How much should you tip?

Doorman

Confession: I don’t tip doormen.

True, I don’t often stay in places that have doormen, but when I do, I bristle at the fact that people give them neatly folded bills just for opening the door.  And yet I enjoy overtipping when the service dictates it, such as my hairdresser coming in on her day off to hide my grossly grey roots before I head off to an important conference.

One essential service that I feel is drastically under tipped is the housekeeping department in hotels.  We’ll tip the waiter who plunks a coke and cheeseburger in front of us, the cabbie who took us 4 blocks without uttering a word, the concierge for picking up the phone and making us a dinner reservation… but the housekeeper who busts her butt meticulously cleaning our room most often gets only her wages.

How do you do it all?” With a 2 and a 3 year old at home (and don’t forget that lab retriever) I consider myself a bit of an expert on this.   (more…)

The First Confession

Friday, February 12th, 2010

As I write this, I’m sitting at my grandfather’s large oak desk that was passed down to my father decades ago when Granddad retired from Farmer Construction, the family business he founded in 1951.  Sitting at this exact desk, Dad started Accent Inns 24 years ago and now it’s my turn.
