to anyone in Vegas when they don't feel comfortable with it.
